Hybrid Recruitment Festival 2022
This October UCC Career Services is excited to host our first ever Hybrid Graduate Recruitment Festival.
Over 3 days you will have the opportunity to connect with a huge range of employers who want to meet you.
On the 4th of October the online section of the festival will take place on Graduateland, an online careers fair platform. Here you can learn more about each company, chat and video call with employers, apply for jobs and more.
On the 5th and 6th of October we will be joined by 100 employers in the Hub (see timetable below). Each group has a specific focus but they all want to meet as many students as possible from all disciplines. The best way to connect with employers is to chat to them online on the 4th, if there is a good connection let them know you will stop by their stand on campus for a chat.
To ensure that you are meeting and engaging with the best employers you should attend the online section of the festival and as much on the on-campus stands as possible.
Step one is to create your profile via this link. It takes no more than 3 minutes, so what are you waiting for?
