Targeting students

Your event can be promoted to students in a number of ways:

  • Event schedule on the Career and Employment Service website (on campus events only)
  • Event schedule on CareerHub
  • Static PowerPoint slides (provided by you or developed by the Career and Employment Service) are sent to academic departments and the central student enquiry centre.  We will also take posters, but we prefer the slides.
  • Announcements on the Career and Employment Facebook page
  • Additionally, after your session, your presentation can be uploaded to our website as a PDF, reaching students that could not attend on the day
