Targeting students

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

  • Static powerPoint slides (provided by you or developed by the Career and Employment Service) are sent to academic departments, the central student enquiry centre and faculty notice boards.  We will also take posters, but we prefer the slides.
  • Staff in the appropriate department(s) will be asked to announce the session in class
  • Announcements on the Careers and Employment Facebook page
