HE Conference for Careers Advisors and Employer Outreach Teams:What Employers Want
Following on from last year’s successful conference, this event is once again kindly being hosted by London Business School.
The conference will feature a number of employer-led sessions exploring the challenges faced when recruiting onto their graduate programmes.
We will also review changes to some of the selection and assessment processes being introduced by employers and discuss the must-knows for graduates when entering applying to schemes and entering the world of work.
In addition, we will look at the UK graduate labour market and some of the solutions being used by universities responding to the changing needs of employers.
Plus there will be lots of networking time to meet with a wide range of employers.
Participating employers include: Deloitte, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, FDM, Frontline, PwC, SAP, Teach First, Thales and Virgin Media
