Event description

Description

We are hosting an exciting event on Thursday 20th October 2016 in the Faculty of Biological Sciences.

This event will have 3 sessions:

  1. Life Sciences Careers Fair - 11:00 - 3:30pm

  2. Faculty guided tour - 3:30 - 5:00pm

  3. Mentor/mentee networking event - 5:30 - 7:00pm


Please see the below description for more information about each session.


Life Sciences Careers Fair - Exhibitors, Companies, Organisations and Alumni

This is a great chance for exhibitors, organisations and companies to meet with Faculty of Biological Sciences students, promote placements, jobs or further study opportunities. It also provides students with an idea of the wide range of careers available and to allow time for informal conversations about those careers. Alumni are also welcome to attend this event and speak with current students and share experiences about their careers or to advertise their company. 

The faculty has approximately 2000 undergraduate and taught postgraduate students. Based on last years' attendance figures we estimate at least 400 students will attend the event.

Students are only likely to have 1 or 2 hours free, depending on their degree, so there should be a steady flow of students from 11am-3pm. 

  • There will be tables and chairs available for exhibitors and space for stands.

  • Set up time 10-11am. Take down time 3-3:30pm.

  • Lunch and drinks will be provided.


Faculty guided tour - 3:30 - 5:00pm

A guided tour of the faculty will take place between 3:30 - 5:00pm. This will give attendees the opportunity to see the wide range of facilities students in the Faculty of Biological Sciences have access to and use throughout their degrees.


Mentor/mentee networking event - 5:30 - 7:00pm

This networking event is open to new and continuing mentors, as well as alumni interested in the mentoring Scheme. For more information please visit: http://www.fbs.leeds.ac.uk/mentoring/

This session will provide new and continuing mentors with the perfect opportunity to meet with mentees, network with other mentors and enjoy a range of food and drinks. 

This event will also be open to alumni who are wishing to find out more about the mentoring scheme, speak with current mentors and ask any questions they have relating to the scheme. 

Attendees will also have the chance to meet our Employability and Professional Development Officer, Tim Goodall - who established the mentoring scheme in 2014. 

  • Food and drink will be available at this session. 


How to sign up to the event:

  • Please select the sessions you wish to attend and fill in your information.

  • We are aware that some attendees will only wish to attend particular sessions e.g. Careers Fair or networking event. Therefore to avoid disappointment and confusion on our behalf, it is essential that you only sign up to each of the sessions that you wish to attend.

If you have any queries relating to the event please contact Tim Goodall (t.goodall@leeds.ac.uk)

We hope to see you there!
