We often get feedback that Careers Fairs don’t feel particularly ‘mature-friendly’; all those glossy posters of smiley young people and sharp-suited employers assuming that visitors over the age of 25 must be members of staff! So, we thought we should try to offer an opportunity for employers and potential employees to meet and get to know each other a bit better, in a more relaxed and friendly environment.
Therefore, in partnership with the Careers Centre, the LLC is planning an opportunity for mature undergraduates to meet local graduate employers in an informal setting over coffee and biscuits just before the summer Careers Fair on 10 October. It will be in held at The Edge (after which students can choose to go on and visit the fair in the sports hall). LLC staff will be on hand to facilitate the meeting.
This is a restricted event and students should fall into one of the following categories:
• LLC student
• LLC Learning Champion
• Plus Programme undergraduate student
• Undergraduate student in receipt of DSA
