Description

UWS Computing Employer Networking Event at on 9th November 2017

At the event we are bringing together 80 students with representatives from ten companies in just one afternoon. Students will be able to speak directly to people with an interest in or responsibility for graduate/placement recruitment. The event allows companies to talent spot and recruit for placements or employment but for students it's about exposing them to the industry to make them aware of what employers want.

Students will be on the courses such as Web & Mobile Development, Computer Science, Computer Games Technology, Computer Games Development, Computer Animation, Business Technology, Information Technology, Music Technology and Computer Networking.

The event is mainly for students in years 3 & 4 and post graduates but we also invite exceptional students in years 1 & 2.

The programme for the event is:

Time

1200 Rooms open for early arrival by industry guests if any early setup required

1230 Student registration closing at 1255 prompt

1230-1300 Lunch for industry guests, business networking

1300-1400 Employer Introductions - Each employer speaks to all students in lecture theatre for 4 minutes

1400-1530 Formal Employer/Student Speed Networking

1530-1600 Informal Employer/Student Networking

We ask employers to give a short introductory presentation (4 minutes) to include an overview of the company and what it does, graduate roles, any sector insights in terms of skills demands etc. If you can send any slides to me by Monday 6th November midday that would be great.

Speed networking will involve employers at their table whilst student groups rotate round between employers at 8 minute intervals. That means every 8 minutes you will meet a group of 8 students on a range of computing courses. It's a very efficient way of meeting lots of students and getting your company name known. You are welcome to bring along a pop up stand and /or any information or display materials. Water, Tea and coffee will be available throughout the afternoon.
