Events & Fairs

We host a varied programme of employer events, careers fairs and skills workshops for careers and placement support. The autumn term is our busiest time for events as this is when the majority of employers are keen to meet you and it fits in line with deadlines for many placement and graduate opportunities.

Careers Uncovered

Ever wondered what it’s like to work in a particular area? The Careers Uncovered sessions are delivered by graduate employers and/or Aston graduates and are designed to give you useful insights into a range of career paths.  This way we hope you can make better career decisions and are more likely to secure jobs you enjoy.

Skills Workshops

A number of employers and advisers from Careers+Placements run skills workshops throughout the year. The interactive workshops are usually based on recruitment processes such as application forms, interview techniques, assessment centres, psychometric tests etc. When delivered by employers, they also include some information about the company and the opportunities available.

Practice Interviews with employers

During the autumn and spring term we offer practice interviews with employers. These are usually competency-based to ensure a broad learning experience for you and employers will give you detailed feedback on your performance to help with future interviews.
