Once again, we have a busy programme of events this autumn term! Events are free to attend for QMUL students and are the perfect opportunity for you to meet with employers who are looking to recruit students just like you. We’ve got a range of careers information fairs, employer presentations, skills sessions, workshops and much more to look forward to.
Last year, over 2000 students attended more than 270 events on campus. We worked with a huge range of employers including: Teach First, Bloomberg, Civil Service, Morgan Stanley, Santander, Citi, Deloitte, EDF, HM Treasury, PwC, J.P Morgan, IBM and many more!

* Save the date!* Coming up soon, we have our Focus on Finance (3rd-14th Oct) and Focus on Technology (17th-21st Oct) events:
Focus on Finance is our programme of events designed to showcase the range of areas in the finance sector you can work in. Over 40 employers will be visiting the campus to
showcase their opportunities to QMUL students and give you a unique insight into their work. From Accounting to Investment Banking and beyond this is your opportunity to find out more about the sector, and network with your potential future employer. Look out for the Business & Finance Fair on 11th October, as well as workshops and presentations from Barclays and PwC amongst others.
Focus on Technology is our programme of events which explore the range of areas you can pursue in the technology sector. Events include an applications masterclass from IBM, and a ‘what employers want’ workshop delivered by Accenture. The Technology Fair on 20th October is designed to demonstrate the range of opportunities available in this growing sector, from placements and internships to graduate roles. We’ll be welcoming top employers to campus, including Amazon, Bloomberg and Deloitte amongst others.
Why get involved?
