There's Still Time to Register for Gradu8 - The Online Graduate Recruitment and Careers FairBy Total Jobs, PRNE
Thursday, November 4, 2010
LONDON, November 5, 2010 - Graduate job seekers aiming to get a footing on the first rung of the
career ladder are reminded that the Gradu8 Fair is starting on Monday,
November 8th 2010.
The five-day event, which is taking place exclusively online at
Gradu8.com, is the leading graduate recruitment (www.gradu8.com/) fair
of its kind in the UK. Rather than travelling to an exhibition hall, graduate
job seekers are afforded access to career advice from industry experts from
the comfort of their own home.
Organised by totaljobs.com, the event will connect graduate jobseekers
and recruiters in an online 'virtual' meeting place, with the professionals
of tomorrow able to talk directly with potential employers; asking them
questions, learning more about their graduate schemes and gaining a better
understanding of the right career path to take.
It's not too late to register for the Gradu8 Fair; graduates need to
simply log on to Gradu8.com and submit their email address, a password, their
qualification and their year of graduation. Registration is free, and
attendees will also be able to submit a topic they think is worthy of
discussion at the fair, which is an excellent opportunity to share their
concerns and air any grievances.
The Gradu8 Fair will host a number of interactive seminars, one of which
will allow graduates to assess what type of company they would like to work
for. Topics for discussion will include whether big brands are the right ones
to target, how to choose the right company to apply to and whether there are
advantages to working for a small company over a big one.
Other seminars scheduled over the course of the week include getting the
most out of a gap year and how it can boost a graduate's career prospects,
creating a personal online brand and whether a recruiter is likely to take a
look at your Facebook profile before deciding whether to hire you.
It's not all about graduate jobs (www.totaljobs.com/Graduate/),
though. The Gradu8 Fair is also a chance for businesses and organisations to
showcase their corporate credentials and highlight the graduate job
opportunities they offer. Companies attending include Boots, PWC, KPMG,
Accenture, ACCA, Train2Game and IBM, so graduates can look forward to talking
to organisations from a variety of industries and sectors. Also on hand will
be a team of career advisers, who will provide graduates with lots of advice
on getting their careers off the ground.
Attendees can get up to speed on the graduate recruitment market by
visiting totaljobs.com's Graduate Zone, which features almost 6,000 vacancies
for graduate job seekers. Visitors to the website can search for positions in
their preferred location, their desired salary and job type. They can also
sign up to receive daily alerts on new vacancies, be the first to hear about
graduate events and receive advice from some of the business world's leading
With the graduate recruitment market hotting up, graduate job seekers are
encouraged to register for the Gradu8 Fair to give their fledgling careers a
head start. Registration is free and with tailored advice, seminars and
interactive chat sessions, graduates may find their ideal position is closer
than they thought.
