Careers Fairs


#DMUworks Graduate Recruitment and Placement Fair 2018

The #DMUworks graduate recruitment and placements fair took place on the 30th and 31st of October and was a great success, with many satisfied students and employers. Across the two days, approximately 2,000 students attended the fair and over 70 employers exhibited stands recruiting students for internships, placements, graduate roles and international opportunities. Some employers who attended the fair included Enterprise Rent-a-Car, FDM Group, Teach First and ASOS. 

During the fair there were also a number of helpful presentations from employers at the event that were attended by a range of students, including: 

  • I have no work experience, how do I get a job?
  • What do employers really look for in candidates?
  • Overcoming fears of networking
  • How a placement WILL benefit your career

The fair offered students a unique opportunity to talk with employers and learn about the different opportunities they have on offer. Many employers also advised students on how to succeed in applications and what skills they were looking for in students. To find out about other careers events taking place at De Montfort University please get in touch with us at We can also offer support for employers with recruiting our students and graduates for your roles by provide a bespoke service enabling you to target the right skillset a the right time.
