Career Fair and Graduate Recruitment Programme
Graduate Recruitment is an on-going activity at the WBS facilitated by the WBS Careers and Coaching Area. It peaks from July to October in the Career Fair and the Graduate Recruitment Programme to which a large number of employers are invited to showcase their companies to the WBS students.
Graduate Recruitment Presentations are excellent opportunities for companies to share their brand and discuss their value proposition in an exclusive presentation forum which is usually followed by a cocktail party at which company representatives and students are able to network.
The annual Career Fair offers companies the opportunity to showcase their brands to WBS students and alumni. Generally held at an exclusive upmarket venue, the Fair is always guaranteed to draw an excellent response from our student and alumni groups. The date for the Fair will be advertised three months before the prospective date.
