The Careers & Internship Fair 

Wednesday 20th October, 10am - 4pm

The Durham Careers & Internship Fair is an annual event which enables graduate recruiters to meet a wide range of students and talk to them informally about aspirations, interests and opportunities. The Fair is a great opportunity to make personal contact with a large number of interested, high quality students. It is by far the most cost-effective way to meet potential recruits. A diverse range of local, national and international employers, voluntary organisations and higher education institutions attend the event.

This event is aimed at all science faculty students and researchers and we welcome recruiters with summer internships or placements to fill as well as graduate positions.

There are over 3000 students in the science faculty and many of these students are seeking a career within a related sector and the Fair offers organisations the chance to speak with talented and interested science undergraduates directly.
