The Career Development Centre team will also be providing a CV clinic on the day to review and provide advice on preparing a CV. Deirdre Sheridan, Career Development Adviser at the Career Development Centre advises those thinking of attending the event: "A well-crafted CV is your sales brochure so come prepared. You never get a second chance at a first impression."
The event is a fantastic opportunity for both employers and students. Students should come prepared and identify the companies they want to approach and are interested in working for.
