As students tell us: "For those who need to find career opportunities a BU Careers Fair is a goldmine of information."
This is an informal event, where employers chat with a wide variety of BU students and graduates; from different courses, levels of career experience (including none), and from all social backgrounds/walks of life.
Use the event to see if a company, job, or sector fit your skills and ambitions, with zero commitment expected.
Even if you are not looking for a job, use the event to browse through possibilities for the future.
