Internships and Work Experience Fair

Date of Internships and Work Experience Fair

Wednesday 10 February 2021

Student audience

University of Birmingham students from all year groups and degree discipline as well as recent graduates are invited to attend the Internships and Work Experience Fair. These students and graduates will be looking for challenging work experience, summer internships, placements and volunteering opportunities, both in the UK and abroad. 

Suitable exhibitors

This event is open to all recruiters looking to promote work experience opportunities for 2021 and to raise your profile ahead of the 2021–22 recruiting year. The Fair is suitable for large and small/medium sized businesses, including charitable organisations.

The Fair is also open to businesses operating outside of the UK, to showcase a variety of work experience, including in-person and virtual internship opportunities to our students across the globe.

Event online platform

We will be working with Career Fair Plus to host our upcoming virtual career fair, to create an intuitive, user-friendly experience for students and employers. Watch this video demo of a virtual career fair on Career Fair Plus to see how it works.

Virtual career fairs are online 'events' that allow employers and students to meet remotely through voice calls or video chat rooms, and offer a number of advantages to both students and employers. Employers enjoy lower recruiting costs through the ability to virtually screen quality candidates, receive electronic resumes and save time and costs associated with traveling to participate in on-site events.
