Up and coming employer speed networking events
e-Placement Scotland is giving employers the chance to meet university students at various up and coming speed networking events. These events allow employers early access to students before they graduate, providing a platform to showcase career opportunities available within your organisation.
There will be three events running over the next few months, and final dates will be confirmed once employers have confirmed their interest. The participating universities are as follows:
• Dundee University – Wednesday 9 March 2016 2016 (see here)
• Strathclyde University – Friday 18 March 2016
Our most recent speed networking event was held at Edinburgh Napier in October 2015, with 30 students across various disciplines getting the chance to meet Aggreko, codeplay, FanDuel and J.P. Morgan.
If you would be interested in attending, please contact Jamie Duncan on 01506 472 200, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Remember, it’s free to advertise your positions to our student network on the e-Placement website.
