A key feature of the virtual fair is that all attendees can book a 10-minute uninterrupted appointment slot with their chosen recruiter/s. Many of the recruiters taking part also offer internship/placement opportunities as well as part time work.

Catherine Lyster, LYIT’s Careers Officer said: “We are delighted that despite the pandemic employment opportunities for graduates are so positive. The process for joining the event is incredibly simple and attendees simply download the Career Fair Plus app and scroll through the list of recruiters taking part to book an appointment.”

The Career Fair Plus app also contains top tips on CV presentation, questions to ask at career fairs as well as top tips on how to get the most from the LYIT Virtual Career Fair.

Catherine says: “LYIT hosted a similar event in 2020 which achieved excellent results for both students and employers and hopes that this year’s event will be no different.”

LYIT’s Head of Sport, Michael Murphy says: “Grab this opportunity with both hands. It’s a brilliant opportunity for employers and students to meet and we look forward to building on the success of last year’s event”.
