1000 students attend ECS Careers Fair

Published: 13 February 2008

The first ECS Careers Fair was attended by 1000 students seeking graduate jobs and summer placements from 33 diverse companies.

The students were able to find out more about career and placement opportunities with an impressive range of blue-chip and high-tech companies, including many local companies.

The Fair took place on Tuesday 12 February on the Highfield Campus, and is the first targetted-ECS event to have been held in the University. The enthusiastic response from both companies and students means that it will be held again next year.


Many of the company representatives were ECS graduates, now working for companies such as Ernst & Young, Roke Manor Research, Selex Comms and IT Innovation. Among the most popular stands was the CV Clinic organized by FactSet. As well as the exhibition stands a number of companies gave short presentations.
