Careers in Tech & Data is designed to help you raise your profile and promote your graduate positions, internships and other paid opportunities that can come under the “Tech & Data Careers” banner.

We run a campaign of events each year to help raise awareness of careers paths in the creative & cultural industries. The aim is to provide insight and inspiration and facilitate direct engagement between students and industry representatives who can provide information and advice on careers in their sector.

The Scottish Graduate Jobs Fair is Scotland's largest summer recruitment fair, designed to help your organisation connect with and recruit high-calibre, graduating students from across all Scottish universities in a virtual setting.

Discover Careers is our highest profile on-campus event in Semester 1. The event will provide a discovery-themed, exploratory welcome into the world of careers, employability and meeting recruiters for students from any discipline, any level of study and at any stage in career planning. It is a great opportunity for all kinds of recruiters to connect with our talented students and to collaborate with us as we jointly provide students with a fun and friendly first taste of in-person careers inspiration in week 3 or 4 of the academic year.

The Careers in Law Fair is designed to connect organisations with legal career opportunities in Scotland, UK and/or international legal jurisdictions with talented University of Edinburgh LLB Law students/graduates as well as students studying other disciplines who are interested in legal careers.
