Discover Careers (1-3 October 2024)

Discover Careers is a drop-in exhibition style event to help you get thinking about all things careers, jobs and employability.

It’s our biggest event of the year, running over 3 days in McEwan Hall and has something to offer all students, including the chance to:

  • meet over 100 employers
  • discover people, events and resources to help you with your career decisions throughout your studies and after you graduate

So whether you’re looking for part-time work, thinking about how you can build experience, or want to start exploring options or making applications for roles after graduation, you’ll find inspiration within the event.

There’s no preparation needed – our friendly and supportive staff, which includes lots of students just like you, will be on hand to help. There will be a wide range of employers and professional bodies attending each day, and they are all keen to help you have a great experience. 

When: Tuesday 1, Wednesday 2 and Thursday 3 October 2024, 1:00-6:00pm

Where: On-Campus - McEwan Hall, Bristo Square, Edinburgh

During these 3 days the Careers Service is relocating to McEwan Hall  - we hope to meet you there.

The spectrum of different exhibitors at the event really brought home how many potential career paths there are out there, and even if none of those jobs are for you, it is fascinating to get a feel for different workplaces
