Top 3 tips

1. Do some research. Find companies from the sector you’re interested in and see which events they are attending. Before attending, do some research on who they are and what they are currently doing. This way you’ll be able to have a targeted approach and your background research will impress staff who might be involved in recruiting for that company.

2. Network and hoard information. Attend events and target the people or companies you want to speak to. The buzz of these events will leave you a little dazed, making it difficult for you to remember everyone’s name, so collect flyers, business cards and company information. That way you can take some time to research the companies when you get back home, and see whether you would like to apply there.

3. Be open minded. Unless you are doing a particular course to do a certain job, it’s pretty daunting choosing a career. Everyone feels that way, but lots of exciting companies have roles that you would be good for, even roles that you might have never considered.
