Careers Fair

On Monday and Tuesday this week the university are holding a careers fair. This is the first point in my university life where I really feel like attending such an event, not to mention feeling that it would significantly benefit me, what with being in my third year and all. Only problem is I have a solid day of lectures on both of the days.

This is just sods law at its best really. I mean of the 2 days they hold a huge fair I can’t go to a single hour of the 8 on offer in total. Luckily the major players in IT do visit the school of computing specifically, but its really not that brilliant that I have to miss out on meeting representatives from companies that won’t. If it had been any other year I’d probably have missed the lectures, attended the fair and caught up on the work later but being third year I really don’t wish to do this, nor do I think it would be advisable.

What I’d like to know is which person in the careers service organises these events without checking to make sure that the majority of third years can make at least an hour of the proceedings. Assuming they don’t miss lectures, I can’t name a single computing student who can go to any of the fair, and that makes a fairly large number of people missing out which one would imagine the careers service should endeavour to avoid.

    How do you have so many lectures? I haven’t looked into it really, but I have a free hour between 1 and 2 tomorrow and a free hour between 1 and 2 tomorrow. I can’t imagine I can’t get to any of it (especially tomorrow, I only have lecture sandwiching that hour) if I made the effort 🙂

    I can’t really check because to do that I would need to know what time it’s on and nobody seems to have bothered to post anything on about it. But I would imagine that is the case, we all have 11-4 solid on Tuesday.

    I know what you mean about wanting to actually attend these events this year though, last year I never felt the need to go but this year I’m going to be attending a few to at least satisfy my curiosity.
