AGCAS Careers Fairs Survey

The AGCAS Careers Fairs Survey reveals the considerable value students place on face-to-face interactions with employers. Findings highlight contrasting experiences of careers fairs for students in different year groups and in different subject disciplines. The research has implications for the planning of careers fairs and leads to recommendations that could strengthen practice in this area, for example the type of information that students value at careers fairs.

Despite the growing trend in online graduate recruitment processes, face-to-face careers fairs at UK universities are thriving. More than 90% of AGCAS-member careers and employability services ran careers fairs in the academic year 2015/16. In about 95% of these, the number of careers fairs remained the same or had increased on the previous year.

Findings from the survey highlight the challenges faced by careers and employability services in shaping tailored provision for students with different characteristics and diverse needs.
