Introducing ConnEXPO – our new virtual careers fair

The on-campus employer-led events and careers fairs that usually take place during autumn term are this year being replaced by a brand new online ConnEXPO programme – featuring 10 days of interactive virtual events for University of Liverpool students, over three weeks from 27 October – 12 November.

Hosted on Handshake, the new online platform from Careers & Employability, ConnEXPO will enable students from all years of study and degree subject to connect with potential employers via virtual group and one to one sessions.

Sign-up and you will:

  • Gain an insight into working in different organisations and sectors
  • Find out about job opportunities for students and graduates
  • Pick up tips that will help with all stages of the recruitment process
  • Connect directly with our employer partners to ask questions and learn about their opportunities

Prepare for ConnEXPO

From 27 – 29 October our team of student Career Coaches will run virtual peer to peer sessions to help prepare your Handshake profile, answer your questions, and share tips on how to make the most out of attending virtual careers events like ConnEXPO.
