Welcome to ConnEXPO – your virtual careers fair

The brand new online ConnEXPO careers programme features two weeks of exclusive virtual employer-led events for University of Liverpool students from now until 12 November.

Hosted on Handshake, the new online platform from Careers & Employability, ConnEXPO replaces the usual on-campus careers fairs, and offers the chance for students from all years of study and degree subject to connect virtually with potential employers via online 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 potential employer partners to ask questions and learn about their opportunities

Connect with potential employers and get hired

We have invited 75 organisations of all sizes, and from every employment sector to participate in this unique virtual careers programme.

Registering for ConnEXPO is a two-stage process. First view the employers and book onto the day (or days) that you are interested in. You can then build your own schedule of virtual events with the employers of your choice, signing-up to as many of the online sessions as you wish.

The focus this week is on discovering new career opportunities and making valuable connections, while next week is full of sessions that will provide practical hints and tips to help you through every stage of the recruitment process.

To help you navigate the many sessions that are taking place we’ve created a new ConnEXPO microsite featuring employer information, event listings, advice on making the most of virtual events, plus a series of new videos from employers talking about why they want to meet and recruit University of Liverpool students.

Bookings can be made on the day of the events, but places are limited, so visit the ConnEXPO microsite to find out more and register.
