Employability Festival 2019

7 October - 18 October 2019
Canterbury and Medway cross-campus event

Employability Festival dates
In 2018 we changed the dates of Employability Festival on both campuses to avoid conflict with academic deadlines, reading weeks and to meet more graduate scheme closing dates.
Academic School, Professional departments, Kent Union and GK Unions events.
Academic Schools, Professional departments and Kent Union are invited to contribute events for EmpFest19 on each campus:

  • Canterbury (7-18 October)
    • Please view the online #EmpFest19 events diary for date and time availability.
    • Please submit your events via the EmpFest booking form.
    • Deadline for submission is Monday 2 September
  • Medway (7-18 October)
    • Please view the online #EmpFest19 events diary for date and time availability
    • Please submit your events via the EmpFest booking form
    • Deadline for submission is Monday 2 September
    • We have secured extra capacity on the Campus Shuttle for Medway students to travel to and from the Careers Fair

    The highlight of the Employability Festival at Medway will be the GradJobs Live! recruitment event.  This will be an escorted coach trip to Olympia, London where students will have the opportunity to meet top UK and international companies, get expert advice, take part in essential workshops and lots more.

Please note that Employability Festival events will be marketed via an online programme only this year, which allows for a later deadline.
