So many postgraduates attend graduate recruitment fairs but come away disappointed, having got nothing out of them – should you bother attending?
I started trying to write my annual “how to get the most out of the fairs” post – and got frustrated. I know when I talk to postgrads, they seem to “get it” but the blog posts on the topic don’t seem to work, so … time for a different approach.
One webcam, a new YouTube account, and some rudimentary editing in my office on a Friday afternoon, and here’s my first self-produced YouTube video on
- Should postgraduates bother to go to the graduate fairs?
- If you do go, what should you ask?
Let me know whether it’s worth doing any more “talking head” videos for the blog. I’ll only do it occasionally, but for some topics, I think it might work better than a long written post.
And if you don’t want to watch videos, but do want to know about graduate fairs, have a look at this post I wrote a couple of years ago, which is still relevant (apart from the fair dates have all changed of course!)
