Student and Graduate Opportunities Fair 

Our careers fair is going virtual this year and you are invited. Join us on Tuesday 3 November for your opportunity to check out the market, book informal chats with employers, and learn about the careers support available to you now and after university.

Book a slot with an employer

To book a slot with your preferred employer, visit and find The University of Portsmouth Online Student and Graduates Opportunities Fair. From here you can book a chat with an employer that interests you to talk about their organisation and the roles they advertise.

Booking your 1:1 slot now guarantees you won’t miss out on the day, but will also provide you with lots of insider knowledge, hints and tips that you can’t get from an employer website. You will also be entered into a draw to win one of five £15 Amazon vouchers.
