A graduate recruitment event held at Sheffield University has been heralded as a huge success after a record number of exhibitors attended.
The Yorkshire Autumn Graduate Recruitment Fair took place yesterday (November 4th) from 10:30 GMT until 16:00 in the campus' Octagon Centre.
A large number of employers were present hiring for both immediate roles and those starting in summer 2010.
Summer internships and placement opportunities were also available for those looking to expand their experience and prepare for entering the competitive world of work.
Sponsored by Deloitte, the event featured around 140 exhibitors, including Abercrombie & Fitch, Airbus, Aldi, Ernst & Young, GlaxoSmithKline and IBM.
The university is also set to host the five-day Virtual International Careers Fair from November 9th and the Spring Into Jobs Fair on February 24th.
The former will give graduates a chance to meet foreign recruiters online, while the latter will give employers a chance to promote themselves to students at the start of the second semester of the academic year.
