Careers fairs

Meet LSE students at our flagship careers events

Our sector-specific careers fairs held on campus in London and overseas in Brussels, Beijing, Shanghai, and Hong Kong are our flagship events and a great way to raise the profile of your organisation. 

They are the most effective way to engage in a short timeframe with a cross-section of our student and graduate population.

Due to COVID-19 we have adapted our employer events to ensure the safety of staff, students and employers. For Michaelmas Term 2020 (September – December) we will deliver all employer events virtually. We will pivot back to an on-campus model as soon as conditions permit. We have selected innovative virtual platforms and tools to provide quality interactions between students and employers. Our virtual offer is complemented with a suite of online marketing and advertising services to help enhance employer brand visibility and reach.
