Careers fairs

Meet LSE students at our flagship careers events

Our sector-specific careers fairs 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.

Amongst continued uncertainty, we are committed to delivering a series of high-quality events and services. Our sector specific fairs will run online and we will continue to leverage 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.
