Asia careers fair 2019

Hosted by LSE Careers

LSE Careers is once again collaborating with Imperial College London and University of Cambridge to bring you Careers Fairs in Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong.

We are also delighted to welcome students from elite partner universities.

Feedback from previous fairs has been highly positive, with 90% of students who attended in 2018 saying they felt more informed about employment opportunities in mainland China and Hong Kong.

Who can attend the fairs?

The fairs are aimed at students returning to either mainland China or Hong Kong and looking for employment in an international or Chinese company.

Only students and alumni from the following universities can attend the fairs:

  • LSE

  • University of Cambridge

  • Imperial College London

  • Columbia University

  • University of Chicago

Only LSE students can register through this page. All other university students should register through their own career services.

How to prepare

Do your research

Research the employers online prior to attending the fair. It’s an opportunity for you to find out about the employer, roles available and the recruitment process. Employers will expect you to have done a little research on their organisation to make the most of the opportunity.

Vacancies on offer

The majority of employers are recruiting for full time graduate positions that start in the autumn of 2019. Others have immediate roles. Some employers will also be recruiting summer interns for summer 2019.

Will organisations be holding job interviews at the fairs?

Organisations won't be holding formal interviews at the Fairs. However, at past fairs some organisations have held informal discussions so come prepared. If an employer wishes to invite you to interview they will contact you directly.

How can I attend?

To attend one of our Asia career fairs, LSE students will be able to book an Eventbrite ticket from the following links from the beginning of Summer Term 2019.

Please note

You will be responsible for your own transport and accommodation in China at the time of the fairs. Although we try to ensure that no last-minute changes will occur with these events, we cannot guarantee this and therefore you are strongly advised to take out insurance. We cannot be held responsible for any changes or cancellation of the fairs.

Once you have registered your place for the fair, we expect that you attend. If you do not turn up at an event you have said you will attend, you may also deprive another student of a place.
