Is there a registration deadline?

The deadline to sign up is two weeks before each fair: January 10th for the Internship fair and February 21st for the Michael Smurfit Graduate Business School Fair.  

 

What resources will be provided to prepare employers for a successful fair experience?
You will receive an exhibitor booklet one week before the fair, detailing information about the location, stalls, catering, set up and run of the event.

In December, you will receive a guide on how to create your full profile on our MyCareer platform. This allows you to share information, videos, images and open vacancies with our students ahead of and after the fairs. Students are also able to 'follow' you on MyCareer to get notifications when you post a new vacancy on the system.
 
At that time, we will also invite you to share promotional videos, testimonials, images and/or texts that we will use in our promotional campaign across our Social Media channels and special edition Linkedin Newsletter.
When can employers begin setting up their stands?

Usually, you can arrive in the morning of the fair to set up your stand.

What information do we ask employers have at their stall?

During the fair...

How many staff members can employers have at their stall?

For health & safety reasons, up to four staff members can be at an employer stand at any given time.

 
What is the parking situation like on the day of the fair?

Parking is limited at UCD and it will not be possible to reserve a parking space on the day. We refer you to UCD's Guide to Parking on Campus for more information.

How can I deliver equipment and materials?

There is a delivery entrance to the hall which can be used for dropping off any equipment or materials on the morning of the fair only.

Will lunch be provided?

Yes, lunch will be provided and there will be vegan and gluten free options available. In line with the maximum allowance of four staff members per stall, to prevent food waste a maximum of four lunch vouchers per company are provided.

What does the stand look like/what is provided with the stand?

Every company is provided with one table with a tablecloth and two chairs. The dimensions of the table and the size of the stall area will be confirmed at a later date.
