Over 600 students took advantage of the London Metropolitan University Part-Time Jobs Fair this month to look for vacancies in a wide range of areas, from Marketing to IT services.

Organised by the Employment Service, based in Student Services, the fair proved to be a huge success.

Exhibitors included Karen Millen, Job and Talent, Historic Royal Palaces, Strike Jobs, Radisson Blue Edwardian and Life Before Work Travel.

The employers at the event said the fair was extremely well organised and were impressed with how professional and prepared the students were on the day.

Jillian Easy, Promotions and Marketing Manager for Life Before Work Travel, commented: "The students were well informed and ready to discuss job prospects. I found it very impressive how the University had set their students up for success. 

"I look forward to establishing an on-going relationship with the London Met as I felt their professionalism, kindness, and end-to-end involvement in their students' success has set them apart in the London education community."

Students said the event was very informative, and suggested that they would like to see more jobs fairs at London Met in the future. 

Student volunteers helped to promote the fair and assisted in co-ordinating activities - many thanks to them for all their efforts! 

The next jobs fair will be held in March 2013.
