Careers in Tech & Data Fair (2021 Dates TBC)

Why should you exhibit at this fair?

Target student Audience:

  • The Careers in Tech & Data Fair welcomes 50+ exhibitors and over 600 students and graduates.
  • Students from all degree subjects are encouraged to attend and to consider the range of options a Career in Tech & Data can offer, so the fair is ideal for uncovering talent from other disciplines. Typically a third of attendees are from Edinburgh’s internationally recognized School of Informatics, a third from other STEM disciplines and one third from other degree subjects.
  • The fair attracts both undergraduate and postgraduate students


Suitable for:

The theme of this fair is "opportunities for all", aiming to encourage students from a wide range of backgrounds to consider a tech-related career as a viable and appealing option.  We want the fair to be a showcase for the variety of roles and organisations that can come under the “Careers in Tech & Data” banner, offering inspiration for our Informatics students at the top end of the technical skills spectrum, through to options for students from other STEM subjects with solid relevant skills, through to options for students with a developing interest in this area and the capacity to learn.

  • This fair will help you widen your pool of potential candidates at a time of skills shortage
  • Don’t miss this opportunity to inspire and access a hard-to-reach audience: non-technical students interested in the IT/technology sector
  • This fair is ideal for companies seeking both candidates with a degree specifically relevant to Tech and for those who are open to either students from any STEM subject or students from any discipline.
  • The fair has been specifically designed to raise awareness of your organisation and encourage students to apply for your tech-related internships and graduate roles
