If you’re a woman in the UK looking for a job in STEM, whether you are a recent graduate, at an early stage in your career, or want to return to STEM after taking a break, then the Finding Ada Online Careers Fair for Women in STEM on 16 November is for you!
We understand that it can be hard to not just find a job, but find the right job, and it doesn’t get any easier when you’re looking for your second and third jobs, or if you’re returning after a break. Searching through job listings sites and posting your CV online are both tedious tasks, and you’re always at the mercy of the algorithms used to sort applicants.
A better way to find a new job is to talk to recruiters directly, to have a conversation about their company and the jobs they have available, as well as chatting about your areas of interest and the career you want to develop. Having a video or audio chat with recruiters allows you to cut through the algorithms to make a real impression, and it gives you an unparalleled chance to learn about a company before you apply for a job there.
Talking to a company’s HR representative will help you understand which companies share your values and who you really want to work for. Because every interview is a two way street, and you should be assessing each company you talk to just as much as they are assessing you.
Our online careers fair will provide women in the UK with the opportunity to talk to recruiters from around the country, and from across all sorts of STEM fields. It’s an amazing opportunity to find out more about what employers are looking for, to start to form valuable relationships with recruiters, and to find specific jobs to apply for.
So sign up to our free careers fair today, and take the first step towards your next job!
