Welcome to TARGETjobs Events
TARGETjobs Events host unique events for career focused students of all years to meet and network with graduate employers. Our events are designed to showcase the best UK undergraduates, either through competitions or ‘invitation only’ career events.
TARGETjobs Events are an excellent opportunity to get you noticed and improve your employability skills. Past winners and attendees have won internships and placements with leading recruiters which has often led to full time employment after graduation.
Take a look through our upcoming events. You can apply to as many as you feel you are suitable for, all events are pre screened and ‘invitation only’ meaning selected students get quality time with recruiters.
We look forward to meeting you at our events and wish you luck with your applications.

A Day in the City
A day in the City 2014 took place Monday 13 January and gave 40 selected students a unique chance to gain an insight into the life of a City lawyer. They spent the day with two top law firms; RPC and Dentons, and networked with lawyers, trainees and graduate recruiters. Attendees were put through their paces with sessions designed to reflect the application process as well as bespoke skills workshops offering guidance and a chance to have questions answered.
Attendees were first year law or second year non-law students, and were invited to attend after completing an online application (CV and cover letter) and being successful during a telephone interview where they demonstrated their interest in a career in city law and motivations for wanting to attend the event.
City law for ethnic minorities
200 students + over 10 top city law firms + 4 days in June 2014 = City law for ethnic minorities

Two exclusive events for students interested in finding out more about law in the City. You'll have two days (overnight stay included) to network with key figures, take part in business games and case studies, visit firms and find out first-hand what it takes to be a City lawyer. Whether you're an undergraduate student studying law or considering converting this is an event that's not to be missed...and it looks great on your CV!
