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.
Undergraduate of the Year
TARGETjobs Undergraduate of the Year is our flagship annual competition. For undergraduates in years 1–4 and now in its fourth year, Undergraduate of the Year comprises a very special set of awards that focus on the personalities, skills and abilities of students from a range of degree subjects. It provides the opportunity for the very best to emerge and win prizes, ranging from overseas trips to specially commissioned internships.
