Lab Sciences Careers Day

WIT’s inaugural Laboratory Sciences Careers Fair on Wednesday, 7 March 2018


As part of our ongoing engagement with industry, the Applied Biology, Molecular Biology with Biopharmaceutical Science, Pharmaceutical Science, and Physics for Modern Technology programmes  in the Department of Science are developing WIT’s inaugural Laboratory Sciences Careers Fair on Wednesday, 7 March 2018 to enable employers to meet our final-year students.

These students are currently engaged in the final year of their degree (three-year, Level 7) or honours degree (four-year, Level 8) and will be available for work in June 2018. This is an ideal opportunity for employers to engage directly with highly-skilled individuals who have been trained to meet the demands of modern industry.

The majority of the morning will be devoted to a networking event where employers can meet students and discuss career opportunities. Each employer attending will receive a Laboratory Sciences Careers Day Graduate Handbook containing information on approximately 70 students, including a short biography and contact details.

Attendance at the event, including an information stand for each company where you can display promotional materials, is free. However, in order to defray the cost of the event, we are looking to sell advertisement space in the Graduate Handbook. The cost of a full-page ad with logo displayed is €500 and the cost of displaying the company logo is €200. This advertisement will allow your company to reach a target audience of available graduates, as well as WIT staff. Your company, including a link to your website, will also be featured on a dedicated Laboratory Sciences Careers Day website.
