This Festival runs from 16 November to 20 November although the static content will be live for 1 week after the event.

We’ve adapted our popular careers fairs into a new and innovative virtual offering which we call Focused Festivals. Encompassing a range of career options, you’ll be able to take part in engaging virtual activities, interact with industry professionals and learn what knowledge, attributes, skills and experiences you want to develop to build success in your career journey. 

Never in our lifetimes has such a focus fallen upon the healthcare sector with its importance in our lives and wider policymaking. As we enter into the immediate aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic This Focused Festival invites King’s students to learn more about this essential and diverse industry and meet representatives from across public and private health, pharmaceuticals, health consultancies, biotechnology, bioengineering, health policy, neuroscience and specialist related industries. 

By attending the Festival, you’ll get to meet employers at our virtual stands to discover what careers and roles are out there, learning how others built success, and gain insight to the everyday life of working in health, pharma and life sciences related areas. You’ll also have opportunities to attend educational workshops to enhance your knowledge on a range of industry-related topics, for example how healthcare has flexed and developed in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. You can speak to recruiters, graduates and members of the profession who are looking for talent and hear about vacancies which may include spring weeks, internships, graduate or entry-level roles or even experienced hire opportunities. 

Wherever you are on your career journey, our Focused Festivals are a fantastic opportunity for King’s students to learn about a particular set of industries. You’ll discover what’s out there, focus your career plans and get to know the different organisations and what the industry culture is like. If you are looking to take action towards your next steps after King’s, you will be able to enhance your understanding of recruitment and assessment processes – a great way to gain a head start on your graduate job search!
