Candidates and recruiters sign up for annual Consultancy Careers Fair
 
  Fifty consulting
organisations will field
more than 500 recruiters
at this year’s
Consultancy Careers Fair
to be held at The
Barbican on both the
evening of the 9th
October and throughout
the day of the 10th
October. And it looks as
if they will all be kept
pretty busy as job
seeker bookings are
already rolling in,
showing that some
(thousands) at least are
enthusiastic about
driving their careers
forward, despite
uncertainties about the
wider economic outlook.
   The line-up of
exhibitors includes
three of the “Big Four”
firms, some of the
fastest growing
consultancies and a huge
range of major
consulting brands like
Accenture, IBM, Navigant
Consulting and EDS.
 
     The fair, which
attracted about 2,500
consulting candidates
last year, represents a
unique opportunity for
job seekers to find out
which firms are right
for them. Candidates
attending the fair will
be able to meet
recruiters in person and
gain insights from
consultants who work for
the different firms.
They will be able to
hear first-hand what it
is like to work for the
firms, what inspires
their staff, and what
makes that employer
stand out from the
crowd.
   For the first time
this year, the
Consultancy Careers Fair
will have an evening
event on 9th October,
allowing those
candidates who can’t
spare a full day to
attend the fair on 10th
October to meet the
 
  companies they are
interested in after
work.
   As in previous years,
the 2008 event will be
supported by an
extensive marketing
campaign that includes
promotion on a range of
websites other than
Top-Consultant.com and
TopITconsultant.com, as
well as offline channels
including The Evening
Standard
.
   In previous years,
due to capacity
limitations, tickets
have not always been
available for purchase
on the days of the
event. To avoid
disappointment
candidates should
register early at
