Opensoft have attended Hull University’s leading graduate fair to provide support to future engineering graduates.
 
Opensoft were recently invited to attend a local Yorkshire graduate fair with the opportunity to meet and greet talented engineering graduates. This was an excellent opportunity to allow the graduates to express themselves and showcase their technical knowledge and for Opensoft to spot upcoming leaders in engineering.

There were over 100 students attending the fair, coming from a variety of disciplines including electrical, mechanical and controls & automations. The students had  a mix of experience, with first, second and final year students all attending.

Hull University’s careers service advisor Tony Taylor commended the event “We’re very happy with the success of the event, particularly Opensoft’s involvement. The students were able to access a variety of companies and left with a lot of enthusiasm regarding their career prospects”.
The fair was set up in the Basil Reckitt Lecture Theatre with many recognisable names attending such as Siemens and Tata Steel. Lunch was provided to the company representatives in the Students Union beforehand for some networking. The graduate fair lasted for 2 hours to allow a steady flow of students throughout the event.

 
 
 

Company representatives Brian Swatten &  Joseph Bulmer were  impressed with the event and the students that showed determination and enterprise.

Bulmer says: “We like to encourage an open and honest working environment. This works to get the best out of individuals who are hardworking and ambitious. I was pleased to be able to interact with so many bright young people who want to make an impact in engineering.”
