Heriot-Watt Careers Fair 2011

The team at Heriot Watt once again did GAAPS Actuarial proud helping to organise yet another fantastic event for future actuaries.

Over the day hundreds of actuarial and mathematics students busied themselves at the fair, where they were able to interact with perspective future employers, and come to the GAAPS stand to find out how we can help them progress through their chosen careers. We had fantastic feedback on the day from both students and employers; and one very delighted student won a Sony Bloggy from us!

So whether you are a candidate already at Heriot Watt, or thinking of making the move; or an employer who would like to join us at next years event please get in touch!
