What to bring and wear

T-shirts and jeans are absolutely fine. Smart casual is very welcome too. Most of the company teams will be in t-shirts and jeans. The Old Truman Brewery tends to go temperature-mad (despite our best efforts), so please do consider the weather:

  • For summer, wear something breathable.
  • For winter, plan an outfit that’s warm but not bulky.

We do offer a cloakroom, so in the likelihood that you’re wearing a coat you’ll be able to drop it off free of charge. There’s lots of freebies to be had at the event so you’re going to want to free up your hands to grab these.

A CV – or a business card – is vital in getting companies to remember you. You’ll be in competition with hundreds of top candidates, so be sure to leave your favourite company with something to remember you by – and don’t forget to put your contact details on there!

Make sure you also know the email address that you registered with, for event registration.

You’ll want to ensure you’ve got enough CV’s for the event, but don’t use this as an opportunity to start a leafleting campaign. You should only give your CV to a company if they ask for it. Some may just require an email address or a link to your online portfolio.
