The University hosts a number of events throughout the year that can connect you with potential employers. Be sure to register on CareerHub for the events below as space may be limited. You can also "Like" our page on Facebook to find any other off campus networking opportunities and programs.
What are employer presentations and workshops?
Employers frequently give presentations at the university when they are looking for specific intakes of graduates or undergraduates for internships. These presentations are designed to attract students looking for particular employers, industries or roles. They are a good opportunity to network with potential employers, gain insights into their organisations, and what they are looking for.
Employers often also hold workshops throughout the year to educate students on career-related issues, e.g. how to survive an assessment centre or interviewing skills. These sessions do not focus on the employer or increasing their brand awareness, but are provided on a pro-bono basis in order to help students to achieve their career goals.
You can find out about employer presentations and workshops above and through CareerHub.
