Workshops and events

We coordinate a calendar of industry events on campus each year designed to introduce you to employers in your sector and help you explore career possibilities.

Our annual Career Expos bring recruiters on campus to discuss graduate programs, vacation work and other employment opportunities. Attending employers share information about successful applications, recruitment timetables and organisation identity.

Expos are designed to help you explore your career options and successfully transition to the professional world of work.
Make sure you put our upcoming employer events and expos into your diary.
