Information for students

The Graduate Careers Expo is open to all students and is particularly valuable for those in their penultimate or final year of study. Students will get valuable information on how to prepare for graduate and vacation programs and employer representatives can provide you with useful suggestions on improving your employability skills and tips on enhancing your chances of getting a job.

You will also be able to:

  • gain first-hand information about potential employers and the structure of their recruitment processes.
  • collect application information and learn how to improve your chances of gaining employment.
  • explore career opportunities and work out what you are looking for from an employer.
  • make a good first impression before applying for a position.
  • Register for the Graduate Careers Expo and be sure to record it in your diary or e-calendar and set a reminder. Do whatever works best for you.
  • Review the list of the exhibiting employers prior to the expo. Read their profiles, decide which ones you want to meet and prepare a few questions to ask.
  • Attend any workshops before the event that will help you to prepare and make the most of the expo.
  • After you talk to each employer write down important information you learned that may be helpful in your application.
  • Make a positive first impression. The first thing the employer sees is what you’re wearing. No need for a suit – business casual is the way to go.
  • Make the most of the expo by talking to as many exhibitors as possible, including the companies you may not have heard of before.
  • Fill out our feedback form on the day to go into the draw to win some awesome prizes!
  • Visit our Careers Central stall to get your resume reviewed to ensure that it’s ready to go for your grad program applications!
