The STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) Careers Expo is your opportunity to talk directly to potential employers who will tell you all about their recruitment programs, and scout for future talent.

UOW STEM Careers Expo 2022

This event has concluded.

The UOW STEM Careers Expo is a FREE annual event for UOW students, bringing together university students and major employers from across the country. Meet and speak with employers online about potential career options, internships and graduate recruitment opportunities. Employers are looking to interact with students who are potential employees. This is your chance to build a networking relationship with important career contacts.

It is most relevant for penultimate year students seeking vacation work and/or planning to apply for graduate programs in the following year. First and final year students are also encouraged to attend.

There will also be a Women in STEM panel after the expo in the Thought Bubble. Panellists will share their career journeys, inspire students with their stories and insights into embarking on a successful STEM career, as part of a Q&A style panel session.
