Participating in on-campus industry engagement activities is a great way to connect with students from target disciplines; to share information about current and future employment opportunities and to develop your talent pipeline.
Employer information sessions (large organisations)
Build your organisation’s brand on campus and develop your talent pipeline by hosting an Employer Information Session for students from your target disciplines.
Employer Information Sessions enable you to:
- Engage and network with specific student cohorts
- Provide information about your organisation, employment opportunities and application processes
- Conduct recruitment activities
There are a limited number of Employer Information Sessions available each semester and organisations are required to submit an Expression of Interest. Student reach, diversity of industry representation, and available employment opportunities will be considered when reviewing requests.
Employer Information Sessions cost $660 (including GST) for a 60-minute session. This price covers the cost of venue hire, logistical coordination and promotion of the session.
Employers@theStudio (small to medium-sized enterprises)
Want to promote employment opportunities to students from target disciplines in a casual networking environment, free of charge?
On most Mondays in March, SMEs from all industries will have the opportunity to host a table in our Careers & Employability Studio from 12:00pm – 2:00pm. These sessions will be similar in format to a traditional careers fair, whereby students can drop in and chat with you about your organisation and existing employment opportunities.
Simply turn up with your organisation’s pull-up banner and/or any relevant print materials. We will provide a trestle table and chairs.
Please note that Employers@theStudio sessions will feature multiple organisations exhibiting at the same time in the same space, which may include competitor organisations from your sector. The Studio venue accommodates approximately 25 people at a time, so the number of industry representatives per organisation will be limited to no more than three.
