One of Australia’s largest careers fairs is here again! On Thursday March 5 we’ll host over 80 employers, industry bodies and student associations – all coming to Curtin Stadium to help you prepare for graduation.
March actually marks the opening of applications for many grad programs (for commencement in 2016), making it a fantastic time to start working towards graduation goals.
The employment market is extremely competitive – approximately 30% of students will not secure employment upon graduation. This reality is making it increasingly important to develop a broad range of skills (beyond technical skills learnt within your course) in addition to understanding what employers are looking for; formal recruitment processes; and, how to nail your job applications.
Take this opportunity to chat to industry representatives both in-person and online about to where to source opportunities, what they look for in candidates and how to build meaningful experiences and networks that allow you to progress towards your career objectives. We also have mini career development workshops running throughout the event and the official launch of Curtin Challenge in addition to the usual fun with food vans and career caricatures!
To see who’s attending and all related articles, please visit our Feature page. In addition to industry reps, Career Development Consultants will be available throughout the day to help give personalised advice on resumes and career direction and planning.
Whilst the event is particularly beneficial for final year students, we also greatly encourage all students to pop down. It’s never too early to start learning about your industry and building professional relationships.
