Careers fair proves popular

Michelle Legg and April Davies The annual UTAS Careers Fair has gone off with a bang, with eager students flooding the Fair, picking up tips, job ideas, information packs and freebies.

The Careers Fair is an expo-style event of large and medium-sized employers from around Australia who recruit university graduates.

A diverse range of stalls were on offer, including accounting firms, law firms and various mining companies.

Professor David Sadler, Pro-Vice Chancellor of Students and Education, officially opened the event. He congratulated Jane Mirowski and her co-workers in the Support and Equity Unit for the well-organised event.

Fifth- year UTAS Arts/Law student Michelle Legg, 22, is considering one day going into the field of international law.

“I found the Australian Youth Ambassadors stall pretty interesting,” she said.

Her friend April Davies, 23, is also in her fifth-year of an Arts/Law degree at UTAS.

“We’ve picked up some good books today and we’ve signed up to an email list about graduate jobs.”

April hopes to go into family law one day.

The UTAS Support and Equity booth and  UTAS Careers Advisors were also on hand at the fair, to give students tips and information for making their resume really stand out from the crowd.
