The Careers Fair is an expo-style event of large and medium-sized employers from around Australia who recruit university graduates.
The Fair will be held on the Hobart Campus on Friday 11 March 2011 from 12pm -3pm.
These employers come to the Careers Fair to meet with potential employees – which is where you come in!
Each employer has a stand with information about their organisation and employment opportunities. Many organisations also bring along a recent university graduate who is now employed with them. A wide range of employers attend, from fields such as accountancy, law, finance and banking, engineering, IT, and local, state and Commonwealth Government departments.
The Careers Fair provides an excellent opportunity for students to meet employers and gain some great networking and self marketing skills. It also helps students gain an awareness of the key employers within particular industries and their graduate employment opportunities. Make sure you read our Careers Fair tips sheet (PDF 81KB) for tips on how to prepare for the Fair and make best use of time on the day.
