Do your research

Before the event, research the employers attending to find out which employers suit your interests and your industry.

Follow up

Ensure you follow up on opportunities. If you have a conversation that goes well, write a thank-you email to the recruiter after the engagement event, just as you would for an interview. You may consider attaching your resume to the e-mail if you feel it's appropriate and make reference to the conversation you had with the individual.

I can't attend the week. Will the event be held another time?

If you can't make this event, there will be plenty of other opportunities to network with employers throughout the year via other industry-specific events which are part of UNSW's Launch Your Careers series as well as our Employer Presentations.

I am not a UNSW student. Can I still attend?

This employer engagement event is only available to UNSW current students and recent graduates.

Do I have to attend every session throughout the week?

Absolutely not, you are welcome to attend as many sessions as are convenient for you. 

While this event is focused on the Science sectors, all UNSW students and recent UNSW graduates are welcome to join irrespective of academic discipline. 

This engagement opportunity may not be suitable for an MBA student, please refer to the AGSM Career Development Centre for MBA-relevant opportunities.
