UNSW Career Leaders Program

UNSW Career Leaders Program

The Careers and Employment Career Leaders Program is an initiative to provide students with valuable skills and experience through assisting with the marketing and promotion of programs and events, including the biggest event of the year - the Careers Expo.

The Careers Expo brings together over a hundred employers and several thousand students to talk about graduate and internship employment opportunities.


Volunteer activities include marketing during Orientation Week and the first few weeks of semester in small groups, optional 'lecture bashing' (in which volunteers drop into lectures and make a short pitch) and expo event assistance.
