Meet employers in person and explore your career!

What is the Careers Expo?

The Careers Expo is an event where employers hold stalls with information on graduate, intern and employment opportunities. The Expo is a chance to meet employers in person, ask questions about career pathways, network, and research your career options.

How do I prepare for the Expo?

Attend a preparation seminar

We will be running preparation seminars leading up to the Expo. The seminars will provide you with tips on how best to present yourself when meeting employers, networking tips and more! If you're serious about putting your best foot forward at the Expo, make sure you register to attend one of the two seminars on the following dates:

Monday, 2 March 2020

Wednesday, 4 March 2020

Do your research

Before the Expo, research the employers attending to find out which employers suit your interests and your industry. A list of participating organisations will be released soon.

Dress the part

Making an excellent first impression is essential! Although most graduate employers don’t expect you to wear full business attire to the Expo, it is vital that you dress neatly and wear appropriate clothing.

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 Expo, 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.

How do I get to the Expo?

The Careers Expo will be held at the Hordern Pavilion (Royal Hall of Industries), 1 Driver Avenue, Moore Park. Due to a major event in the precinct, there is no access via Driver Avenue, Moore Park. Please access the Careers Expo via Errol Flynn Boulevard, Moore Park.

Public Transport: Plan your trip at https://transportnsw.info. Catch a free shuttle bus from UNSW Gate 8 (High Street), that will drop you off directly outside the venue on Errol Flynn Boulevard between 11.30am and 4.30pm. Regular frequent bus services are also available, or hop aboard the new Sydney Light Rail to the Moore Park Stop, then it’s a short walk to this event.

Driving: Parking is available at the Hordern Pavilion, access is via Errol Flynn Boulevard, Moore Park. A 2 minute drop off point is also located on Errol Flynn Boulevard. Please check the website for parking fees.

I can't attend on that day. Will the Expo be held on another day?

The Careers Expo is held twice a year. If you can't make it on the day, there are plenty of other opportunities to network with employers across the year including our on-campus Mid-year Careers Expo, held in T2 of 2020.

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

The Expo is only available to UNSW current students and recent graduates.

If you are from a regional University that does not run a Careers Expo and would like to attend, please contact us.

Do I have to attend the Expo for the whole day?

Absolutely not, students are welcome to join the Expo for as long or as little as they like and are welcome to attend both sessions if they choose.
