The UNSW Careers Expo will take place in-person in March 2021 subject to government regulations. Depending on implications surrounding the current pandemic at the time, a decision will be made as to whether the Careers Expo is run via a virtual platform. Watch this space for updates closer to the event.

What is the Careers Expo?

The UNSW 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, ask questions about career pathways, network, and research your career options.

Whether you are a first or a final year, the Careers Expo is the perfect place to explore your career.

Please note the UNSW Careers Expo is only for UNSW students and recent UNSW graduates.

Don’t forget to clean up your LinkedIn profile using this LinkedIn Guide so you can connect with the employers after the event.

Do your research

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

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?

Details will be provided closer to the event.

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

The UNSW 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 mid-year Careers Expo, usually held in June.

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, you are welcome to join the Expo for as long or as little as they like.

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