Launch Your Career in Commerce and Technology is a virtual event where employers hold virtual stalls with information on graduate, intern, and employment opportunities.
This is an excellent opportunity to meet employers, ask questions in 1:1 or group chats, engage with employers via video and stand out for employment opportunities.
It's also a great way to network and research your career options across the Commerce and Technology sectors. Whether you are a first or a final year, this event is the perfect place to launch your career!

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 event, research the employers attending to find out which employers suit your interests and your industry.
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.
If you can't make it on the day, 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 and Industry Connections Series.
