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 Virtual Careers Expo will be held online using the VFairs platform. Registration is essential! 

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 larger Careers Expo, held in March T1 of 2021.

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.
