How do I prepare for the Expo?

Make sure you attend our 'Impress at Employer Events' workshop.

#1 Avoid wet fish

Exude confidence by having a professional handshake. No one wants to shake hands with a wet fish, a finger tickler, hand crusher or someone with sweaty palms. Unless you are the President of the United States, stay away from the domineering, top handed, bone-crushing, never-ending handshake. You want to come across as a friendly and positive potential employee.


#2 
Suit up

First impressions count, and you want to be remembered for the right reasons (this means no t-shirts or shorts and bright yellow crocs are just right out).  Leave your floral gumboots at home and present yourself as an emerging professional, ready to network and meet potential future colleagues.


#3 Check out the line-up and sideshows

Like any music festival, finding out who’s headlining is critical. Who do you want to connect with, what key questions do you want to ask? You won’t have time to see every employer, and not all will be relevant to your future aspirations. By identifying who’s coming that might align to your career aspirations, you’ll be able to research them in advance and wow potential employers with your industry knowledge, intelligent questions, all while sounding like a seasoned pro with a well-developed sense of commercial awareness.

Keep an eye out for employer sideshows – graduate employers often make on-campus presentations after the Expo. These are a great chance to connect even further with organisations and continue to impress future employers.

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

Unfortunately, the Careers Expo is only held once 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 smaller, July Careers Expo in T2.

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 anytime between 12pm and 5pm.
