Employer Information Sessions

NEW: Spotlight sessions

Connect with our students in a unique format

Pitch to potential recruits about your company's ideas on a range of topics, from future-proofing your business to leading the way on sustainability, and job opportunities to tackle those issues.

How it works:

  • Choose between one of the available topics or suggest a new one
  • Join two other employers for each session
  • Present your organisation and current opportunities, and network with potential candidates.

Position your organisation as a leader on issues our students really value,and  connect with a diverse talent pool. 

Registrations open

--

Publicise your organisation by holding an information session on campus or online. Students who attend are highly motivated, and the session provides an excellent opportunity to network with these students while providing detailed information about your company. Your presence at the University is advertised on the Careers Centre website, student event calendar and through faculty newsletters and social media.

Benefits

An employer information session:

  • provides detailed information about your organisation directly to students
  • generates interest in upcoming recruitment activities
  • provides you with the opportunity to meet highly motivated students
  • increases your organisation’s profile at the University.

Availability and booking

The Careers Centre only holds employer information sessions at set times throughout the semester. Past experience has demonstrated that presentations outside these times are not effective.

We offer information sessions from Monday to Thursday. We avoid holding information sessions on Fridays, as there tend to be less students on campus. Information sessions will not be run on the same day as a careers fair.

Daytime information sessions run between 12 and 1pm, or 1 and 2pm, and choice of venue is available.

The following options are available for 2023:

  • Place your logo with hotlink on the Graduate Recruitment webpage. This service is included in all Careers Fair Registrations           (Logo must be high resolution – JPEG)

Related services

Your presence at the University will be best supported in conjunction with other activities. If your information session relates to your graduate recruitment program or internship and vacation work opportunities, don't forget to:

  • advertise for free on CareerHub
  • send a targeted email out to the students you want to meet, reminding them about your information session
  • book in for a careers fair – attendance at a careers fair and information session is a great combination for meeting engaged students and raising your profile at the University.
