Promote your brand

Use a targeted strategy to connect with and recruit students

Our marketing and promotion services will help raise your brand profile on campus. We offer targeted emails, hard copy mailouts, logo web displays and posters on campus.

Reach our students through mail, email, web displays and posters. To complement the options below and further promote a job opening with your organisation, don't forget to post a job ad free of charge, and book in for a careers fair. Attendance at a careers fair is a great way to meet engaged students and promote your organisation’s brand across campus.

How it works

Targeted emails will promote your recruitment drive to engaged students who have registered with the Careers Centre, indicating their job preferences and areas of interest.

You’ll select cohorts of students (for example, students in their final year who are interested in commerce) and we will send your email message, including links to your website, directly to them. Please include explicit selection criteria in the email text and provide contact details for enquiries.

Please make sure that you request your email at least one week before the date you wish to send it to students. Fill out the registration form and we will send the emails to our students within three days of receiving your signed payment form and email content.

Cost

This service costs $220* per cohort that you wish to target; the table below lists some popular cohorts. For example, if you wanted to target final-year commerce and engineering, the total cost would be $440. 

If you wanted to target penultimate (second-last) year and final-year science students and final-year health sciences students, the total cost would be $660.

Pricing for same email text for all cohorts

One cohort, eg, final-year engineering: $220
Two cohorts, eg, final-year business/economics: $440
Three cohorts, eg, postgraduate engineering/business/economics: $660
Four cohorts: $770
Five cohorts: $880
Six or more cohorts: please contact us.

Pricing for different email text

One cohort: $220
Two cohorts: $440
Three cohorts: $660
Four cohorts: $880
Five cohorts: $1100
Six or more cohorts: please contact us.

If a cohort is fewer than 150 students we’ll contact you before we go ahead with the targeted email. We recommend that you keep your cohorts broad (for example, final years in economics/commerce/business) so that you reach more students.

 

* A search fee will apply when a complex search is required, whether or not you choose to go ahead with the targeted email. We will contact you if your email request will require a search fee.

Promote your graduate recruitment deadlines and vacation work programs with our targeted mail-out service. Send us your brochures, invitations or letters, and we do the rest.

How it works

Targeted hard copy mail-outs can be linked to employer information sessions, careers fairs or used as a stand-alone service. You specify a student cohort based on faculty, major, year of study, or nationality, and we will conduct a search of our student database to find this audience. We then coordinate the dispatch of your materials direct to students.

Fill out the registration form, then prepare your material, including the Careers Centre disclaimer (see below), and send us your materials:

Courier Address: Careers Centre, Level 5, Jane Foss Russell Building, 160 City Road, The University of Sydney NSW 2006 
Postal Address: Careers Centre, Level 5, JFR Building G02, The University of Sydney NSW 2006

We will place your material in University-branded envelopes and mail the students on your behalf. The material will be sent within five working days of receiving your materials and registration form.

Disclaimer text included in the mail-out

We require the inclusion of the following disclaimer printed in your material or as an insert. Alternatively, we can print the disclaimer to be included with your material, at a cost of 65c per letter:

This information has been sent to you on our behalf by the University of Sydney Careers Centre without the disclosure of your name and address details. The provision of this information does not constitute an endorsement by the University of the merits of the organisation providing the information. The University is passing on information which the Careers Centre feels may assist you in your job search. You should make your own enquiries to verify any of the information given.

There is a mandatory search fee of $220 to provide the numbers of students and the cost for your mail-out. The search fee will apply whether or not you choose to go ahead with the targeted mail–out.

How it works

Promote your employer information session or recruitment event with posters placed in relevant, high-traffic areas of the University. Postering is a cost-effective way of increasing the visibility and promoting the brand of your organisation, especially for companies planning big events.

For $330 student ambassadors will strategically place up to 100 of your A4 posters (or for $440, A3-sized posters) around the University, in areas that are highly visible to students. These include faculty/school and public noticeboards, student dining and leisure areas, and lecture theatres.

To book

Fill out the registration form. We require the posters at least five days before your preferred postering date. Please mail them directly to us.
