Our career expertise, industry knowledge and employer networks provide a tremendous benefit to students. Many faculties regularly invite us to present careers workshops to students at the faculty level. The Careers Centre and faculties have a significant influence over the employment outcomes of our students. Find out how we can work together to assist your students with their career needs and goals.
We have a range of modules to select from or alternatively can tailor a workshop or series of workshop modules to match your requirements. These modules are specifically designed to assist faculties to meet their Graduate Attributes policy obligations.

In addition to faculty based workshops, we offer a wide range of general workshops that are designed to address the ongoing career needs of our students whilst also reflecting current trends and changes in the market. These workshops will provide students with the key skills they need to be successful in their search for internships and graduate opportunities.
Please direct your students to Sydney CareerHub to see what workshops are available to them.
The Careers Centre presents a range of careers fairs for students to meet employers in their industry and find out about graduate and career opportunities.
Benefits of attending careers fairs:
- the single best way to meet a range of employers face-to-face
- offers students the opportunity to ask questions and build relationships
Employers come onto campus to meet our students, giving them the opportunity to get a head start in the competitive graduate and internship market.
In addition to the fairs we also have a wide range of employers coming onto campus to present to students in a more intimate setting. Information sessions are an ideal way for students to connect with employers.
Benefits of attending information sessions:
- employers share inside information about their organisation
- students have the opportunity to network with employer representatives
While this kind of opportunity is perfect for students who are currently looking for internships and graduate opportunities, employers are also on the lookout for future candidates so it is a smart way for students to start building their networks before they even apply.
