The annual Engineering and Science Careers Fair took place on Wednesday in the Undercroft. 800 students kept 61 different employers on site busy throughout the day. Employers came from throughout New Zealand and even Australia, eager to network with students and speak about internships, summer work and graduate programmes and positions coming up in their organisations. Over the next couple of weeks remember to follow up on conversations with employers and put yourself out there, you never know what opportunities could come about.
Next up is the Information and Communcation Technology (ICT) Careers Fair on Tuesday 31 July, 4pm – 6pm in the the Undercroft. Find out more>

Engineering and Science Careers Fair
Wednesday 9 May, 10.00am – 3.30pm
Undercroft, Puaka-James Hight
Whether you are seeking graduate employment, summer internships or nothing at all you can gain a lot from this event. The opportunity to get familiar with the professional lingo and how to act in a professional yet casual manner is invaluable.
It’s awesome walking around seeing your mates who have graduated and are now sharing their knowledge of the industry with you. I hope I can one day come back to UC and see my mates and try to inspire them into a career path that they may see as worthwhile.
One piece of advice from me would be not to limit yourself. Even though you may have a specialised in spomething or have a major, degrees are very versatile and who knows where you’ll end up.
Engineering and Science students, your chance to speak to a wide range of employers about your future career is coming up!
When: Wednesday 11 May, 10am – 3:30pm
Who will be there? Check out the list of organisations attending.
This event is a fantastic opportunity to meet and talk with employers face-to-face, ask questions and gather all the information you need for a career in Engineering or Science.
And this event is not just for third years – students at every level are welcome. Employers and students usually discuss part-time jobs and internship opportunities, as well as career paths.
