Employers wishing to register for Employer Connect 2020, please contact the Careers team.
Employer Connect is an opportunity for students to connect with employers and hear about opportunities in your chosen industry or field. Gain valuable contacts, ideas, internship and job leads.
Even though some organisations recruit students and graduates from specific discipline areas, many consider students from a range of backgrounds and place more emphasis on skills. In other words, there may be opportunities for you with employers that you might not initially think of. Consider, for example, that a Design student may have developed unique problem-solving skills through studies and work, and that this can give them an edge over other candidates in a business context. Similarly, an employer may be interested in meeting Science students, who have developed a solid methodical approach when taking on challenges. A PR student may find a good fit in the Marketing stream of a professional services firm that emphasises strong analytical abilities and communication skills to manage accounts or products and linking internal and external agents.
So, consider the transferability of your skills and experience!
If you're not sure what employers look for, do some research into the organisations that will be present at Employer Connect, and have a chat with their representatives.
