Are you thinking about going to the Curtin Careers Fair this Friday?
On campus for the first time since 2020, this year’s Fair will be energy-charged, busy and geared for informative fun. With more the 100 organisations attending, there are many reasons to attend – here’s our top picks:
Experience the Fair your way
The Curtin Careers Fair runs from 11am to 2pm, it’s free and the format is flexible – visit for 10 minutes, come and go several times, or stay for the full three hours, it’s up to you.
Take part in the Quiet 30
This is a dedicated time from 10:30am to 11am which provides a welcoming low sensory experience for Curtin students who have difficulties in busy, crowded environments.
Explore your graduate employment options
You could discover an employer or a career choice you hadn’t previously considered. After all, some government departments, or companies like BHP Billiton and EY, employ grads from a range of disciplines – not just those that seem to fit their core business.
Discover other opportunities
Whatever stage you’re at in your studies, the Careers Fair will provide you with the chance to find out more about vacation work and internships, part-time employment, work experience and volunteering.
Build your industry networks
This is a chance to meet industry reps and recent grads face-to-face, giving you the opportunity to make a great first impression. You can ask questions about the company culture, the opportunities available and specific job requirements.
Attend an employer presentation
During the Fair, there will be a range of employer presentations happening in the Presentation Zone. There’s no need to book ahead – just check out the schedule and the range of topics, then time your visit accordingly.
Get your career questions answered
The team from Curtin Careers will also be at the Fair to offer you a quick Career Health Check and to answer any career related questions you might have. Stop by our booth and say hi!
Win a prize!
As if you needed any other reason to attend, there will also be some amazing prizes up for grabs, including Beats Wireless Headphones, an iPad or a Microsoft Surface Laptop.
So, whether you’re still exploring what you want to do with your degree or have a definite career plan mapped out, the Curtin Careers Fair is worth a visit.
