Employer Information Sessions

Organisations are invited to hold employer information sessions on campus during the academic year to promote graduate and vacation employment opportunities.

Your employer information session will be advertised to students through CareerHub and an announcement will be placed on Blackboard. The Careers Service also recommends that you consider linking the advertising of your Information Session with a targeted email, direct mail out or online banner. For more advertising options please click here.

When can employer information sessions be held?

Employer information sessions can be booked during the academic year (excluding semester recess and the examination period).

The common lunch break times are:

Callaghan: Tuesday 12.00pm – 1.00pm

Ourimbah: Wednesday 12:00pm – 1:00pm

You can  also hold information sesions outside of these time/days- when booking online please specify your preferred date and time.

We are unable to guarantee student attendance and we suggest that you request students register to attend via CareerHub. This will allow you to get an idea of student numbers prior to your event.

Where can employer information sessions be held?

We will do our best to book a room that is in close proximity to the disciplines you are targeting. We can not guarantee a venue on the day that you request as room availability is tight.

What is the cost to hold an employer information session?

There is no booking charge for the use of the room, however we recommend that you purchase an online banner which will appear on CareerHub. For more advertising options please click here.

You may wish to provide students with refreshments. These can be ordered through UniFoods.

Please contact us if you would like us to arrange this on your behalf.
