The 2020 Careers Fair and Employer Panel has changed format and will now be online.

The Virtual Careers Fair will be hosted from 8 am to 5 pm (AEST). During this window, you can jump online anytime you are available or when an employer you wish to speak with is online.

To access the Virtual Careers Fair follow this Zoom Link.

This is your opportunity to interact with employers, hear about employment opportunities and current recruitment campaigns. There is also the opportunity for Q&A.
