2017 CDES Internship and Summer Work Expo Event as iCalendar

03 August 2017

10:30am - 2:30pm

Venue: Level 0 foyer, Owen G Glenn Building

Location: 12 Grafton Road

For students from ALL faculties.

The CDES Internship and Summer Work Career Expo is new and improved for 2017! Originally two stand alone events, this year we’ve combined them to maximise the amount of organisations on campus in one go, and to allow you to search for a variety of different work options. Attended by 36 organisations across both inaugural events in 2016, this expo is one of the biggest on our calendar. Whatever faculty you’re from, and whether you are in your first or final year, employers want to talk to you. See below for organisations already registered:

Countdown Optiver Air Liquide New Zealand
New Zealand Defence Force The Treasury Harrison Grierson
Auckland Council IMC Cook Costello

  • This is your annual opportunity to speak face-to-face with potential future employers
  • Find out about a range of internship and summer work opportunities and get top tips and advice for successful applications
  • Stand out from the crowd and get noticed by your favourite employers
  • We will be running additional activities at the expo to help you make a lasting impression (for the right reasons). See “At the Expo” below for more info

As well as showcasing multiple organisations, there are also activities at the expo to help guide you on your journey to employability.
