The 2024 Business and Law Expo is over. Thank you to everyone who attended!

This event will be back in 2025. In the meantime, check out one of our other events.

Why attend the expo?

"The speakers at the event were very helpful, informative and friendly. There were plenty of great companies to get to know and I was pleased overall with the info I gathered from the event."

The annual CDES Business and Law Career Expo is the perfect event for students interested in exploring professional services roles or careers in the business and legal sectors. Open to students from all majors and subject areas, the expo offers a valuable opportunity to connect with a diverse range of organisations.

Organisations attending the event typically include top law firms, the Big 4, financial and professional services firms, infrastructure and construction firms, and professional membership organisations. We also host other New Zealand companies (e.g. in the medical, agricultural and supply chain sectors) that are looking to attract students interested into the professional services areas of their business.

The expo provides a fantastic opportunity to explore a wide range of organisations offering internships and graduate roles. Attendees can connect with staff members and gain valuable insights into each organisation's opportunities and work environment, giving them a valuable head start in the professional world.

Prepare for the expo

Visit our ‘Attending a career expo’ webpage for tips on how to get the most out of this opportunity and make the best impression on prospective future employers.

We have prepared a detailed list of the employers attending, whether they are recruiting/which roles they are recruiting, and the faculties/majors they are recruiting from. You can use this to prepare for the expo and do your pre-event employer research.
