We want everyone to feel safe using our services. All staff, students and visitors are expected to wear face masks on campus wherever physical distancing is difficult to maintain. If in doubt, please wear a mask. Refer to the University's guidelines for any questions.

Employer workshops and recruitment events

Every semester we host employers who are keen to employ University of Auckland students in internships or graduate roles. Check out the full list of employers who want to meet you on our recruitment events webpage.

Career Expos and CDES events

We run a number of large career expos and employability events, such as our Get Recruitment Ready series, throughout the year. Find out when they're happening and how to get involved on our events webpage.

Services for students at Orange

At the current orange traffic light setting, we are offering virtual and in-person services. Please see below for detailed information on how to access these.

We want you to feel safe using our services. All staff, students and visitors are expected to wear face masks on campus wherever physical distancing is difficult to maintain. 

One-on-one appointments

These are bookable online and can be held via Zoom or in person. If you want to discuss a confidential matter, you may prefer to book a virtual appointment, as in-person appointments will be held in open spaces to keep you safe. There is no change to how you book these, and all additional info is listed in MyCDES.

Daily drop in

This is available each day. We are currently operating virtual drop ins only. Please see the schedule at the top of this webpage. There is no need to book, you literally just drop into our Zoom room. Our Career Development and Employability Consultants will review your CV and cover letter, right then and there.

Did you know: CVs and cover letters can also be submitted for review online. Submit your CVs via the CV360 tool in MyCDES+. Submit your cover letters for review via the online check in MyCDES.


Our Workshop schedule is published every week on our Facebook and Instagram page, and you’ll also find them listed on MyCDES as either ‘On-campus’ or ‘Online’. Please register online, or via Zoom link in the workshop description.

Career Chats

CDES recognises how much screen time is required for your studies, so we’ve re-introduced our 30 minute career chats, on selected topics, which will supplement our workshops. These chats, hosted by graduate employers and Career Development and Employability Consultants, will provide you with key tips and the opportunity to have your questions answered live. Check out MyCDES for information and to register.

MyCDES+ online resources

There are lots of great topics in our online library of career resources, MyCDES+, to help you get ready for the world of work. These are available 24/7.

Employer events

We are working with employers to ensure they can engage with you virtually or in person (when possible). Make sure you check individual event descriptions for further details and register for all events you want to attend.
