Come and visit our Zoom Zone

This year you'll find not one, but two virtual booths at our expo. Due to current COVID travel restrictions both Jane Street and Susquehanna International Group (SIG) will be dialling in via Zoom and ready to have virtual chats with you. 

Check out the image below for how the booths will be setup. Just like having them here in-person, you can take a seat and have a chat where you can ask them all your burning questions - or you can also jump on and talk to them from your own device (if it’s busy at the booth). There will also be a CDES representative at the booth who will be there to greet you and make sure all the technology is running smoothly. Why not do some research about both companies before you come along as well, and get some questions prepared in advance. 

Don't forget, our team are here to help prepare you for the world of work. Whether you're heading into full-time employment or want support applying for part-time roles while you study, our range of bespoke services are here to support you wherver you're at on your journey to employability. 

Check out our world renowned career management platforms, MyCDES and MyCDES+ for heaps of self-service tools and resources, book into one of our workshops or come and see us on level 1 of the Kate Edger Building (opposite ANZ) Monday - Friday between 8.30am - 4.30pm.
