New Zealand Employer

You need a job, and the STEM industry needs you. Win, win! 

Remember, you are the future of the workforce, and employers can’t wait to meet you! Over the course of two days, you’ll have the chance to translate your knowledge into practice as you meet with recruiters from industry-leading firms and connect with experts in the field. You might find an internship or role you love at a company you wouldn’t normally associate with your degree, so do your research on these organisations and come with an open mind.

Which employers are attending the event?

Check out which employers will be on campus and the groups they are interested in talking to. Taking the time to research the organisations will impress their representatives on the day!
