Other ways to build your brand and engage with students

Find out about other ways CDES can help build your brand such as pop-up events, speakers, industry partnerships, and on-campus interviews.

Aside from Careers Expos, Recruitment Events and direct recruiting, there are many other ways to build your brand and engage with students.

Pop up/custom events

The Employer Engagement team can work with you to facilitate custom events on campus. If you would like to organise a custom event, you can either register the details here or call Georgia Basagre, Employer Event Coordinator on g.basagre@auckland.ac.nz or 09 923 2924 to discuss your ideas.

Speakers at career events

As well as our large career expos, we also run a number of career events throughout the year. These are designed to support student career development and educate them about the world of work. We often look for speakers in various stages of their careers to speak on a specific topic and share their experiences and insights.

Themes of interest for events include:

  • How to find opportunities through recruitment agencies
  • Diversity – exploring themes of diversity and how your different experiences, perspectives and worldviews can be of benefit your future career
  • Self-employment, entrepreneurs and intrepreneurs
  • Where are they now? – previous University of Auckland graduates speaking about their career journey to date and the decisions they have made along the way

If you are interested in being a speaker at any of the above events or have an idea for an alternative theme, please contact Georgia Basagre, Employer Event Coordinator on g.basagre@auckland.ac.nz or 09 923 2924 to find out more.

"Spotlight On" industry events

We’re keen to facilitate future events that give students the chance to learn about other industries. If you represent a particular industry or belong to an industry organisation and would like to work with us to promote this industry to our students, get in touch with Georgia Basagre, Employer Event Coordinator on g.basagre@auckland.ac.nz or 09 923 2924 to find out how we can help.

Industry partnerships and career education

We have a number of industry partnerships that offer mutual benefit to our students and the participating organisations. Each partnership is different, but each offers something unique that empowers our students to boost their employability and really fast-track their future careers.

If your organisation is interested in working with us on a joint initiative and support the career education of our students, we would love to hear from you.

Please get in touch with Kate Coley, Employer Engagement Manager on k.coley@auckland.ac.nz to start a conversation.

On-campus interviews

If you’re interviewing a number of University of Auckland students and/or visiting from out of town, why not hold your interviews on campus?

We can offer interview facilities to accommodate various interview and assessment formats.
