Event format

Recruitment events commonly follow the format of a one-hour presentation, with the option to follow up with a one-hour networking session directly afterwards.

Below are our common formats, however, we’re adaptable and are more than happy to discuss times, dates and structure with you:

  • 5–6pm: Recruitment event – no networking
  • 6-8pm: Recruitment event with networking
  • 8am–9.30am: Subject to availability, recruitment event with breakfast networking

The content of the presentation is up to you, but can include videos, talks from University of Auckland students or alumni, Q&As, competitions, mock interview scenarios, student participation activities and more.

What's included in your registration

  • Venue hire (a lecture theatre for the presentation and a foyer area for networking)
  • Online promotion of the event including website listing and social media post
  • A target email to promote your event to your chosen group of students, including information about your organisation, current vacancies or graduate programmes
  • Management of event bookings through our online careers portal
  • On-site support from an Employer Engagement team member
  • Post-event report showing attendance data

Catering options

If you include a networking session with your event, you can choose to have this catered by an approved campus supplier or arrange for pizza delivery.
Catering is not included in the recruitment event cost and is paid directly to the supplier, however we’ll put you in initial contact with your chosen supplier to discuss the right menu options for your event.

Pop up / custom events

The Employer Engagement team can work with you to facilitate custom events. These are a fun and affordable way to build presence and visibility, and are held in a busy spot on campus.
