Career Fairs and iEngage Events

UniSC provides a range of opportunities to connect you with employers in your industry. Learn directly from employers what they are looking for in applications, the types of opportunities they have available, and the pitfalls to avoid. Sometimes they even have jobs available for current students or students in their final year of study.

These events can run across the year, however many of the Career Fairs tend to be in Semester 1. The best strategy is to explore the list of events in Student Hub at the beginning of each semester to ensure you don't miss out.
