Many career events are a great way for you to connect with potential employers. Not only that, when you're well prepared for engaging with an employer, you'll be more likely to stand out to them and to be remembered. Here are some tips on why it's important to participate in career events and what to think about before, during and after you do so.
You can access details of on-campus and on-line events via the 'Events' tab on Massey CareerHub.
You'll benefit most when you:
Before you participate, do your research. Will employers be attending? If so, which one(s)? Who are you most keen to engage with?
Update and print your CV so you can refer to it or provide it to an employer if the opportunity presents.
Think about the information you want to find out. If your engaging face-to-face or on camera, dress sensibly - ditch the jandals and singlet and wear something more smart casual. Prepare an introduction to make a good impression. It might sound something like this:
"Hi. I'm Neve Anderson, a final year BBus student majoring in Human Resources. I see from your website that you take on students from all disciplines. I would really like to know more about which areas of your organisation I could apply my studies."
