Connect with Employers and Industry
Make valuable connections with industry by engaging with employers and building your network.
With a range of events and programs available, you can always find new ways to connect with industry and find the pathway to your future.
Employer and industry events
As a student and graduate you have many opportunities to meet employers, recruiters and industry connections on campus, off-campus and virtually. We host industry and recruiters frequently throughout the year and upcoming events can be found on CareerHub.
Careers Expo is an annual event held in March that brings employers and industry to Bonython Hall across two days. Day 1 focuses on STEM and Day 2 on Business, Health, Humanities, Arts and Teaching.
Information on Careers Expo is available in the months ahead of the event and students can sign up to receive notifications and information on which companies will attend and how to prepare.
Grow Your Career Week
Grow Your Career Week (GYCW) is held annually in August and is designed to help University of Adelaide students build career confidence, increase employability and learn from leading experts about topics that will help grow your career.
Information on guest speakers, panellists and activities will be available in July each year. Resources from past events can be found on CareerHub or through the button below.
If you're wanting specific advice and guidance on your career pathway from an industry expert you can join our structured mentoring program.
Through mentoring you will be matched with an professional from your chosen industry and have the chance to develop real insights into the areas you're interested in, build career confidence and practice your networking skills.
Student society events
There are many student societies and clubs at the University of Adelaide and many run their own career and industry related events for students. Most societies and clubs share details of their career-related events through CareerHub and social media.
If you are not familiar with what is available please visit the AUU Clubs website or ask your faculty.
If you are a member of a society and club and have an upcoming career-related event you'd like to advertise on CareerHub, or want to run your own event, please email the details through to email@example.com.
Changes to Employer Events
Career Services and our Employer network have gone fully digital with our workshops and events for now and we remain committed to supporting you during this time.
To prioritise your safety and wellbeing, our workshops and events with recruiters and industry contacts are delivered via Zoom. Depending on the topic, your Zoom will be interactive either via webinar chat, Q&A or small-group interaction and breakout sessions within the virtual platform.
We thank you for your understanding as some events change or are postponed during the transition phase to virtual delivery but strongly encourage you to book in and get virtual face-time with our employer network.
