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 careers@adelaide.edu.au

Changes to Employer Events

Career Services and our Employer network are hosting a combination of digital and campus based events. Many employer events will be 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 look forward to offering more campus based events in the future. All event locations and online links are listed on the CareerHub platform.

We thank you for your understanding as some events change over time and strongly encourage you to book in and get virtual or campus face-time with our employer network.
