National Diversity Virtual Careers Fair
20 August, 2020; 11 am – 2 pm

This year we’re collaborating with more than 20 universities across Australia, to host a joint virtual career fair to connect employers and students to discuss workplace initiatives that enhance inclusion. Given your organisations’ commitment to workplace diversity and inclusion, we’re pleased to invite you to exhibit at the fair.

Australia is fortunate to have an abundance of leadership driving the implementation of initiatives enhancing inclusion in the workplace. This National fair will provide organisations with the opportunity to discuss these programs and their employment opportunities directly with prospective employees. We invite organisations to present on key areas for this event:

  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples
  • Cultural and linguistic diversity
  • Disability and mental health
  • Gender
  • Sexuality, gender and sex
  • Veteran programs
  • Work and caring responsibilities
  • Flexible work arrangements
  • Other initiatives that align with an organisation’s diversity and inclusion strategy


Online Employer Sessions

Present an online employer information session right from the comfort of your home or office. We will set-up a webinar via Zoom for you to connect with the UQ community. This provides an opportunity for your organisation to run a recruitment style presentation, panel style discussion or teach students on a particular topic.

UOW STEM Virtual Careers Expo 2020

12 August 2020

UOW is going virtual for 2020! Instead of a physical stand, the UOW STEM Virtual Careers Expo will have a unique virtual video room for each employer. From there, you can interact online with our talented UOW students coming into their final years of study. The Expo is designed to promote vacation work opportunities and internships over summer for students in their penultimate year of study. In 2019, we had over 700 Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths students in attendance, and with location and travel no issue in 2020, we are set for even more to join in this event. It's a great opportunity for you to put your brand front and centre among future recruits looking to solidify their future. It's free! Register now!

Host a student

We are looking for organisations to host students to complete a virtual internship/work placement. This will let the students gain real workplace experience, also known as Work Integrated Learning (WIL), and Careers Central offers several WIL subjects. We take care of the details such as student insurance cover, guidance on how to prepare for hosting a student, as well as supporting you throughout the internship/project to ensure success.
