GradConnection Careers Fairs 2011

Posted by Daniel Purchas

So Careers Fairs kicked off for the 2011 recruitment season starting with Macquarie University yesterday. We thought we'd let you guys know what careers fairs we were attending this year so you can know where we are and come say hi if we're at the same fair and reserve yourself one of the GradConnection 3.0 T-Shirts that showed up at the office yesterday as well

I know this is going to be a very long season for a lot of the recruiters out there spanning close to 7 weeks in length, hope you hang in there if you're heading to a lot of fairs.


We have a couple of highlights in the calendar, we usually decide on where to attend based of the previous years fairs that we attended and of course the schedule plays a massive part of where we can actually feasibly get to around the country.

The Big Meet(s)

Again this year we are heading to all three of The Big Meets in Sydney, Perth and Melbourne. Last year these were the three most hectic careers fairs that we attended in each state. It sounds like this year that there is an employer R&R room located at each fair in case you need to take a bit of a break after speaking to potentially thousands of students.

Curtin WASM

This year some of the GC team are heading out to Kalgoorlie to attend the Curtin Western Australian School of Mines campus careers fair. We've had an increase in the number of companies listing on our site from the mining sector so thought it would be a good way to learn more about this industry sector by heading out to Kalgoorlie.

The GC T Version 3

We've got a new T-Shirt design this year so let us know in advance if you'd like one, we have around 100 to give out so get in quick to make sure we can save you one in the right size, we're open to trading if you have some spare promo shirts of your own! So that is us for the next month, will no doubt be catching up with a lot of you over the next few weeks, so you out there
