UQ Careers Fair

20 March 2019


UQ Centre (Building 27)

The Careers Fair brings together UQ students and major employers from across the country.

Students are invited to attend the Fair to meet employers, each of whom will have their own booth and display area. For UQ students, the event offers a unique opportunity to meet face-to-face with leading employers from government and private industry.

The Careers Fair enables students to explore their career opportunities and obtain specific information about individual companies. In addition, a number of participants will be giving away useful information on finding employment, preparing resumes and performing well at job interviews.


How to prepare

If you want to make a good impression on an employer you should consider the following

Act the part

Before you attend you should dress in the appropriate attire including footwear and bags.

When you are at the event introduce yourself and use positive body language. Stand tall, firm handshake, good eye contact, be yourself and smile!


Find out which employers will be attending the event and do some research on the organisation and their industry.

From this research, you should then create a list of questions you can ask employers to demonstrate your interest.

Find participating employers

Come along to Careers Fair and you could win great prizes from featured employers.
Door prizes include gift packs, networking site visits, vouchers, and much more! T&Cs apply.

Graduate stories

The one experience with a company that really stuck with me was talking to the graduate talent team for the Suncorp Group at UQ Careers Fair.

One year ago I had no idea what a Business Analyst was. Now, Suncorp has set me up to grow and lead the way in my field.
I moved to Perth to begin my career in the oil and gas industry with Woodside as part of their 2016 Graduate Program intake.

I’ve had the opportunity to be involved in really interesting projects, including being involved in the real-time execution of two drilling campaigns.
I always yearned to work somewhere where I could apply my problem-solving skills to something that matters. Worley Parsons has provided me with this opportunity.

In the short time I have worked at Worley Parson, I have already worked on two large Australian projects.
