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.
