Employer presentations and workshops

Visit us on campus to get up close and personal with targeted students.

You can showcase your organisation, graduate or internship programs, recruitment process, culture, training or career development opportunities as part of an employer presentation. Presentations are for one hour and can be held from week four to eleven of each session.  The cost is $200.

You could also give a workshop instead involving an interactive discussion on an employable skill such as resume writing, assessment centres, personal branding, or you can share some insight into your industry for students.  Workshops are free of charge and also held for an hour on campus.

Registrations for employer presentations and workshops are now open on CareerHub.

Email careers@mq.edu.au for more information on these options.
