Bond University to host top-tier firms at Careers Fair

Bond University will host their annual Careers Fair on Thursday March 15 attracting top tier firms including Apple, Ernst & Young, IBM and Lend Lease.

With the graduate recruitment season well underway, employers will have the opportunity to meet with students while gaining an insight into the career development structure Bond provides.

Acting General Manager of Bond University’s Career Development Centre (CDC) Amy Ezzy, explains the Careers Fair is in turn an opportunity for students to take advantage of the industry links developed by the CDC.

“It can become quite competitive with our top students fielding offers from several high-level employers as a result of the Careers Fair and other opportunities arranged by the Career Development Centre,” she said.

As for students experiencing the recruitment process for the first time, Amy’s advice is simple: prepare and network.

“It’s essential to start your research early. This means you need to start identifying employers of choice and know what activities they are doing in order to recruit their graduates,” explains Amy,

“You need to find out exactly what the recruitment process is and what the company is looking for in a successful applicant,” she said.

Amy suggests developing a spreadsheet detailing important dates and interactions. The networking formula, she explains, is also relatively simple – practise makes perfect.

“Networking can happen in any place at any time and it is important that students recognise these opportunities and develop a 30 second elevator pitch,” said Amy.

In addition to organising the Careers Fair and other career development events, the CDC offers students, staff and alumni services to assist with short-term and long-term career goals.
