FAQ

Do I have to be online for the whole day?

 

No​, you can come to any session you like throughout the day. 

Can I bring a friend?

 

No, only students who have registered can attend. You will have received a unique login link to access the event platform; this can only be used on one device at a time. 

Will the sessions be recorded?

 

The Alumni Panel, Employer Showcases and Keynote Presentation will be recorded so that students can watch it again throughout the day.

What do I do in a session?

 

During a video session (keynote presentation and panel), simply watch as if you are watching TV at home. You can comment in the chat box to interact with other students watching. 

During an interactive session (employer booths), you can ask the employers questions both via the chat box or on screen with your camera. Refer to the platform support page for detailed instructions on how to do this. 

Do I have to have my camera on?

 

It is recommended to turn your camera on to get the most out of your interactions, however, it is not compulsory. When you join a session, you'll automatically join as a viewer in the audience. You will only pop up on screen with your camera on if the employer allows and you have accepted their invitation to do so. 

Can I talk to an employer privately?

 

Some employers may set up scheduled private chats with students, but if they don't, please do not private message or video call employers without their permission. 

Can I contact the employers after the event?

If you would like to stay in contact with an employer, please ask for their details privately. The university will not be able to provide students with a list of names and contact details due to privacy reasons.

Can I chat to other students?

 

Yes, you can private message, video call or create group rooms with other students in the Virtual Lobby of the platform. Refer to the platform support page for more detailed instructions on how to do so. 

What should I wear?

 

If you are intending to speak to employers with your camera on, we encourage you to wear smart casual or business attire (no t-shirts, singlets or hoodies). 

ONLINE ETIQUETTE AND CONDUCT

Respect at the University

 

Whether you're a student, member of staff, visitor, on campus or online, we are all responsible for personal behaviour of the highest standard and have the right to expect the same from others. 

We are all part of a community working to create a safe and welcoming environment for everyone. Our community embraces diversity, which means always treating everyone equitably, fairly, and with respect. 

Everyone has a right to feel safe and supported, be valued for who you are and have political or religious views that are different to others.

Students are responsible for

 

  • Treating everyone equitably and fairly

  • Adhering to the Student Conduct Policy

  • Understanding and modelling the Student Charter

  • Knowing when no is the answer: respecting each other's boundaries and consent decisions.

Video room etiquette

 

  • Don't interrupt employers in the middle of a presentation. You can raise your hand to request to join the screen, but expect to wait until the employer has finished their presentation first before allowing you on screen. 

  • The Careers Fair is an opportunity for you to learn more about each employer and their recruitment process. Keep your questions relevant.

  • Be conscious of how many students are waiting to speak to an employer. Ask a few questions at a time and come back later if you have more questions.

  • Do not initiate private video calls with employers unless they have given you permission to do so and scheduled a time with you. 

  • Be respectful of the employers and other students attending the Careers Fair. Students may be removed from the session, or the event entirely, if they do not behave in a respectful manner.
