For our international students
There are many opportunities available from the range of employers attending the fair. For international students, it will be important to identify which employers will accept applications from international students.
Conduct research before the event, paying close attention to the eligibility criteria and whether the employer will recruit international students.
Make a list of the employers you will want to target at the fair – maximise your time by engaging with those employers that you can potentially submit applications to.
Use the ‘Filter by tags – international students’ on the day to ensure that you are accessing the right opportunities for you.
Ask thoughtful questions. Thorough research will ensure that you don’t need to ask employers if they accept applications from international students – you can gather this information in the lead up to the fair. Instead, use your time with employers to ask great questions about the opportunity, workplace culture, teams and divisions and global opportunities.

While the University's own Careers Fair may be your starting point, it's worth acknowledging that there is strong competition and strict eligibility criteria for the programs promoted - particularly if you are an international student. We encourage you to make the most of the fair, but to also look out for other opportunities to connect with employers and access a broad range of opportunities.
