Participate in industry events

AUT welcomes employers to get involved in industry events across the year. It’s free to register for AUT’s industry events, which include career fairs, speaker series graduate presentations and our flagship event Employability Matters.

Employability Matters event series

Offered each semester, this week-long event series brings industry onto campus for presentations, workshops and panel discussions.

The series attracts thousands of students looking for graduate roles, internships and voluntary positions.

Get involved through

  • Guest speaking spots

2019 dates

  • Semester 1: Monday 6 – Friday 10 May 2019

Career fairs

As an exhibitor or booth holder at a career fair, you can meet and observe hundreds of potential employees at one time. This is an excellent way for you as an employer to tap into student talent.

Promote your organisation at a career fair on campus
