Recruit a student or graduate: find AUT talent for your business

Are you looking for fresh talent for your business? We’ll connect you with AUT's highly skilled students and graduates, and boost your company’s profile on campus – for free.

Use our specialist recruitment service to recruit a student or graduate

AUT Internz is a personalised and free recruitment service for employers – we take the hard work out of the recruitment process by screening and shortlisting talent for your role. We'll create your job ad, promote it, receive applications, and interview students/graduates before giving you a shortlist of candidates.

  • New Zealand employers: we'll advertise your paid role to graduates and any students who have completed their first year of study
  • International employers: we'll advertise your internship role to third year students only, and they'll complete the internship in the year after their final year of study. We help cover the cost of their flights and visa by awarding an Internz International Scholarship.

Advertise a role on our job board for students and new graduates

It’s free to advertise on our high-traffic online job board, AUT CareerHub, and your ad will be seen by current AUT students as well as recent graduates. If your role is relevant to specific AUT programmes, we'll promote it via our popular social media channels, too.

You have control of the advertising and recruitment process when you use AUT CareerHub – you write the job ad and manage all applications yourself. Job opportunities should be career-building and offer value to the student (or graduate), like graduate roles and graduate programmes, work experience and internships.

Want to advertise a casual, part-time or summer role?

If you have a position to fill that isn't so much about career-building, you can list it on Student Job Search.

Take a current student on a study-related work placement

Most of our study programmes at AUT include workplace experience for students. Placements benefit the employer as much as the student – your organisation can get help on a project, and students get relevant work experience while gaining credit toward their study.

Placement lengths can vary from weeks to months, and during the placement you’ll need to give feedback on the student’s work. Contact our Employability Relationship Managers for more information.
