Go from the classroom to the boardroom with our bi-annual fair!  It’s a chance for you to network with employers, find out about graduate programs, internships and volunteering opportunities, and in some cases, start a career!

Set aside some time for the 2016 Semester 2 Careers Fair to meet with leading corporations,  non-profits, start-ups, professional membership societies, and SMEs from right here in our North Ryde community and beyond.  Some will be actively recruiting for full-time roles, graduate programs, internships, or volunteering opportunities.  Others will be spreading brand awareness about their organization for future recruitment.

In addition to the fair their will be two other events running on the day:

Learning from the Research Community – Part 2

Macquarie’s Strategic Research Framework for 2015-2024 (World-Leading Research; World-Changing Impact) aims to increase the productivity and competitiveness of Macquarie’s Higher Degree Research Candidates (HRDs) and Early Career Researchers (ECRs).

At the Early Career Researcher Conference in the Faculty of Human Sciences in October last year, various researchers gathered to share their success stories and career advice. In the second part of this series, Lilia Mantai (PhD candidate, School of Education) shares some key lessons learned from this day.
