How we work with employers
UC Careers makes it easy to recruit some of New Zealand's top recent and future graduates for internships, research, work-integrated learning and project work, and voluntary and paid employment.
If you are offering an internship or summer work, please complete the form and we will be in touch soon.
We can help with every step of the recruitment process from advertising a vacancy or opportunity and conducting interviews.
Our annual fairs are an excellent way of raising your organisation’s profile with future graduates and to engage with current students for internship and summer work placements. During the academic year, we host a series of careers fairs including the Business and Arts Careers Fairs, Law Recruitment Evening, STEM Careers Fair and the Volunteering Expo. Find out how Careers Fairs work.
Ensure your target students are well informed about your organisation by holding a presentation here on campus. We recommend presenting to our students about your final year/graduate recruitment, summer vacation, internship opportunities and scholarships. Our students appreciate the value of face to face engagement with employers. We do not charge for these sessions and because they are very popular we recommend getting in early to secure a date.
We are happy to advertise your on-site events, please contact the Employment Coordinator for more information.
Benefits of engaging with students on campus

Ways to engage with our students
Sponsored targeted emails to students/graduates
Increase your chances of reaching your target audience to promote your on-campus event or employment opportunities by emailing relevant students by subject and level of study. You are welcome to include colour graphics and photographs. We recommend less than 200 words of text.
We do charge a fee for this service, starting from $90.00+GST. Please contact the employment coordinator for a quotation.
Here at UC we do not charge for the venue, the use of audio visual equipment and promotion to student clubs and societies. We also do not charge for promotion on the UC CareerHub and main UC Events pages.
Our only fee is for the targeted emails to students inviting them to attend your event. Please contact the Employment Coordinator for a quotation.
Based in the UC Careers office, students are able to meet with your company’s representatives on an informal basis. This can be over the lunch hour or at a time to suit you.
Make the most of our outdoor area to meet with students and share information about your recruitment opportunities.
Based in the student hub – The Undercroft Seminar Room – bring along your staff and some pizzas for a chance to network with students. Let them know more about your organisation and the opportunities you offer over a slice of pizza.
Meet and greet functions
We provide the opportunity to hold a more structured presentation directly to students. You provide the guest speakers, PowerPoint presentations and perhaps a Q&A session followed by a networking opportunity. We provide you with the venue, equipment and assist with promotion.
Annually we hold the following careers fairs across the academic year – Law, Commerce, Engineering and Science, Education and ICT, our fairs have the reputation of being New Zealand’s best university fairs, come along to see why.
All employer presentations are advertised on the UC CareerHub Events page (only students and graduates can view this page).
