Ways we can help
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 a graduate programme, internship, scholarship or summer work, you can list your opportunities on the UC jobs board NZUni Talent.
We can help with every step of the recruitment process, from advertising a vacancy or opportunity and providing interview facilities.
Employers, community and industry can advertise jobs, internships and scholarships on NZUni Talent
Our annual fairs are an excellent way of raising your organisation’s profile with future graduates and engaging 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 Career fairs work here >
Ensure your target students are well informed about your organisation by holding a presentation; whether that is here on our beautiful campus, online or in-house. We recommend presenting to our students about your final year/graduate recruitment, summer vacation, internship opportunities and scholarships. Our students appreciate the value of engagement with employers. We do not charge for these sessions and as they are very popular we recommend getting in early to secure a date.
Please complete our online booking form and we will be in touch shortly.
Benefits of engaging with students on campus, online and on-site:
- Inform students about the employment opportunities you are offering
- Share current insights into what your organisation does and who your clients are
- Let students know what skills and key attributes you are looking for
- Explain your recruitment processes, important dates and what you look for in a CV and cover letter
