Careers and Employability Annual Careers Fair

Annual Careers Fair

The JCU Careers Fairs are over for another year.  We hope you made the most of the Fairs and made lots of new contacts, gained information and ideas for your career.

What should you do next?

  • Follow your favourite employers on Linkedin and Facebook.
  • Research their websites to see what skills, attributes and experience they are looking for.
  • Update your Linkedin profile as employers may search for you - the Careers and Employability Team can help with this.
  • Update your Preferences on CareerHub - this will help ensure you get a relevant list of opportunities in the weekly e-newsletter.
  • Research jobs on CareerHub regularly - you will gain a good understanding of application processes even if you are not ready to apply for graduate roles.
  • Consider joining a Professional Association for your industry - ask your Lecturers for suggestions
  • Follow JCU Careers on Facebook - we regularly post job ideas and application tips
