We will have enthusiastic student volunteers available to assist you to set up and take down your displays, and to provide assistance throughout the day.
If you are the only representative from your organisation who will be attending, student volunteers can look after your display while you have lunch. Please advise the Careers team if you require this.
We want your feedback. We'll provide a Careers Fair Evaluation Form at the event so you can let the Careers and Employment team know how we can enhance your JCU Careers Fair experience next year.
Students at all levels are strongly encouraged to attend the Careers Fair.
Please be ready to provide information to a range of students – from first year students looking for career ideas, right through to final year and postgraduate students seeking application advice.
We encourage you to actively engage students in conversation to help them sharpen their networking skills.
Stand out from the crowd
Your visual display should give visitors a clear idea of what you do. Students will decide within seconds if they are going to stop at your display, so it’s worth trying to make a great first impression.
Who’s on your frontline?
Staffing a booth at the Careers Fair is not for everyone. The role requires a keen desire to engage with people and a high level of relevant organisational knowledge.
Your staff can be the difference between an ordinary Careers Fair and a highly successful and engaging Careers Fair!
Handouts and giveaways
The benefit of the Careers Fair can be long lasting if you have useful handouts or giveaways.
