Engagement activities for employers

ANU Careers offers a wide range of services to assist employers in the promotion of employment opportunities exclusive to ANU students. The ANU has seven academic colleges that house a number of schools and research centres that specialise in a range of disciplines - some unique in Australia and the  region. For specific information on the study programs offered by the ANU please visit The Programs and Courses page.

Our industry partners include  public, private, and not-for-profit sectors. We are always interested  to work with you to come up with creative ways to meet the needs of your organisation and can  tailor strategies or explore new and innovative ways for you to engage with our students.  Our most consistent and  effective options include:

  • Employer Visit Presentation: An opportunity to present directly about your graduate program or opportunity to ANU students in-person or virtually. Focus is on communicating relevant information on the application process, learning and development during the program, recent graduate stories and understanding organisational culture.  ANU Careers works hard for each employer to ensure the best possible audience attendance and outcome.  Our peak Employer Visits Program takes place in late Feb, March and April each year but we welcome sessions throughout the year. This is great way to get your brand and organisation in front of ANU students at all year levels.
  • A Day in the Life Presentation: Do you currently have an ANU graduate's working with you? Feedback from students is that they really value first-hand peer to peer experience. ot ask them to  be part of an information session and describe what a day in their professional life involves. This can help get students excited about working in your organisation by hearing from someone they can relate too. This also a great time to talk about what your graduates did to stand out, what extra- curricular activities, casual work or volunteering they were involved in, and how they made sure this transferable action was translated to the workplace.
  • Interactive Sessions:  Give students the chance  to try real world professional tasks is a  great way to get students excited about their future prospects with you. We can also introduce you to colleges to discuss curriculum based industry projects and internships.

It allows you to showcase your organisations values and culture which helps students make informed choices and put energy behind an application to you.

Key dates

Timing is everything and we know that engaging with students will require some preparation. It's good to be informed about when ANU students are in session, have exams or are on semester break so that you can plan your engagement with them in line with their studies.
