Who are the organisations that will be attending the expo

It is important to research the organisations that are attending the expo beforehand. This will provide you background information of who they are, graduates they are recruiting, and the opening and closing dates for applications. 

The Technology Careers Expo website will automatically update as organisations confirm their attendance – so keep checking!

Can I attend the Technology Careers Expo 2017?

All current Western Sydney University students studying any area of IT, Communications, Engineering and Design are strongly encouraged to attend. We also encourage students outside of these disciplines to attend if they are interested in moving into this field.

What can I expect on the night?

The Technology Careers Expo is an opportunity for you to meet with future employers and professional associations to help you build a successful career and gather the information that you require to make informed decisions about your next steps.

What should I wear?

All attendees should be in business attire, or smart casual attire. Remember some of these exhibiting organisations are looking for students to potentially hire. Attend the event dressed appropriate to ensure you project a positive image.

How do I prepare for the Expo?

Top 4 tips: 

  • Plan some questions beforehand and remember, this is a NETWORKING opportunity 
  • Plan your time at the expo – allocate enough time to speak with relevant organisations 
  • Dress appropriately 
  • Display great communication skills: eye contact, firm handshake, attentive listening skills, don't forget to smile, remember the other person's name/s and note contact details for follow up.

What happens if I can't attend on the night?

The Technology Careers Expo is only held on the one date. Western Sydney University Careers usually collect left over material which you could pick up. You can pick them up from either our Penrith or Parramatta Office.

Penrith: P.G.60-71
Parramatta: EA.1.32 

Although this is not as helpful as speaking to employers themselves, we may have materials with some information that could assist you.
