Monash Careers Summit & Career Expo

The Monash Careers Summit is designed to allow students to explore ways of working, developing employability and career planning, and features workshops, seminars and speaker panels bringing students and industry together in an interactive, virtual environment. Featuring sessions tailored to the specific needs of both domestic and international students, the focus of the Summit will be on careers, career development, graduate employability and graduate recruitment.

 

The cornerstone of the Summit will be the Monash Careers Expo on August 5 and 6.

Now in its tenth year, this key Monash event attracts a prestigious selection of local and international exhibitors from a range of industries and sectors, and is a trusted and valuable opportunity for students to explore their career options and potential. And in 2020, it will run as a completely virtual event, providing students with even greater flexibility and ease of access to prospective employers.

More details about the event will be made available in the coming weeks. In the meantime, mark August 3-14 in your calendars, and we hope you can join us in making the Summit a success.
