Applying for Vacation Work, but can’t make it to any of our events? Why don’t you give our webinar a go?!
On 6 August at 4PM you can join us online (from the comfort of your own home!) to hear all about Vacation Work!

We are hosting a Vacation Work Expo on Thursday 24 July, 1PM – 2:30PM. This is a must-attend event for first and second year Commerce and IT students!
So what exactly is vacation work? They are paid, professional work experience opportunities that large employers run over the summer holiday period. Getting into a vacation work program will almost guarantee you a full-time job with the firm after you graduate!
To get ahead of your competition, come along to the Expo for a chance to meet with the recruiters who screen applications!
Registrations are essential
Note: Business attire is strongly encouraged
A few more tips from the recruitment teams of some large organisation!
"Make sure you display your passion for the role you are applying for. Hint: Doing research to learn more about the firm, service line/department and position will help you do this! (Deloitte Graduate Recruiter Tip!)"
"To get the most out of the expo come along with some targeted questions about the companies and roles you’re interested in."
"We look for well-rounded candidates so make sure you highlight your extra-curricular involvement, interests and any work experience you’ve had in your application. Good luck with the process! Pitcher Partners"
