Learn to network and meet employers
Throughout the year, we host and promote careers fairs, expos and other industry networking events on myMurdoch Career both in person and online. These events provide valuable opportunities to meet employer representatives. You can find out how they recruit and what they look for, to help you tailor your application to suit.
These events also allow employers to find out more about you. Employer representatives will be looking to see if you would make a good ambassador for their organisation, so you need to do some research and prepare some questions to make a good first impression!
The Murdoch Industry Mentoring (MIM) program is another way to increase your industry knowledge and develop your professional network. It provides a mentorship relationship with a professional in a field of interest, enabling you to gain industry insights and better prepare for the transition into the workplace.
