Industry Events

How Covid-19 impacts the Unitec Industry Events?

Acknowledging the importance of setting up a platform for industry to access Unitec talent  amidst the current Covid-19 challenge,  we are now offering the option of hosting online meetings/webinars, online Q & A, which we can set up on your behalf.  Connect Events can either be delivered virtually and in-person depending on the industry/discipline requirement. We can also host your organisation to deliver Virtual Recruitment Presentations or register your recruitment event dates so we can promote it to our graduates and students.

Connect Events 

Connect Events are now delivered both virtually (co-hosted with other ITPs) and in-person depending on the needs of the industry/discipline and our learners.  Promote your organisation either in person or online.   Grab this opportunity to meet, greet and learn about potential employees.

Target communications

This is a great way of promoting your graduate and internship programmes to drive additional traffic to your job listings via our Job Site or your own website.  They can also be used to promote other opportunities and events, or to remind students of approaching closing dates for graduate and internship programmes.

We can send your communications to your preferred group of students.  We are able to identify those students by discipline and year of study so please send us the subject heading, content, and your logo to ensure your messages and branding are consistent.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact our Industry Team on industry@unitec.ac.nz.
