Careers Month

Every year AGSM Career Development Centre host an on campus recruitment period during September. We make it easy for you – just dress up and turn up! All top-tier and mid-tier consulting firms, a variety of boutique firms plus a wide range of companies from AGSM affiliate sectors are invited to campus to present an information session. Students from the MBA Full-time cohort as well as the current EMBA Stage 2, and MBAX (Specialistion) students are invited.

Each presentation is normally 1.5 hours, with a 45 minute presentation followed by 45 minutes of networking. Presentations will generally include information about the company, the culture, the types of roles on offer, potential career pathways, timeframes for applications and application processes. For interstate students and/or students that also work and are unable to attend the presentations, thorough weekly summaries are compiled and uploaded online.

Careers Month is a unique opportunity that can’t be missed during the AGSM MBA. When looking for a job, there is no better opportunity to meet great people from some of the most desirable firms. And the networking is not just a one-way street.

In the same way that you will be there to meet people and learn what you can about these companies, the people representing these firms have come to AGSM because they want to meet and recruit AGSM MBA students.

Speaking with a wide range of Australian industry leaders throughout Careers Month is invaluable to your professional development; and when done well can provide you access to the “hidden” job market. It is up to you to stand out from the crowd and make the most of the opportunities. It's important to remember that not all companies that participate in Careers Month will be recruiting for roles immediately but this shouldn't change your job search strategy. Careers Month is a once a year opportunity to rapidly develop and expand your network, dispel recruitment myths, hear from the companies in Australia that value your AGSM qualification and hear from alumni who have leveraged their own MBA qualifications to fast forward their career across various industries and sectors.

The full schedule for presenting companies is subject to change and will only be released two weeks prior.
