About this Event

THIS WILL BE A VIRTUAL NETWORKING EVENT THROUGH ZOOM.

This event is for Industry Partners intending to engage a UniSA Business student for an internship

The UniSA Business Internship Program is continuing to grow, resulting in enhanced career outcomes for an even greater number of students and connections for industries. Even throughout the challenges of 2020, we have managed to adapt modalities to keep placements going.

We are building on the success of our first networking event held in November 2019 where we had over 100+ students connecting with 70+ industry personnel, from this dozens of matches were made that developed into placements.

This will be a formal facilitated networking session designed to maximise your opportunity to connect with students seeking internship placement opportunities. At registration you will be required to register which disciplines you are most interested in speaking with and then in the lead up to the event you will receive more information to ensure you are well prepared.

Confirming the aim of this event is that you will identify with student(s) that you would like to offer an internship, we're anticipating 150-200 students. These students will be seeking 15-day (about 65%), 30-day (about 34%), or possibly 45-day (1%) internships to be completed during one of the following periods:

  • November 2020 to February 2021
  • March to June 2021
  • Also students seeking placements for August 2021 and onwards

Proposed Program for the morning:

8:30-9:00am: Log on, Pre-event briefing and preparation

9:00-10:30am: Industry and Student facilitated networking

10:30am: Event close - complete post-event survey to confirm matches

FAQs

What do I need to prepare? You will have a 1 minute 'elevator pitch' summarising your organisation and the types of projects/activities that you may have a student intern undertake. The student will have a 30 second version. Each interaction only estimated to last 5 minutes.

Will I have the opportunity to meet every/any student I want to? Due to the scale of the event this is likely not possible. However, we do try and rotate people as much as possible and the benefit of a virtual event are we can control the timing to push people along. These rotations are all formulated prior to the event based on the preferences noted when you register, this enables you the opportunity to engage with the highest number of relevant students possible.

Can I bring more than one staff to the event? Short answer is YES, this was a feedback point from the last event. The catches are that everyone will need to register individually so we can track numbers, and as we are limited with capacity we may have group some staff together to give everyone an opportunity. We would recommend you coordinate your registrations so that you nominate as many disciplines as relevant, spread between your team.

Will you share the list of students prior/post the event? We don't share this level of detail prior to the event however we will ensure you have the key details of all relevant students during/post the event. We include the names of registered organisations in pre-event updates to students so they can undertake some prior research.
