Get ready for the event!
Tertiary to Work (TTW) is Canberra's graduate career fair for students of all disciplines and it’s happening on 2nd March 2021. It is an opportunity to find out about graduate jobs, and vacation and internship opportunities, giving you direct access to a wide range of employers. In 2021, Tertiary to Work will be run as a virtual fair, where employers will host webinars, chat rooms and provide a range of information and resources for students to access.
Please register on the TTW home page prior to the day. Registered students will receive a link to join. The event is exclusively for students of ANU, UC and ACU, so do not miss the opportunity to meet and network with over 50 leading employers. Please watch this short video to understand the functions of the platform.
You can make an agenda on the platform by choosing to star an employer in the webinar agenda list. If you want to see your own personal agenda, click the star button above the words 'Virtual Exhibition.'
Tips for attending Tertiary to Work 2021
A virtual career fair is just like an in-person event, in that you are aiming to find information, connect with employers and make a good impression. Below are some tips to help prepare for the event.
Google Chrome is the recommended platform to access the site and we recommend using a desktop PC or laptop to ensure maximum functionality. You will not be able to access all activities from a phone or tablet.
Prior to the event, familiarise yourself with the platform – watch the video provided for a demonstration of the site and how to join webinars, participate in the chat and navigate around the site. This will save you valuable time on the day of the fair.
Do your research! The platform will be open the week prior to the event, so jump online and find the employers you most want to meet. Make a note of their webinar time, booth availability time/s and read the resources provided at the booth. Prepare any questions you would like to ask of the employers. This will ensure you are able to make the most of interactions on the day.
On the day of the event, remember there are real people at the other end of your connection, who want to assist you with information about their organisation, what they are offering and the types of students they are looking for. Be friendly and organised, ask questions and get involved with the sessions /activities on offer to ensure you benefit from the opportunity.
First impressions count, so please turn your camera on and let employers see you in person. Dress to impress, in neat casual or business attire, and do not forget to smile!

Your research and networking at the event will provide you with valuable information that you should use in your applications.
