When to recruit?

Timing of recruitment is important, as high achieving students are very focused on exams and assignments. We recommend that you factor these dates into your recruitment plans for the best recruitment outcomes.

The academic year at Otago has two semesters.

Career expos are a great way to meet students and for them to meet you – on campus. We select busy student areas as venues for these events, ensuring maximum student traffic. Our fairs and expos are open to all Otago students, so you can recruit this year’s graduates – and raise your profile with future graduates.

An employer event can be held during the day or evening. We will ensure that your visit to Otago is as successful as possible and maximises your time here. event does not clash with relevant classes or exams. We recommend evening presentations start after 5pm. Otago has campus based catering facilities if you wish to have refreshments at the presentation.
