and Health Sciences Career Day: Discovering the Future of Gen Y in Health Sciences.
Careers Fair - The careers fair is held annually in March with over 2,000 attendees that comprises students and graduates. It takes place in our Great Hall and presents a chance for local, national and international organisations to attract our students from diverse disciplines and highlight the graduate and internship schemes on offer.
Field trips - A great way to learn about the inner workings of a professional business. Our students have visited Ernst & Young, Dell, BDO, Deloitte, Shell, Citibank, KPMG and Accenture where they had the opportunity to tour the office building and engaged with top recruiters directly.
International Career Series - A series of highly interactive workshops to provide both local and international students with the tools and confidence needed to develop their careers abroad. The sessions will discuss the reality and expectations when embarking on a global job search, the career implications after studying abroad and tips on cross-cultural networking.

Past presenters include Standard Chartered, Microsoft, OCBC, Nestle, Sime Darby, Unilever, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Reckitt Benckiser and Hilti.
