How does it work?

Prior to the fair

Once registered you will be sent a link to upload your employment profile for publication in the Employment Fair Profile Guide. For employers and recent graduates this is due no later than Friday 22 July 2022, for final BDS students this is due no later than Friday 15 July 2022.

This guide contains the profiles of all the employers and jobseekers attending the Employment Fair.

You will be sent this guide electronically three weeks prior to the Employment Fair.

Use this guide to highlight those jobseekers/employers you would like to meet with.

NZDA will relay this information to those jobseekers on the day of the Employment Fair via their individual appointment scheduling sheets.

On the day

Each employer will have their own semi-private appointment meeting site which allows for two interviewers.

Appointment scheduling will take place from 1.00 - 1.30pm and appointments will take place from 1.30 - 5.00pm.

Employers

  • If a jobseeker visits you during the 30 minutes of appointment scheduling (from 1.00 – 1.30pm) to request an appointment, you can either offer them a 10-minute appointment at a time that suits you both, or politely decline.
  • The 10-minute appointment slots will run from 1.30pm – 5.00pm. You will have the opportunity to meet with up to 19 jobseekers throughout the afternoon.
  • Appointments are aimed to provide that initial face-to-face introduction. We encourage you to arrange follow up interviews.

Jobseekers

  • Those employers that have indicated they are interested in meeting with you will be listed on your scheduling sheet. If you would like to meet with them also, visit them first to schedule an appointment.
  • If a DHB has shortlisted you for a first year house surgeon position, you will have a pre-scheduled 15-min appointment on your scheduling sheet.
  • Approach those employers you are most interested in meeting with to request appointments.
  • The 10-minute appointment slots will run from 1.00pm – 5.00pm.
  • You will be expected to attend a briefing at 12.30pm on Friday 19 August. You will receive your appointment scheduling sheet at this time.
