We know from our work with employers and organisations across New Zealand that Massey students are valued in the workplace. When you hire Massey students or graduates, you gain team members who:
- are creative, innovative and enthusiastic
- will bring fresh ideas and perspective to your team
- have skills and ideas that can help your business grow.
We work with employers to help them raise their profile at Massey, and connect with the best of our student talent.
Advertising jobs to Massey students and graduates
Employers interested in hiring Massey students can advertise jobs through our online vacancies board, MyHub. Our listings include full-time and part-time roles, and include:
- graduate programmes and one-off graduate roles
- holiday jobs
- volunteer work.
All Massey students have access to MyHub, and we offer the same access to our recent graduates.
We use the NZUniTalent portal to manage our job listings. It's a centralised system used by seven of the eight universities across New Zealand and offers you great service and unparalleled, direct access to NZ university students and recent graduates. Through the portal you can:
- publish listings straight into the online vacancies board of any, or all, of the participating universities
- target jobs to students studying particular subjects or disciplines
- access an activity dashboard to help you better manage your vacancies, and a multiple job uploading function to help simplify the job listing process
- use an employer profile building tool to ensure you get year around brand exposure.
We strongly encourage you to register with NZUniTalent to advertise jobs through Massey Career Centre.
We hold career events for our students throughout the year. Our events include:
- career talks
- drop-in sessions
- online seminars
- recruitment presentations.
Some events are tailored towards particular sectors – like our annual business and finance expo, for example. Others focus more on certain qualifications or roles, or on particular career skills.
We encourage employers to take part in these events. They're a great way to connect with our students and raise your organisation’s profile on campus. Recruitment presentations in particular are useful for giving students an insight into:
- the kind of work you have available
- the recruitment process
- how your selection process works
- what it’s like to work for your organisation.
We can host recruitment presentations on campus or online, depending on the students you want to engage with.
If an employer has Massey students or graduates working for them already, we recommend bringing them to events too. They can share their experience and help give students insight into the recruitment process.
To find out more about taking part in a careers event, or holding one yourself, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Hiring international students
Massey has a large community of international students who are keen to gain work experience while studying. Some students will also want to work in New Zealand after graduation.
We’ve contributed to a resource that:
- shows the value international students can bring to an organisation
- gives examples of how other employers are supporting international students into work.
