This year's FMCG Careers Expo held at Auckland University today follows on from a very successful event last year that attracted thousands of students to increase awareness and promote the industry. Several participating companies from last year's expo hired graduates from the event.
Today's expo saw over 30 supplier and retailer exhibits and showcased FMCG as the 'Industry of Choice' for students. Exhibits are both informative and interactive, and allow companies to discuss career options and entry roles as well as engaging students with product samples and games. They don't have to offer graduate roles or programmes but is simply a great way for the industry to work together to promote itself as well as individual brands.
