Next Wednesday (May 18) the annual career event will be held on the Manawatu campus, with 26 organisations showcasing what they have to offer students in terms of summer or graduate work, work experience and scholarships.

Exhibitors this year are: Palmerston North City Council, Contact Energy, the National Bank, Ravensdown, Landcorp, HRINZ, Xero, NZ College of Chiropractic, the Air Force, Carter Holt Harvey, IEP, Plant & Food Research, Vision Manawatu, BNZ, Mainfreight, the Bio Commerce Centre, Ballance Agri-Nutrients, MetService, Cookie Time, Navy, Intergen, Elders, Massey College of Education, TeachNZ, Sport Manawatu and NZICA.
The Expo runs from 11am-2pm in the Dining Hall. The Career and Employment Service welcomes all students and staff to attend.
