Work with a Student or Graduate
Whether it's an internship, volunteering opportunity or graduate position, the University of Waikato can help you connect with our students and recent graduates to fulfil your staffing needs.
Work Integrated Learning
Work-integrated learning (WIL) offers a win-win for business and students alike. Local businesses can utilise students' knowledge and resource to complete projects while helping to develop future talent. For students, WIL provides an opportunity to apply their theoretical knowledge in a practical setting.
WIL encompasses work placements, internships, applied projects, summer research scholarships and more. These opportunities are essential for students to acquire knowledge, understanding and skills that will prepare them for the future work force.
For more information about work-integrated learning programmes and to provide opportunities to our students please contact:
Employability Plus Programme
Community and not-for-profit organisations can access student knowledge and resource for volunteer roles through the Employability Plus Programme (EPP).
Volunteer activities are a great way for students to develop the skills required by employers while helping local community groups.
To become an EPP partner, download our EPP Industry Brochure to find out what's involved and contact us to register your interest:

Advertise a Graduate Role
To help you advertise graduate and summer internship roles to our students, the University of Waikato has launched MyCareer, a career management system that employers and community organisations can use to promote opportunities of interest to our students.
To create your MyCareer account, you'll need to choose one email account as your main login. Once your account has been approved you will receive an email with a link that lets you set your own password. Please allow two working days for a new account to be approved.
If you have any questions about MyCareer or encounter issues when using the system, please contact Angela Scarsbrook: email@example.com
Verifying graduate records
If you'd like to verify with the University a particular academic record belonging to one of our graduates, contact our Assessment and Graduation Office.
