SpeedMeet brings together students and employers from a variety of industries 'speed-dating style', via short six minute mini-interviews. If both employer and student note that they are interested, a match is made, and the student's contact details passed on the prospective employer.

The events give students the opportunity to have valuable discussions with prospective employers, learn more a whole range of industries, and are a great way to practice interview skills.

This year's SpeedMeets are funded by the Ministry of Education and will be taking place over August and September in 12 locations  across New Zealand - 9am to 2.30pm except Whangarei.
