Come and let the newest Dev and UX talent in town show you that they mean business.

    Format

    The event is structured as a reverse job fair. Graduates will be stationed at tables, showcasing their individual and team projects. Employers are free to engage each grad at their discretion. Graduates are looking for paid employment, apprenticeship roles, and many are open to either/both. Please discuss your preferences for hiring with graduates as you meet them. Try to view as many graduate portfolios as possible during the event - moving around the space will ensure you get the greatest exposure to the range of skill sour graduates have to offer.

    You will receive a hardcopy graduate Profile Book at the event. We’ll also email you a digital version of the Profile Book following the event so that you can share with your colleagues, or click through to student portfolios.

    Companies who have hired GA grads around the world

    Please note: this is an exclusive event for companies who are looking to hire our General Assembly immersive graduates only.
