FREE NETWORKING LUNCH WITH AUSTRALIA'S LEADING EMPLOYERS
Dear Student Society
I am writing to invite your Society to send a representative to the Perth
SocMeet on Thursday 5 March 2009.
What is SocMeet?
"SocMeet" is a networking meeting which is attended by representatives of
Australia's leading employers and representatives of faculty student
societies from Western Australian Universities.
Who Should Attend
We would like to invite your Society to send a suitable representative(s) to
SocMeet on Thursday 5 March. To keep numbers to a manageable level we are
suggesting that each Society sends up to three representatives. Who you send
is entirely up to you - it may be your President, your Sponsorships
Secretary, your Employer Liaison Manager etc.
Who else is being invited?
We have extended an open invitation to all employers in the Perth market to
attend SocMeet. As SocMeet coincides with The Big Meet careers fair (see
Fine Print section below) we anticipate that over 75 different employers
will be present on the day.
We have invited representatives of faculty student societies from WA's five
universities: Curtin, ECU, Murdoch, Notre Dame and UWA. So there is the
prospect that we will have up to five similar societies in attendance (e.g.
all five Commerce Societies)

What is the Purpose of SocMeet?
The purpose of SocMeet is to build stronger links between employers and
Employers are interested in raising their profile on campus and in
attracting graduates into their workforce. They are particularly interested
in developing strong ties with student societies which represent specific
Some of the issues of importance to student societies are raising funds and
providing their members with access to future employment opportunities.
Our aim is to bring together employers and student societies at the same
event to understand how both groups may be able to work together for
mutually beneficial outcomes.
We recognise that some student societies already have ties with particular
employers or industry associations. These existing relationships will
continue - SocMeet is an opportunity for everyone to meet everyone else.
