How can you benefit?
Gain Real World Experience
The best way to prepare for the real world is by facing real world challenges. That’s exactly the opportunity you’ll have as an Enactus UNSW member. This is not a simulation or case study competition. You’ll be challenged to apply what you’re learning in the classroom to develop real programs that achieve real results for real people. Enactus teams teach families how to gain financial security, equip the unemployed with skills to find productive employment, help aspiring entrepreneurs achieve success, and bring economic development back to struggling neighbourhoods. Along the way you’ll develop the kind of teamwork, leadership and communication skills that can only come from real life experiences.
Start a Great Career
Enactus UNSW is part of an international network of Enactus teams who are supported by some of the best companies in the world. They recognize the value of the Enactus experience and compete very aggressively for the opportunity to meet and recruit Enactus students. You’ll have the chance to network with executives and recruiters from these companies at Enactus competitions, career fairs and through other interactive events and activities. You will also have access to exclusive career resources and content to help you prepare for the transition from university to the workplace. Every year, thousands of students leverage their Enactus experience and contacts to start careers with Enactus donor companies. Here is your chance to network with and get to know the leaders of some of the top companies in the world.
Represent Your University
Enactus is a team-based activity – you’ll be a member of a team that represents UNSW within the community and the Enactus network, directly contributing to the positive reputation of the university with each success you have. You will also represent your university in competition with other universities at the national level and if successful, you will have the once in a lifetime chance to compete for a world championship against the best teams in the world. As you and your teammates go about the process of building your team, developing projects, finding funding, overcoming obstacles and adversity and participating in a competition, you’ll develop the kinds of bonds and friendships that can last a lifetime.
