The Graduate Career Office at the University of Pretoria strives to ensure that students and graduates are
aware of all the employment opportunities available to them. In pursuit of this awareness the Graduate
Career Office allows organisations and individual business to advertise using our internal advertising
channels at R 300 per advert for a 30 day period.

The adverts will be placed on the UP Career Page website, notice boards, as well as an email alert will be
sent to the relevant students/graduates.

The Graduate Career Office would like to invite you to advertise your vacancies, whether temporary or
permanent vacancies, we will advertise on your behalf.
