Careers Week kicks off in Week 2 across campus with student activities scheduled every day, facilitated by professional staff from the Career and Employment Service team. Throughout the academic year, timely careers events, workshops, external job opportunities and contact information are available to all students via CareerHub.

Employability is a major motivator for students seeking qualification through higher education. Embedded across our curriculum, the multi award-winning PACE (Professional and Community Engagement) program is for all undergraduate students and is a vital part of their career preparation.

Related employability tools and resources are also available through CareerWise, and via iLearn for HDR students. Other programs that help students achieve their academic and career goals include: academic advice, mentoring, peer assisted learning and student representation roles.

On-campus employment opportunities for students are regularly posted by Campus Life and on the university’s employment page. We encourage staff to consider students for potential roles on campus and recommend shaping appropriate position descriptions with support from HR delegates.
