Careers UC for Employers

Careers UC is able to help you connect with our talented students by promoting your vacancies, employment opportunities and recruitment needs with our current students and recent graduates. 
The opportunities our students are typically looking for are:

Graduate ProgramsThese are structured programs where students can learn under a mentor, or through a rotating schedule where graduates experience differing departments of an organisation.
 Work-experience (Internships)These are course related work placements either during semester or semester breaks where students can gain professional experience. These opportunities come under Work Integrated learning (WIL) 
Entry- Level RolesThese are positions for new graduates or soon to be graduates entering the workforce.
Part-time, Casual Work

These are positions which students can undertake during the course of their studies. These positions suit students as a supplement to their studies and or professional development. Generalist jobs are also welcomed in gaining basic skills for the workforce.

Volunteering OpportunitiesThese are unpaid community placements, enabling students to develop themselves professionally through experience relevant to their degree.

Host an InternHosting an intern is a great way to source new talent, gain insights on a new project, and develop your professional leadership. Internships are usually unpaid, and require that a student completes a project under supervision. The placement is usually aligned alongside course requirements of the students' enrolled unit. Hours for placement will vary. Employers and Volunteering organisations who are interested to find out more information on this and other opportunities, please contact the WIL Team.
Community Volunteering @ UC 

Community Volunteering @ UC aims to enhance student's work readiness skills by providing unpaid Volunteering placements within the Canberra Community sector. The placements aim to assist students to develop employability skills and provide skilled and enthusiastic candidates to volunteering organisations. This is a reciprocal relationship between Careers UC and volunteering organisations. Volunteering Organisations that are interested, are directed to contact the WIL Team.
