Engagement and careers office

We are here to assist you to turn your ambition into reality. We understand that you need real world experience along with your degree to achieve your goals. Our career service is designed to give you a number of experiences to prepare you for entering employment upon graduation.

Industry recruitment program

In collaboration with industry partner Concentrix, FedUni Brisbane provides a unique opportunity for you to experience a live recruitment process.

Our Careers Office holds a number of relevant information sessions including CV development, phone and face-to-face interview techniques, which are aligned to the Concentrix recruitment process.

The program is designed to give students access to and practice in a real job recruitment setting. On completion of the careers program students are eligible to apply to our partner as a genuine job applicant for relevant casual/part-time positions available throughout the year.

Short course TAFE liaison

In partnership with TAFE Queensland Brisbane a number of short courses are available for students wishing to improve their part-time work skills or to add value to the main study program. For information see your Careers Officer.

Volunteering and leadership

At FedUni Brisbane we are interested in developing your skills in a variety of ways. A number of students find that they enjoy building their networking and social skills through volunteering roles in a number of different organisations.

ePortfolios

Mahara’s ePortfolio system is a fully featured electronic portfolio, weblog, resume builder and a professional and educational networking system, connecting users to an ePortfolio community of practice. All students and staff at FedUni have an ePortfolio account.

Migration workshops

If you are interested in investigating future work opportunities in Australia you will need to understand the pathways to obtain the appropriate visas. Our Careers Office hosts migration workshops each year by an accredited migration lawyer, which cover general skilled migration, changes to the skilled migration law and citizenship questions.

Post-graduation internship program

Ambition guaranteed! We offer every graduating student the opportunity to undertake an 8-12 week internship in the industry of their choice at no additional cost. The Careers Office will run sessions throughout the year to outline the program and offer students the opportunity to enrol.

Brisbane international student ambassador program

The program adopts students from all over the world to share their real-life Brisbane stories with their home country networks. In April 2016, 40 new advocates from 29 countries and eight education providers were appointed by the Lord Mayor. Student ambassadors use social media to spread the word on why Brisbane is increasingly the city of choice for international students. If you are interested in this great opportunity contact the Careers Office.
