Often the missing link between an employers ‘wish list’ and a student, is a track record in a variety of workplace experiences.
Work related experiences don’t just increase your employability, they can also clarify your career intentions. For some, it can even be a ‘try before you buy’ for both student and employer.
At Careers Central we offer you a variety of experiences within and outside of the curriculum that are open to undergraduate, postgraduate, domestic and international students.

The Fair Work Ombudsman provides a range of advice and help to understand workplace rights and responsibilities. It is recommended that university students seeking unpaid work experience include it as a formal part of their studies. Exemptions include volunteering with your chosen not for profit or volunteer organisation.
