We've made the call to employers in our local UOW communities to tell us about their current vacancies - whether it's casual or part-time, in retail, hospitality, a semi-professional role or wrangling horses. The main thing is they need to be available to you now.
Becoming part of our Jobs off Campus (JOC) talent pool is easy if you're willing to put in the effort. Complete the JOC program to learn about yourself and your transferable skillset, job application processes and the Australian workplace, and, in turn, become a job ready professional. What’s more you will be on your way to receiving notifications about casual and part-time job opportunities around your campus.

JOC membership lasts up to one calendar year. At the beginning of each year, you will need to:
- Re-register so we know you are still keen to find part-time or casual work whilst studying;
- Complete a short refresher course to keep those job-ready skills sharp; and
- Complete the JOC talent pool questionnaire, so your JOC profile is up-to-date.
The workshops I attended as part of JOC gave me skills that have been extremely valuable in applying for jobs, such as how to answer selection criteria and what to write in a cover letter. Although I had been actively searching for jobs, JOC provided a unique pathway from most students that allowed me to find the perfect job for me in terms of convenience and my passions. I received support with the application process and interview, which I believe is one of the main reasons I am now employed.
I was super happy with the JOC process. Through JOC I was offered a casual position doing survey analysis during my Honours year, which evolved into a full time position after my thesis was submitted. It was all a very streamlined process. My manager was flexible with working hours so I could get my studies finished and local to home. I think getting a foot in the door is so important when you’re a new grad, and this job has eased me into full-time work in the most convenient way possible.JOC talent pool student
