Careers & Employability offer all UOW students, across all UOW campuses, free Career Chats with our experienced staff for your career and employability questions.
If you’re looking for some guidance on where your degree could take you or how you can plan your next career step, whether that’s industry experience, skills development or researching possibilities, talk it through with us. Career Chat runs up to 20 minutes.
