Develop your employability while you study

Career development is about the process of managing your learning, work and leisure to progress through life - gaining and using the skills and knowledge needed to plan and make informed decisions about education, training and work.

It’s useful to remember that employability skills are the non-technical skills needed to get a job. These ‘soft skills’ include communication, teamwork, problem solving, initiative, planning and organising, decision making, self-management and networking.

Current students in the School have access to tools and resources on the Uni Melb online career hub, they can explore options through the Student @ Work Internship Program and Melbourne Plus and get involved in careers and networking events.
