A few examples of workshops include:
Public and private organisations across Australia recruit university graduates from a broad range of study areas, and the recruitment process starts early in the last year of your study. To learn more about graduate recruitment programs and how to make your application stand out, view our podcast (available as a media file, audio download and vodcast for iTunes).
Drop in sessions for specific advice and tips on job applications, resumes and cover letters. You determine what you require assistance with, and we will support you in navigating the job application process (Hobart only).
Learn how to write a resume that will create a positive impression.
Develop strategies to get you through the job interview process and increase your confidence.
Many jobs are not advertised, so learn the importance of networking and how to use your networks effectively.
A key element in the job selection process, and one that people often find most difficult. Increase your knowledge and skills in writing effective selection criteria responses.
Do you know what employers are looking for when selecting applicants? Come along and learn about employability skills. What they are, how to develop them and why they are important to employers.
Employer information sessions with local and national organisations are held during careers week and regularly throughout the year on the Hobart and Launceston campuses. Meeting prospective employers on campus provides a great opportunity for UTAS students to network and gather information and tips first hand.
