Make your experience matter

A dedicated week of employability activities and events runs each year. Current students from The University of Melbourne get the opportunity to explore a range of experiences that will help bolster their career story.

The week provides students with an opportunity to connect with employers, explore opportunities that will assist them in building their employability skills and to learn how to translate these skills when applying for future employment. One of our key events, the Careers & Opportunities Fair, has employers in attendance who offer internships, graduate positions and volunteer opportunities to our students.

Hear from students who attended the event and see how they articulated their experience, professional skills and career aspirations.
