Adapting to the Australian job market – for international students

International-Students Button

Are you one of the many international students who will graduate with the opportunity to remain in Australia to undertake employment? Are you seeking Australian work experience or an internship during your studies? Discover proactive job search strategies that work for international students and graduates and learn the skills and information you need to present yourself with confidence.

If you have ever felt frustrated by Careers Fairs and employers advertising roles for ‘Australian Citizens or Permanent Residents only’, then this seminar is for you. International students and graduates can experience success in their Australian job search, but will benefit from looking for work differently than local students do. This seminar will assist international students who are considering remaining in Australia post-graduation on the 485, 517, 462, 457 or similar visas, as well as those who are seeking Australian work experience or an internship during their studies.

Topics covered include:

  • Talking to potential employers about your visa status
  • Using your research skills to target employers
  • Conducting a regional job search from Brisbane
  • Building your professional network to increase employment opportunities
  • Applying for unadvertised jobs

Students are welcome to attend seminars on any campus.

  1. This is excellent. As an international student I know how frustrating this can be so this is a welcome breath of fresh air. I did not attend school in Australia but I think international students share the same issues no matter where they are.
