Unitemps, Employers on Campus, Seminars, and Cool Careers Initiatives in 2019!

In 2019, make the Griffith Careers and Employment Service a priority in your university experience! We can assist you with any advice you may need to do well in your job search.  We can help you find part-time, casual and full-time employment.

Keep up to date with jobs that are posted on Careerboard.  Unlike other job search websites, the Careers and Employment Team monitor all jobs posted to the site to ensure that they meet Fair Work Australia guidelines. Not to mention, all of the employers who post jobs on Careerboard have specifically sought out Griffith students to work for them.

Signing up for Unitemps can present many opportunities to really make a start at your career.  Unitemps consultants have jobs in all study disciplines that you can apply for, and if you are the best candidate for the role, you will be contacted! It is a good idea to introduce yourself to our consultants after applying for a role, as building rapport will help the consultants get a better understanding of who you are and your skill set. Our consultants are located in N53 at Nathan campus or G33 at Gold Coast campus. The Unitemps consultants offer Prep for Success Workshops to work on your resume, interview and presentation skills and can offer guidance even after you have the job.  Sign up for Unitemps and upload your resume today!

If you need advice on your resume, you can submit your current draft online to our Career Consultants for feedback. If you need advice on your interview skills, degree choice or your overall career direction, book a free appointment with one of our Career Development Officers.  You are eligible book an appointment if:

  • You are a current on campus Griffith student
  • You are studying with Griffith online (excluding OUA)
  • You graduated from Griffith within the past 12 months

Book an appointment here.

To prepare yourself with hunting for a job and all that the process entails, book yourself into one (or more) of our 2019 Careers Seminars.  These are free, informative sessions to be taken advantage of at a time and campus that suits you. You can view them here.

Build your professional contacts and learn more about Summer/Vacation and Graduate opportunities by attending our employer events on campus!  Events are a great way to improve your networking skills and get noticed by employers before applying for jobs!

When is the right time to start thinking about your career?

By Alex Hargreaves

This question occurred to me a few times as a student, but each time I shrugged it off and thought ‘probably too soon’ until I graduated.  I always had different part time jobs when I was studying, until towards the end of my degree, when I had a full time job.  I thought that I need not bother looking at different career options in my final year because I already had a job that paid the bills and that would buy me time to figure out what it was that I really wanted to do.

Unfortunately, this way of thinking hindered me from applying for many really great opportunities that I could have tried for at the beginning of my final year.  I am very happy where I ended up, but I have no idea what opportunities I passed on simply because I didn’t know about them.  The reality is, the time to start thinking about your career is: the moment you start University!

The S Model takes its first trip to a Brisbane university

By Alex Hargreaves 

On the 21st of March, the Tesla S Model made its first appearance on a university campus.  That university was GRIFFITH.  If you were lucky enough to be at Nathan that day or if made an effort to be there for the event, you would have had the privilege of gracing your eyes over the shiny, black, energy efficient automobile that Tesla is famous for.  You can have your own Tesla S Model for a mere drive away price of $131743.  If that doesn’t motivate you to aim for a high paying graduate job, I don’t know what will.

Graduate programs open for international students 2018

Graduate recruitment season is an exciting time for most final year students.  It’s the time that you can apply for the 2018 Graduate Program of the company(ies) of your dreams and begin tailoring video introductions, resumes and interview practice questions to fit the culture of those organizations.  Behind all the hype,  it should also be considered that some of us will be disappointed.  Namely, international students who have discovered that the program they wanted to apply for is only open to Australian/New Zealand Citizens or Australian Permanent Residents.
