Career development resources for staff

Career Development Service

Graduate career success is vital to the University.

The Career Development Service (CDS) seeks to work collaboratively with staff across the University to ensure students are equipped with essential skills for building career success.

The most effective career development strategies begin in first year and are progressively built upon throughout the entire degree. A staged approach to career development learning assists with student retention, motivation and graduate outcomes.

We can design presentations and resources specifically for your students and industry sectors and welcome your enquiries.

Guest lectures and presentations

  • Career development and job search seminars in lectures. We can tailor a range of presentations for all years to assist students with self-awareness, opportunity awareness and job or internship search strategies, including mock interviews.

Email careers@scu.edu.au and we will contact you to discuss your specific needs.
