Job Opportunity Potential

The University of Melbourne runs a twice-annual mentoring programme that brings students together with alumni mentors who guide them through the career decision-making process.

Faculty-specific resources assist students in finding the most relevant careers advice for them. Students are also able to take self-assessment tests to help them determine which occupation is most suited to them.

We run workshops, one-on-one sessions, and student mentoring programs to give you the advice you need, when you need it.

About Careers and Employability
We provide you with the resources, support, and tools you need to achieve your career goals. Learn about our approach to employability and careers.

When you start university you may already know which career path you’d like to pursue. Or, you might be exploring your unique interests, passions, and opportunities.

No matter which category you’re in, career development starts from your first day at university. Career development doesn’t happen overnight. It takes time to develop a greater awareness of who you are and what you want to achieve.

At the University of Melbourne, career development is a journey that involves:

  • Understanding and reflecting on your motivations and preferences, current skills and knowledge gaps
  • Researching potential opportunities that help you develop meaningful, industry-relevant experiences
  • Goal setting and deciding on what career success means to you
  • Seeking and applying for roles that align with this vision.
  • During this process, your ability to understand and apply your knowledge will be critical in making successful career decisions. We have dedicated career advisers who can guide you through this career development journey.

What are employability skills?
Employability skills are more than just your ability to land a job. They cover your attitude, personal qualities, and transferable skills (e.g. teamwork and communication).

These skills are valued regardless of the role or industry you’re interested in—and understanding their importance can help you succeed in your career and beyond.

Our aim is to help you develop these skills so you can progress professionally in the workforce and community.

How we can help you
We provide online and in-person services: from one-on-one guidance, to learning modules, on campus workshops, and more.

We support you to:

  • Understand the possibilities open to you during and after your time at university
  • Design your career by understanding where your degree can take you, and guide you on what experiences will help you gain future employment
  • Identify your skills and how they apply to actual jobs in the industry you’re interested in
  • Find opportunities via our online jobs board and our employability programs
  • Connect with employers and professionals through our mentoring programs and industry networks
  • Navigate the job application process so your cover letter, resume, and interview style sets you up for success.
  • Our services are available to all current undergraduate and graduate University of Melbourne students.
