Career Mentor Scheme

For over two decades, our Career Mentor Scheme has given our alumni opportunities to build networks and relationships, and gain important real-world experience that elevates professional careers.

The current scheme will relaunch in a new and improved format in 2020. If you would like to find out more about the new scheme or contribute towards its development, contact Berni Cooper.

Each year we partner with The Big Meet, a free one-day careers fair held at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, South Brisbane.

The event is targeted at undergraduates and recent graduates from all universities in South-East Queensland. It is held nationally and is organised by the Australian Association of Graduate Employers (AAGE).
