Whether you would like to continue further with official studies, launch your own business or land the job you have been dreaming of, QUT offers a variety of support options to help you achieve your goals.
There is a range of exciting entrepreneurship learning opportunities for our alumni across the breadth of the university community, through activities, events, initiatives, public incubators and commercialisation opportunities.
When you partner, study or research entrepreneurship with us, you'll have access to a wealth of high-level expertise, resources and networking opportunities.
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).
Several QUT faculties also host their own individual careers fairs throughout the year. These include:
- QUT Business School Careers Fair
- Education Stepping Out Conference
- Science and Engineering careers.
Career and employability development
We provide the support necessary to help you as you begin and develop your career. This includes a range of services from résumé creation to guidance on how to launch a business.
Developing your employability is a lifelong adventure.
Employ your ability is a series of free online modules that will teach you how to self-manage your career, construct a professional identity, build relationships, and employ mindsets to adapt and innovate in a changing workforce.
For help with applying for a job or getting started in your career, QUT's trained career advisors can give you feedback on your résumé, selection criteria, cover letter and/or LinkedIn profile. This service is available to QUT graduates within 6 months of graduating.
Build upon your employability skills through online workshops or one-on-one consultations with a career educator. Appointments with career educators are available to QUT graduates within 6 months of graduating.
