The Counselling and Careers Unit is staffed by a team of professional, personal and career counsellors.
The unit provides free and confidential vocational counselling appointments to both prospective and current students. The computer program Career Voyage is available to help users match their skills and interests with a suitable career.
Current students are also able to obtain assistance with job applications, resumes, interview skills and employment information.
The Career Resource Centre is located in 'Building H' (ground floor next to the Library) at The Gordon's City Campus and provides a range of resources including university handbooks, TAFE course directories and the latest VTAC guides. This is an open access facility, which we encourage students to use at their leisure.
In addition, the Careers Unit holds a range of workshops and class sessions on job searching (including resume preparation), career decision making and lodging online VTAC applications.
