Careers in the Curriculum
Since 2007, all Swinburne students have been required to complete the zero-cost Careers in the Curriculum unit of study.
A major component in the university's Professional Learning initiative, the unit allows students to analyse their skills and training needs, enhance their ability to write an engaging resume and cover letter, develop interview skills and participate in a mock Assessment Centre.
Swinburne's links to business and industry are renowned, and the Careers and Employment Unit is commited to working closely with employers, who we encourage to advertise job vacancies, participate in graduate recruitment programs and post voluntary work placements.
Careers Resource Library
The Careers Resource Library provides Swinburne students with a large, up-to-date collection of career resources, including books and videos on career development, resumes, cover letters, interview preparation and international work and study.
The library also incorporates online career resources and will often have a range of free brochures and graduate guides on offer.
If you're having difficulty with a subject, an essay or even a concept within your course, a tutor will be able to offer a hand. Tutors are available through Careers and Employment and their services can be requested by completing this online Tutoring Request Form.
