What does the labour market in your industry look like now and into the future? What are your strengths, dislikes and values? What do you need to do to achieve your career goals? These are some of the questions we can help you answer through an extensive suite of online resources purposely designed to help build your employability. 

The sooner you start taking steps in the right direction, the better your chances of landing your dream job - we want to make sure you have all the information and resources you need to make informed choices in your career.

From updating your resume to writing a winning cover letter or preparing for an upcoming interview - we've got all the tools you need. You'll also be able to take career and self-assessment tests, develop your elevator pitch, use the interactive interview simulator and watch videos from employers giving their advice on finding the right career. 

We also offer you a range of short courses to help you upskill in areas like delivering presentations, negotiating, problem solving and many more. Explore our Self-Help Career Resources.

Build your professional network

Mentoring across the University

Studying online doesn’t mean studying on your own. Mentoring is a form of networking where you can learn from, and be coached by someone with experience in your field.  You’ll also have the opportunity to be paired with other UniSA on-campus and online students with similar career goals to your own. Learn more.

Talk to industry representatives

Throughout your degree, you’ll have the opportunity to engage with industry representatives and make valuable connections with people in the field while you are studying. Talk to industry representatives who have a wealth of professional experience, or graduates who have gone on to exciting roles in your field.
