Building your employability takes time and a genuine investment in YOU! It’s not as simple as just having a good resume, rather it’s a journey that takes effort over time to ensure that you achieve your career goals and make informed decisions throughout your university journey. The sooner you start taking steps in the right direction, the better your chances of landing your dream job in the long term – and this needs to start as soon as you join us.
UniSA Career Services recommends a number of different ways to help build you employability.
UniSA CareerHub is a job board that promotes part-time/full-time/casual work, as well as volunteering opportunities. It’s great place to look for opportunities to build your work experience.

Studying abroad/exchange is a great way to gain an insight into skills needed to work with people from different cultures. UniSA offers a range of opportunities to study overseas. You may also want to investigate international volunteering opportunities, as advertised on UniSA CareerHub.
Undertaking an internship or work placement at university is an important way to start preparing yourself, and taking the right steps towards your future career. Career Services recommends that you take every opportunity to build on your experience through undertaking placements for course credits.
If this is not possible, perhaps finding a paid internship might be more appropriate for you. Regardless of which is best suited to you, the benefits of undertaking work experience is significant. It will help you define your career goals and support you to make informed decisions about your career pathway. For further information, please visit our Internships & Work Placements page.
