Career Development


UniSA Career Services for Students and Graduates

While you are studying at UniSA, we offer you support to plan your career, to get yourself ready for the workplace and most importantly, to find a job in your chosen field.

As a serving/ex-serving ADF member, first responder, or an immediate family member, who may be planning or transitioning to a new career, our tailored resources and networks will help you:

  • harness your transferable skills, and
  • connect with employment contacts and work experiences that are relevant to your career goals.

You also have access to the wide variety of career development services that UniSA provides, including:

  • workshops,
  • self-help resources, and
  • events (like our Career Expo that is held each year).

Meet with one of our Career Advisers if you have questions or need guidance on:

  • career development/pathways,
  • change of program or course,
  • choosing an elective, or
  • developing a job search plan.
