Did you know the Curtin Careers team have written a Career Guide for almost every major Curtin University has to offer? Yes, that’s right, a dedicated guide for each major across all faculties!
‘Wait…what’s a Career Guide?’ I hear you ask…
First thing’s first – where to find them. All our Career Guides can be found in UniHub’s Resource Library.
And if you’re now asking ‘What’s UniHub?’, we really need to talk! UniHub is an online platform where you’ll find job opportunities, upcoming events and employer profiles, along with a host of useful career related support and resources.
Use the Resource Library’s search function to find the guide you’re looking for. For example, I searched Career Guide Management and – voila! – I have immediate access to sixteen pages of valuable information related to a career in management.
Each Career Guide provides an overview of the key skills and attributes that are sort after by employers in your chosen field. These are in addition to the knowledge and competencies you’ll gain in your course.
There is also a list of potential roles your degree may lead to, depending on your major and specialisations. This is a great starting point in understanding the possible career paths that will be open to you.
Knowing your industry is vital to your career success, and each Career Guide provides a summary of current industry trends and labour market information, as well as where you can find out more about what’s happening in your field.
Alongside a list of prospective employers in your chosen field, each guide contains information on professional associations that can provide you with up-to-date industry information, accreditation, networking opportunities and ongoing professional development.
Our Career Guides also include suggestions on what you can be doing while you study to enhance your employability skills and ensure you’re a front-runner when applying for graduate positions. Just look for the Getting Job Ready section for ideas on building your skills and networks, searching and applying for jobs, as well as examples of opportunities you can aspire to in the future.
Last but not least is the Where to next? section, where we’ve provided a list of additional support, information and resources for you to explore, including our online learning modules, job application and LinkedIn review service, and links to international opportunities.
As you can see, we’ve done some of the hard work for you by providing a Career Guide for every major. Now all you have to do is log in to UniHub and find the guide tailored to your chosen career.
