The Centre for Career Development
At the Centre for Career Development, our focus is on providing current Swinburne students and recent graduates with the skills and resources needed to succeed in today's competitive labour market and proactively manage and develop their careers into the future.
Our services assist you to both plan your career and also build a body of experience and skills outside the classroom which give you an advantage in the job application process. Our SwinEmploy portal provides you with many useful resources relevant to employment and employability. Throughout the year we run a range of seminars, workshops and conferences to give you access to the latest trends and an edge in your job applications. We also offer one-to-one career counselling for your more specific or detailed queries.
