Enhancing your employability
International Student Life provides support to equip you with the knowledge and capabilities to establish a successful career and upon graduation to be ‘employment ready’. An International Student Adviser Employability is available as extra support to international students to enhance your personal employability.
Use your time at Swinburne strategically, to develop the employability skills and mindset in demand by employers, who want more than technical expertise. Employers want work-ready graduates who are client focused, strong communicators, problem solvers, team players and more. You need to complement your formal qualification with skills and experiences that give you that extra employability edge. International Student Life will work in partnership with you to develop these qualities which form part of the globally recognised ‘employability skill set’.
International Student Life provides professional insights and guidance. We connect you with programs, events and activities to advance your professional career internationally and in Australia, extending beyond what you learn in the classroom. We also provide support in terms of your employment rights and responsibilities.
