Employ a student or graduate

Is your organisation looking for a student, apprentice, trainee or graduate to fill a casual, part-time or full-time role? Or would you like to increase your organisation's profile among our future gradutes?

Advertise vacant positions, promote your employment and graduate programs, recruit an apprentice or trainee, run information sessions and more through Swinburne's Careers and Employability team.

Advertise vacancies to our students

Advertise your current employment opportunities to our students and recent graduates through the SwinEmploy online employment board. We accept advertisements for:

  • full-time, part-time or casual positions
  • paid internships or vacation work
  • entry level, apprentice, trainee or graduate positions
  • student tutors
  • household help opportunities.

All advertisements on SwinEmploy are subject to our guidelines and terms and conditions.

Connect with future-ready candidates

We have a range of free events, programs and services to connect you with current students and recent graduates. These include opportunities to: 

  • participate in our major on-campus events including Graduate Employability Week and the Student Employability Conference
  • join industry panels or present in classes and workshops
  • deliver webinars or on-campus employer information sessions.

Employer information sessions

Present a one-hour overview of your organisation and recruitment process to students on campus or via webinar. We promote the sessions via SwinEmploy and social media.

We recommend holding sessions within the first four weeks of semester between 11.30am and 2pm:

  • Semester 1: 4 - 29 March 2019
  • Semester 2: 5 - 30 August 2019

We are happy to accommodate sessions outside of these dates. Please view the summary academic calendars to find alternative dates during semester.

Verify student academic documents

Swinburne's academic documents are transitioning to an online platform called eQuals. Find out how to easily and quickly access and verify academic documents – and subsequently make faster recruitment decisions.

Employing international students

With changes to the government rules for visas and employment, you can now diversify your workforce by hiring an international student. International students bring cultural diversity, fresh perspectives into the workplace and insights into the overseas market. Your organisation can: 

  • provide a short-term professional internship
  • offer a part-time or casual position under the work conditions for student visa holders
  • employ a recent graduate through the Temporary Graduate visa (subclass 485).
