Career Advice and Coaching

From your first weeks, our Success Coaches can help you identify your career goals and learn more about potential industries and employers by:

  • assisting you to create or clarify your career goals
  • providing guidance with writing a professional resume and cover letter, and
  • getting you ready for internships and job interviews

Connecting with Industry

While you study you will have many opportunities to connect with industry.

Our Industry Team works closely with your lecturers and Success Coaches to immerse industry into every element of your learning experience.
Note: If you are studying Diploma of Travel and Tourism, please contact

Industry in the classroom

We work closely with your lecturers to bring industry guest speakers into your classrooms - even if you study online. This is to give you the opportunity to learn how current trends relate to the theory you study.

Our guest speakers are from highly successful organisations. They serve as great role models, and provide you with the chance to imagine yourself in similar positions in the not-so-distant future.

Getting an industry perspective on a subject is refreshing. It creates deeper understanding and relevance of how theoretical principles are applied in the real world.
