Recruit or place VU students

Our Career Development and Employment department provides a range of services to business, industry and community representatives who wish to make links with VU students and graduates.

We can connect you with our students, promote your employment opportunities and raise your brand profile among the future workforce.

We have over 50,000 students and over 700 courses from our dual-sector institution, offering all levels of education, including certificates, diplomas, degrees and doctorates.

We can promote your employment opportunities through our work participation and recruitment programs, including 'learning in the workplace' opportunities for our students through industry and community projects, co-operative education and internships.

Web page banner advertising is available on our CareerHub online jobs board. You can use banners to raise your organisation's profile including your company's logo. We offer two types of online banner advertising:

  • Horizontal banners (468 x 60 pixels) cost $150 (incl. GST) for 30 days

Employer Information sessions

Information sessions allow you to present information about employment and other opportunities within your organisation, in a relaxed and personal interaction with students. These sessions can be promoted to students from all year levels.

On-campus interviews

On-campus interviews are a great way to save time and money. They are convenient for students as they can undertake interviews and application tests on campus making scheduling simpler. Private interview or assessment rooms can be provided at any Victoria University campus (subject to availability).

Forums and seminars

Presenting at careers forums and seminars is a great opportunity to share your expertise and 'give something back' to students and the community. Careers forums or seminars are designed to provide students with information about current labour market and industry trends, graduate skills and attributes sought by employers. By delivering at a careers forum or seminar you can:

  • help to educate students about current labour market practices
  • increase your organisation's profile on campus
  • interact with engaged and motivated students
  • share your experience as an industry expert
  • inform potential candidates about your recruitment process and the skills and attributes you value most.

Raise your profile on campus

We can display your posters, brochures and other materials at each of our careers resource centres on our campuses. Post your materials to:

Career Development and Employment
Victoria University
Footscray Park campus
PO Box 14428

Career Development and Employment can also assist you to connect with staff and students in our Colleges. You can get involved by:

  • establishing a competition
  • creating a scholarship
  • sharing your expertise as a guest lecturer
  • sponsoring events or activities on campus
  • becoming a mentor.
