We provide a range of services to business, industry and community representatives who wish to hire or connect with VU students and graduates.
We have more than 50,000 students and 700 courses offering all levels of education. We can link you with our students, promote your employment opportunities and raise your brand profile among the future workforce.
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.
Why work with VU students?
VU students are engaged and work-ready in their discipline.
Our students also bring a wealth of practical experience – they gain hands-on work experience with real clients through our agencies, studios, and health-and-wellbeing clinics. Depending on their study program, students undertake extensive placements in schools, hospitals, trades, businesses, government departments, sport institutes or community settings.
You can be sure that when you hire or host a VU student, they will be ready to take on any task you set them.
Advertise jobs on Learning Hub
Accessed by current students and recent graduates, you can use our Learning Hub online jobs board to advertise your:

This is a free service for employers and host organisations.
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 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 for organisations wishing to host or hire VU students (subject to availability).
Forums & 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.
VU Employ can 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.
