Employability Week

16-20 March 2020


We regret to inform you that Employability Week and all its associated events have been cancelled until further notice.

We have been overwhelmed with the interest and engagement in Employability Week events from both university staff, students and industry. However, the ongoing health and wellbeing of the UQ Community has and will continue to be our number one priority.

These events were designed to showcase the learning and development opportunities available across the University of Queensland to support student employability. We will endeavour to deliver these events at some point in the future and in the meantime, provide our continued support to enhance your employability.

We encourage you to visit our website and find out more

In 2020, The University of Queensland is excited to expand upon the previous successes of our annual Careers Fair, with a week of activities to engage with employers and develop your employability.

Through embracing UQ's Employability Framework of AwarenessExperiencesLearning and Transfer, Employability Week will provide you with a range of opportunities to develop the capabilities, mindsets and attributes to enable you to thrive at work and set yourself up for a satisfying and impactful career.

What can I expect?

The 21st Century world of work is continually changing, and many of us will have multiple careers during our lifetimes. Throughout Employability Week, you will learn more about career opportunities, engage meaningfully with employers, alumni and other industry partners in presentations and networking sessions, as well as participate in a wide suite of interactive workshops and talks that will empower you to take control of your career direction and unlock your future potential.

You can expect to take part in panel discussions, workshops, networking events and other pop-up activities that will all help give you skills that transcend your course work and build your lifelong employability.

Navigating Employability Week

There is so much happening across all three campuses during Employability Week that you may be wondering where to start?

We have developed some guides that can provide you with a pathway through some of the events that might be of interest to you based on your level of study or faculty. These are just suggestions and have been designed as a jumping off point to help you get the most out of the week.
