Unpaid work can be a very valuable asset in helping you secure a long-term career. As we live through the global COVID-19 pandemic, unpaid work can be more important than ever to build and develop your skills and knowledge. In this session, we will discuss:

  • What constitutes unpaid work;
  • How to identify a good, unpaid opportunity;
  • Leveraging this work;
  • Q+A

Later in the week, Inside Sherpa will be conducting an online session to discuss their virtual internships and how you can benefit from them.

If you are unable to make this session, register anyway and we will send you the recording afterwards.

About Fireside Discussions

The Career Fireside discussion series allows UQ's Career Advisors to directly address the issues that students are asking questions about right now at a set time each week – Tuesday @ 11am. This will provide a platform for students to seek advice on a topic that resonates with them, to ask their questions in a safe environment and gain support through shared experience with other students.

Our first six weeks of discussions address some of the burning questions that students have right now:

  • How do I find a job in these times?
  • Importance of networking right now?
  • Should I be considering unpaid work?
