In support of National Volunteering Week we are running a specialised fireside on Volunteering in the community.

Volunteering is a great way to gain valuable work experience and from these experiences you can develop many skills and capabilities. In this session we will look at:

  • What is volunteering and what is a volunteer?
  • Volunteering opportunities
  • The benefits of volunteering
  • What you should consider when looking for a volunteer role
  • How to find a suitable volunteer role

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?
