The Careers and Employability Service is your resource to help students build their employability skills and transition to employment. We work with students across all disciplines and study levels, providing assistance to both undergraduate and post-graduate students.
We invite you to work with us to provide our students with careers support throughout their degree. Our services and programs assist students to prepare for employment from their first year at university up until 18 months post completion.
We can support you with
- embedding employability skills in the curriculum and developing tailored online resources

- professional skills development for students
- additional work experience opportunities
- promoting employer events
Our online employment portal, CareerHub is a one stop shop for students and staff and includes employment opportunities, career events and resources.
Embedded employability skills content
We provide customised presentations in topics. Our career development modules include career planning and pathways, job application support, strategies to build employability skills and advice from employers and industry professionals.

Industry and employer engagement
The Careers and Employability Service works closely with industry and professional associations to enhance employer- student interaction. We regularly have employers on campus and invite them into presentations to provide students with up to date industry expectations and facilitate engagement opportunities.
The Horizon Award is an award program unique to Flinders University, which fosters the importance of developing professional skills alongside academic studies and rewards these activities with formal recognition.
