Career Development Centre students

Services for students

The Career Development Centre (CDC) is your one-stop careers services hub, covering everything from career planning and Beyond Bond through to internships, work experience, part-time jobs and graduate destinations.

From your first weeks at university, we can help you identify your career goals and learn more about potential industries and employers; working with you through the processes of finding graduate positions, writing applications and resumes, and getting you ready for that all-important interview.

We are your go-to team for arranging internships and work experience placements with every type of organisation from top flight corporates through to small SMEs in your field of studies.

We can help you source holiday and part-time employment.

And, as a key point of contact for leading blue-chip employers actively recruiting university graduates, we can put you in touch with all the right people via personal introductions at our annual Job & Internship Fair, regular networking functions and referrals.

Contact us via phone or email to book an appointment or drop into our office any time on Level 1 of the Accommodation Centre, Building 9 (next to Student Flights).
