Presentations are wonderful ways to raise brand awareness and create a connection with students. They can be specific to your organisation or you can engage students by providing industry insights or an opportunity for them to develop skills. Presentations are virtual and you can manage bookings directly, or we can look after them for you.

Our Employers@BEL series provides a unique opportunity for BEL students to meet 1:1 with an industry representative for 15 minutes. These meetings are aimed at undergraduate students in their second year or above, or Masters students in any semester. Students can self-book an appointment and will be advised to dress to impress and come to their appointment armed with an agenda and questions. We will market the event and manage bookings, ensuring you only meet students from the relevant programs.

  • Paid Opportunities - If you have casual work, regular employment or vacation internships, we are happy to work with your organisation to actively promote these opportunities. The University of Queensland’s free online jobs portal, UQ CareerHub, is one of the most effective and easiest ways to advertise your employment opportunities to UQ students and graduates.

  • Unpaid Work Experience - Unpaid work experience is an opportunity for organisations to offer students industry experience that is outside of their course curriculum. In Queensland, the Education (Work Experience) Act 1996 (Qld) allows an education establishment, such as UQ, to approve unpaid work experience for its students, if the conditions of the legislation are satisfied.

  • Volunteering - If you are a not-for-profit organisation and you are looking for students to help with your business, we are happy to promote your opportunity. Volunteering is a valuable way for students to give back to the community, gain industry awareness and develop professional skills which will help them build their career profile.

Create an account with us to get started. Please let us know once you have posted a role and we will promote the opportunity for you.

candidate selection icon Work experience for early to mid-degree students

Each semester, we run the Student Work Experience Program (SWEP) which places highly motivated early to mid-degree business, economics and law students into unpaid work experience opportunities. Students compete in a recruitment process before they are considered for a work experience placement. As a host, you would provide valuable pre-professional learning experiences for 2 to 6 weeks, which can be full-time in a solid block of time or be spread over a number of weeks on a part-time basis. This short-term workforce talent can particularly suit long-term and non-business critical projects.

By participating in this program, your organisation will gain access to enthusiastic and innvovative thinkers wo can contribute new ideas and perspectives, the personal satisfaction of helping students progress their careers, insurance cover and full support from our team to answer any questions and provide guidance duing the placement.
