Opportunities At Curtin

There are a range of opportunities available at Curtin that can enhance your graduate attributes, and increase your competitiveness when applying for graduate employment.

Earn While You Learn

Earn While You Learn (EWYL) is a Careers, Employment & Leadership initiative that recruits current Curtin University students into paid casual and part time on-campus positions. With a diverse range of opportunities on campus, EWYL enables you to enhance your employability, as well as providing a chance for you to share your skills and knowledge with various departments at Curtin University.

  1. Complete the online Resume Module, available through Curtin Challenge. Log in using your Oasis details, then click on the Careers Challenge icon
  2. Complete the Earn While You Learn Registration Form on UniHub
  3. The Careers, Employment & Leadership team will review your resume, and one of two things will happen:
    • If your resume is accepted, you will be required to complete four compulsory Staff Online Learning (SOL) modules, or
    • If your resume needs some work, feedback will be provided; you can then review and amend your resume. Once you have successfully resubmitted your resume, you can complete the SOL modules.
  4. Once the SOL modules have been completed, you will be entered into the EWYL talent pool and can start applying for jobs advertised in the “EWYL - Jobs on campus” work group on UniHub.

Volunteering

Volunteering experiences are a base from which you can commence building the skills and experience desired by your potential future employers. In addition to making a worthwhile contribution to the community, volunteering is an enriching experience that has a number of personal and professional benefits. 

Many not-for-profit organisations will have a volunteer page on their website which outlines how you can express an interest to volunteer, either on a specific project or general opportunity. You can also search online for volunteering opportunities that meet your personal criteria. 

If you are keen to get involved, Curtin Volunteers! offer one-off and ongoing volunteer opportunities across Western Australia spanning a broad range of interests.

If, after researching this information, you would like to discuss how to make the most of your opportunities at Curtin, contact Careers, Employment & Leadership to speak to one of our team. 

What you can do now...

Complete the 'Resumes' and 'Boosting Your Professionalism' modules online through Curtin Challenge, or book in to Professional Development Workshops to complete the modules in person.

Browse the Volunteering resource available on UniHub for more information on volunteering, the benefits and what to consider before you get involved.
