Curtin Employability Program

The Curtin Employability Program helps provide students with career management and professional development skills.

The Curtin Employability Program provides you with the tools required to navigate a competitive recruitment process, and to successfully transition into the workplace. Most importantly, we want you to try things and learn from the experience. That’s why this program combines a series of mock recruitment activities with at least one self-sourced career prototype experience.

How it works

No matter where you are in your studies or work experience, it is never too early or too late to start prototyping your career.

This program begins with an application form designed to help you figure out where exactly you are, and how you can begin moving forward. Our team will also use this information to tailor our communications to you.

Applications are now open!

Not sure where to begin, really want to make the most of this program, or somewhere in between? You can always drop-in to Curtin Connect for an optional 10-minute Employability Program Design Consultation with one of our Careers Officers.

Not on the Bentley campus? We can arrange a consultation with you via phone or WebEx.

When you begin this program, we ask you to complete five professional development modules:

  • Who am I?
  • Boosting your Professionalism
  • Workplace Rights and Responsibility
  • Follow your curiosity and self-select a module
  • Follow your curiosity and self-select a module

You can complete these modules online via Curtin Careers Challenge, or book in to our workshops via UniHub.

Awareness is key to successfully navigating the recruitment process. In this program, we will step you through the process and provide you with resources and feedback along the way.

  • Resume
  • Psychometric Testing
  • Video Interview
  • Assessment Centre (Optional)
  •  Mock Interview (Optional)
  • Reference Check

This program asks you to complete 35 hours of self-sourced career prototyping experience. These experiences will help you learn more about your values and abilities, develop your valuable professional networks, and build your transferable skills.

At the start of this program, you identified who and where you are. To complete the program, we ask you to reflect on who you have become and where you still want to go. Employability is ongoing so make sure you stay curious and enjoy the journey.
