UWA is #1 in WA for graduate employability (QS Graduate Employability Ranking 2020) and our graduates consistently receive high levels of satisfaction from employers.

As well as developing specialist skills, our curriculum enhances students’ ability to think critically, problem-solve and collaborate. Through hands-on learning, internships, volunteering and international experiences, UWA students graduate ready to contribute meaningfully to your organisation.

Whether you’re a global organisation, not-for-profit, SME, government department or start-up, we offer a range of opportunities for you to engage with motivated students, recruit fresh new talent and promote your brand.

UWA has a diverse student body. Students can offer new perspectives, fresh thinking and contribute to a work culture that embraces new technology and actively seeks out ways to enhance business models.

Advertise an opportunity

Offer mutually beneficial internships

Internships provide an opportunity to invest in the next generation, building students' capacity through real-world experience as well as enabling students to progress their professional skills. By hosting an intern your organisation can:
  • harness WA’s brightest young minds, who bring fresh perspectives, ideas and new synergies to projects
  • build a recruitment pipeline, by taking the opportunity to evaluate and nurture talent prior to graduation
  • offer your staff professional development opportunities to mentor and manage students
  • raise the profile of your organisation through promotion to students and the wider UWA community
  • establish relationships within UWA which may lead to further collaborations.

Inspire the next generation of leaders

Mentoring is a great way to have a positive impact, give back to your profession, develop your leadership skills and build meaningful networks with students. As a mentor, you will offer advice and information about your own career journey, sharing with students your insights into the industry they hope to enter and empowering them to achieve their very best.

We’re on the lookout for mentors to join UWA’s Career Mentor Link, our award-winning industry mentoring program.
