Finding a job can be a real task, and a daunting one at that. It can take a lot of time and effort to sift through countless ads and websites to find a role that matches our interest, skills and experience. Luckily, however, a helping hand is now available for students at Charles Sturt.
The new Charles Sturt University Careers and Skills Hub is your one-stop shop for employment. You’ll find helpful courses to build core skills, industry reports and advice to read, resume and cover letter builders, employability programs to go through and places to store important documents such as your resume and cover letter. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. There’s also a Jobs Board, which you can find under ‘Jobs’ on the top menu of the page as seen below.
There are a lot of job sites on the internet, so what sets the Charles Sturt Jobs Board apart? Well, there are a few specific things that this one can help with, while others can’t. As a student, you can:
- search for jobs that local employers have advertised directly on our jobs board as well as any jobs that have been advertised on Indeed
- search for a variety of opportunities ranging from temporary/casual, full-time, graduate and volunteer positions
- set your job preferences and receive regular updates when a job is posted that matches these preferences, as seen below:
You can be specific with your job search using the advanced search function:
You can also follow employers to receive updates on any new positions posted by a specific company or employer.
Basically, applying for positions is really easy and there is even an option to preview your application before submitting, just to make sure everything is all good to go.
And if you need a hand with getting an application ready or you need some advice, you’re all sorted there too. You can find a wealth of information under the Advice and Tools tabs on the top menu, and if you need further help you can register for a free workshop hosted by the wonderful Careers and Skills Hub team.
There are plenty of jobs out there if you know where to look. Finding a job doesn’t have to be a challenge, so go out there, put your best foot forward and smash it.
