Careers Service, Fremantle Campus

The Career Service provides valuable career support for students from Year One through to graduation and up to 18 months after graduation. We also conduct general and School based workshops, as well as provide a range of career management resources. The service offers support in the following areas:

  • Career and course planning
  • Job applications - résumés, cover letters and selection criteria statements
  • Interview skills and techniques
  • Networking and job search techniques
  • Future of work

Students and Alumni can access resources, events and make appointments via CareerHub.  We provide guidance and support for students who are seeking employment. Our extensive experience tells us that this kind of personal interaction leads to successful career planning, job hunting, confidence building and motivation.

  • CareerHub

    Current students and recent graduates can go the CareerHub for the following:

    • Access the job board for casual, graduate, internship and vacation opportunities.
    • View career and job resources to help you develop the skills to manage your career, course choices, and job search successfully.
    • Book to attend career and employment events and workshops.
    • Make an appointment to see a Career Officer.
  • Career pathways

    It is ok to be unsure about your career and course choices. After all it is common for people to change careers 4-5 times in their life in Australia.

    We can help you eliminate any doubts in your mind about which pathways may suit you and build confidence in navigating a changing workforce. Make a career appointment via CareerHub using your University of Notre Dame login.

    Before booking an appointment, the following websites may be of use in building self-awareness and gathering employment information:

    • My Career Match: As Notre Dame subscribes to this resource, simply email the Careers Officer for an access code and enter this when you’ve completed your profile. It’s easy to do and surprisingly accurate with a detailed report.
    • 16 Personalities: which is a useful personality test to build a language to describe who you are and why you do the things the way you do.
    • Barrett Personal Values Assessment: Your values reflect what is important to you, your motivations, and your beliefs. This is often forgotten when choosing careers.
    • Skillsroad: A slick, detailed website with a number of quizzes and self-assessment tools more suited to the school leaver.
    • Graduate Careers Australia: Check out their Career planning and resources section.
    • My Future: National career information site. Has partnership with Notre Dame. Create your own profile and explore. Register using your Notre Dame email to access extra information and resources on this Government funded website.
    • Job Outlook: Government funded, comprehensive career information and exploration site. Take the Career Quiz.

    Don’t forget to consult your School and Discipline coordinators when making such decisions.

  • Career resources

    Be sure to leave no stone unturned when seeking information. Begin by exploring online resources, the University library and the Career Service to aid you in your career choices.
