Career and job opportunities

Get prepared early


One of the most important things you'll do before you graduate is ensure you're career-ready with all the skills and knowledge needed to secure job opportunities and start building your career. We help students research organisations and opportunities, search and apply for jobs, prepare application documents and provide a platform where students can acquire the skills and experience to get them career-ready.

Mentoring and volunteering


Macquarie encourages a culture that’s supportive and that’s why we’re proud of the way our people step-up to help others. Our University mentors help new students settle in on campus and our faculties also offer a range of mentoring programs to help students grow academically. Volunteering to mentor is actively encouraged because it involves you in programs that benefit the University and the community while adding to your experience and personal growth.
