Deakin International Student Careers

Deakin International Student Careers (DISC) is a program created specifically for international students to enhance your career education, marketability and employment outcomes in Australia and beyond.

We run workshops each trimester and provide resources and support to help you understand the Australian employment market and Australian workplace culture, build your experience, write a strong resume and prepare for your graduate job search, either in Australia or internationally.  At these events you’ll hear current students and graduates share their experiences, challenges and success stories about securing jobs and internships while living, working and studying in Australia.  

By joining DISC, you’ll join a community of students from all over the world and develop lifelong friendships and networks.

Student Testimonials

“I have attended a couple of DISC events and all have proven invaluable in their own way. One event (301 Workshop) was an eye-opening experience as I came to know about SME’s and opportunities in regional areas, which I was not aware of. I am now working on focusing on those sectors in my job search.”

“All international students should get involved in the DISC Program as it will help them get an overall understanding of the Australian workplace and job search. Having experienced professionals review my resume and sharing valuable feedback has certainly increased my confidence in my job search.”
