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.
