Information for Employers

JCU Careers and Employability provides many opportunities for employers to connect with JCU students including advertising opportunities through our website and social media, and facilitating targeted information sessions.

If you wish to discuss a vacancy or recruitment program with college representatives, JCU Careers and Employability can put you in touch with the appropriate academic staff member.

Whether you are a small or large business, a not-for-profit organisation or NGO, or an individual seeking to employ casual help, we can assist you with advertising your employment opportunities.

CareerHub is JCU's official online job portal for current JCU students and alumni looking to find employment. There is no fee for employers to register or post opportunities.

JCU students and recent graduates have exclusive access to CareerHub and are interested in opportunities for graduate roles, internships, clerkships, placements, vacation work, volunteer and part-time or casual positions.

If you are seeking specific skills, view the courses offered by JCU. Keep in mind that our students are multi-talented, and there may be students in other courses who suit your employment needs.

Register on CareerHub Employers or email [email protected] for assistance.
