6 top tips for exploring what’s out there

  1. Get some work experience while you’re still a student. Whether it’s a part-time job, internship or volunteering, it will help you grow your networks and learn more about what you like and don't like.
  2. Make a plan! List companies you’re interested in, research recruitment companies and set some goals.
  3. Browse the CDES Job Board and other job sites.
  4. Look online at the ‘Careers’ or ‘Jobs’ sections of companies you’re interested in to check for the latest vacancies and learn about their recruitment processes.
  5. Optimise your LinkedIn profile to make connections and search for opportunities. Make sure all your other social media platforms are appropriate and set them to private.
  6. Network, network, network! Go to career expos and career and recruitment events, and put yourself out there.
