Find a job
CareerHub is a is RMIT’s own employment website targeted at students and recent graduates. It’s a great way to search for vacancies and see who’s currently hiring. You can also use our global job search tool to look for roles in over 50 countries.
Apply for work
Once you’ve found a job you want to apply for, then the real work begins. It’s important to make sure you have an effective resume and know how to showcase your skills and abilities should you progress to an interview.
Build the perfect resume
Your resume is your most important tool when applying for a job. A great resume paired with a effective cover letter will open more doors than you think. But there’s an art to writing a compelling resume and it’s important to master it.
Performing on the day
While a great application may get you in the door, it’s how you perform in an interview setting that often determines your chances of getting the job. Use our interview simulator to practise answering key questions, or watch videos interview tips from employers.
Mastering the elevator pitch
An elevator pitch is an introductory summary about you and your goals. It is one of the most effective methods to promote yourself to potential employers, whether it’s during an interview or at networking and alumni events.
You can use RMIT’s Elevator Pitch Builder to create your own pitch, so next time someone asks, “What do you do?” you’ll be ready to make them take notice.
