Services for Employers

Advertise a Job

Graduate, Part-time/Casual Employment, Internship and Work Placement

CareerHub is the University’s official online job board that enables you to advertise employment opportunities to students. Students and recent graduates have exclusive password secure access to the system. Students are interested in opportunities for graduate positions, vacation, internship, work placement and part-time/casual positions.

This is a free service for employers.

CareerHub has approximately 6000 student logins per month.

Click here to view courses offered at JCU if you are seeking specific skills, but keep in mind that students are multi-talented and there may be students who suit your needs in other course areas.

Employers can enter vacancies themselves or can ask for assistance from JCU Careers and Employment staff. Please contact us on 07 4781 4711 in Townsville and 07 4232 1150 in Cairns to have the vacancy placed on JCU CareerHub.

You are asked to let JCU Careers and Employment know as soon as the vacancy is filled, so the vacancy can be removed from JCU CareerHub. Employers who enter their own vacancies on the JCU CareerHub are asked to remove vacancy advertisements once the position is filled.

On-Campus Presentations and Interviews

JCU Careers and Employment can assist you to organise face-to-face contact with students via on-campus presentations, information sessions and interviews. We can promote your campus visits to targeted groups of students and can help with organising a venue and audiovisual equipment. We can also arrange interview rooms and schedule student interviews on campus at any time during the year by appointment.

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

We encourage employers to engage with students on multiple campuses if opportunities are appropriate. Videoconference facilities are available on campus for presentations or interviews. Fees are charged for this service.

On campus displays

JCU Careers and Employment can display, brochures and other marketing materials associated with recruitment activities on campus where appropriate.
