As international students of Flinders University you have access to all the same services as our local students. However we recognise that you may have some different requirements and we have created a section containing careers information that is specific and designed to give you additional advice and support.
Use these pages, along with the rest of the Careers website to assist you with your career development skills and give you the information and contacts you need to enhance your graduate employability.
We provide online careers information and a program of networking events and workshops. We also show job vacancies online and provide links to sources of vacancies for global opportunities.
Marketing Your Edge
As international students, consider the following advantages you offer to prospective employers:
- Intercultural competence - an ability to communicate and work with people from other cultures and interact in environments that are culturally different
- Language skills - demonstrated capacity to converse and engage in business practices both in English and first language(s)
- Economically competitive - in many countries, a returning student with an Australian education will provide greater value for money than employing an expatriate.
- Global graduate - as the holder of both an Australian tertiary qualification and educated in another country, your attractiveness will increase its value to international employers as the business world continues to globalise and the importance of intercultural skills is acknowledged
