Curtin Employability Program

The Curtin Employability Program provides you with the tools required to navigate a competitive recruitment process, and to successfully transition into the workplace. Most importantly, we want you to try things and learn from the experience. That’s why this program combines a series of mock recruitment activities with at least one self-sourced career prototype experience.
