When should I submit my application?

You can submit your written application once you have completed all the Activity Requirements and reflected upon them.  There are three application rounds per year and you can apply for any round, so long as you are still enrolled at UQ and complete the written application and interview before you graduate.  

2023 Application round three - due 10 September 2023

More opportunities to receive the Employability Award will be available in 2024.

The application guide is subject to change so we highly recommend you follow the online instructions that are in place during your final semester at UQ.

3. Resume

You are required to submit a copy of your resume. 

Ensure you have included or considered the following elements:

  • Your contact details
  • Relevant educational experiences
  • Relevant work/extra-curricular experiences
  • Key achievements 
  • Document readability and flow.

For more support on how to prepare an effective resume, view the Careers Development Team's resources or undertake the Introduction to Resumes learning module.  

Important dates

Once you complete the activity requirements for the Award, you can submit an application.   

Application rounds for 2024 will be published by end of October. 

Please note: deadlines are firm dates and no extensions will be granted.
