Career & disability appointments for UQ students

UQ Students with a disability can access an on-campus (St Lucia) appointment with an employability specialist. Please book appointments for a Career & Disability Appointment directly through StudentHub.

Initial appointments are conducted in person at Student Services (building 21D) with flexible follow up appointments conducted either in person, over the telephone or via skype.  The specialist consultant is based at the St Lucia campus each Thursday and is hosted by the Careers Service.

For more information about the partnership between UQ & Maxima in the National Uni specialist employment partnership project (USEP), please contact Joachim or Krista at careers@uq.edu.au or visit the USEP website for more information including other participating Universities.

Walk-In career conversations

Do you need to speak with a Career Advisor quickly? All students are welcome to attend a walk-in chat with one of our Career Advisors for any employability related enquiry. This is a great place to start for the following questions which may not require a full appointment:

  1. Unsure of who to speak to regarding employability/career type enquiry
  2. Guidance for appropriate referrals/resources
  3. Confused about next steps in an employability/career related enquiry
  4. Resume/application/interview question or follow up

One of our Careers Advisors will be available during semester for Walk-In enquiries.

*Please note, bookings are not required for these enquiries
