Employability & Careers

AUT Employability and Careers focus on helping you develop the skills to stand out to employers when looking for a work placement or graduate job.

Our lively team not only help you develop your CV and cover letters, interview, networking and social media skills, they also bring employers and leaders onto campus to talk about their industries, internships, graduate programmes, creating plenty of opportunities for you to meet potential employers.

The team are also experts in helping you untangle your career dreams and challenges, whatever they may be..

You can attend workshops and one-on-one appointments at the welcoming Employability Lab space on City Campus or at the Student Hubs on South and North Campus.

The Employability Lab is also the location for employer presentations and leadership speakers. You can also find hard copies of the Future Career Sheets in the Lab.

The AUT Edge Award is run by the Employability and Careers team, as are the Employability Matters events.

You are welcome to pop in any time, but if you want to make an appointment to see someone or book into a workshop or presentation you need to book on line through Elab Online..

If you have any questions, please email us on employability@aut.ac.nz
