At USQ, we offer free career counselling and have professional career development practitioners at all three campuses that can help you:
- make sound career decisions and set directions
- choose and change degree programs and majors
- discover resources to support career decisions and actions, and
- plan for employment after graduation.
Career counselling involves confidential sessions with an appropriately trained Career Development Practitioner, who will discuss your career, life plans, and personal influences that will affect your career. Career counselling usually involves setting goals and learning tasks to enable good career decisions.
Regardless of what stage you are at with your study program, there are some actions you can take to maximise your career opportunities and make the most of your studies at USQ.

Make an appointment
To see one of our career development practitioners, you will be required to attend a drop-in session (either in person or by phone). You will need to book the drop-in session at by contacting Student Services. You will then be able to present your concerns and the practitioner will develop an action plan with you. Sometimes the action plan will not include a full appointment or session with the practitioner; it may involve providing you with resources that will enable you to answer your questions.
Career Development Practitioners are available Monday to Friday. Drop-in sessions are opportunities to identify your presenting issue and can take the form of face-to-face or phone discussion. If required, further appointments can be made following the drop-in session. To make an appointment visit Student Services Reception located in G Block, or telephone +61 7 4631 2372.
