Enhancing your employability

"Making yourself employable is a big part of getting the job you want – good qualifications are only half the answer…. the other half is good experience, especially the experience of working in a new culture and country!" (Employability and Graduate Development Service)

When you are applying for that perfect job, you will be in the company of thousands of others, so it is important to make sure that you stand out and can offer practical skills and experience that employers are looking for.

Employers are typically more interested in applicants who have travelled outside Australia and have experience working in a different culture/country. This demonstrates an ability to accept new challenges and adapt to new environments easily.

Whether you are a student or already in the work force, participating on a CCUSA program will provide you with skills to take forward in life. And having an internationally recognized company like CCUSA on your CV will give you a huge advantage in your career path!
