Career advice and job application checks

Make an appointment for career advice or have your job applications checked by our career consultants online.

Career and job search advice appointments

If you are a Victoria University of Wellington student or recent graduate, our career consultants can help you with career planning, decision-making and job applications, from the general exploration of career ideas to targeted careers and job information. Together you can discuss career-related issues such as career direction, study choices, job search, application and employment queries in a 30-minute appointment.

Log in to the University’s CareerHub for our available face-to-face and Zoom appointments. If you’d prefer a phone appointment, please contact careers-service@vuw.ac.nz.

For prospective students, you can be referred for an appointment once you’ve met with the Student Recruitment team.
