We all need to plan and make decisions to help us progress in our careers. The Career Consultants are highly trained experts who can sit down with you and help you work through any of the issues associated with careers. We will help you understand yourself, understand opportunities open to you, and understand influences around you so that you can make decisions from choosing appropriate programs to choosing suitable careers. We also guide you on how to go about setting career goals and achieving them.

Careers, Alumni and Industry Relations provides a wide array of career information in a variety of formats for you. They include a wide range of leaflets from the Job Shop or provided by industry, online channels (the Career Centre facebook and Career Resources). We also provide our students with the Career Development Guidebook, developed by our expert staff, to help you through all the major career related issues and steps it takes to become work-ready by the end of your study.

In addition, we present you with a general picture of where our recent graduates go after they finished their study at RMIT University Vietnam through the outcomes of the Vietnam Graduate Outcomes Survey to give you better understanding of your careers options.
