Employability and Industry Engagement


Our Mission

Work integrated learning and employability at La Trobe encompasses the activities and experiences that support the development of knowledge, professional skills and personal capabilities to enhance a graduate’s long term professional success. To enable this, we take a life-long career management approach to engage with students and enrich their understanding of the graduate skills and attributes required to make a successful transition from university to the world of work. We work in partnership with industry and university staff to develop curricular and co-curricular opportunities that support students to articulate their skills and personal capabilities and develop the confidence to succeed across the life of their careers.

As part of this, La Trobe University is proud to offer the Career Ready Advantage program, a sector leading employability program that supports students to connect with industry and engage with experiences aligned to their desired employment and life goals.

A guided approach to professional development, career management and graduate success.
