Not sure of your career direction now that you’ve graduated?

Just like planning a major life event, planning your career requires considered reflection and dedicated research. All CQUni graduates have access to a number of career services.

Determine your career direction
If you’re looking for career guidance, use Career Voyage, an online career guidance system which identifies types of work which match your interests, preferences and education goals.

Remember this is just one part of the career planning process - you may not agree with everything that appears in your reports, and that’s okay – this is about raising your awareness.
