As part of the Victorian Government’s Commitment to Action, Study Melbourne is partnering with SEEK to deliver a range of programs and tools dedicated to improving international student employment outcomes in Victoria.


Founded in Melbourne, SEEK is a market leader in online employment marketplaces. Study Melbourne’s partnership with SEEK includes the roll-out of the exclusive hashtag #MelbourneStudentCareers, which can be used by employers to promote vacancies that are open to Victorian international students. International students seeking professional employment can also use the hashtag during their job search to easily find opportunities that are available to them.

International Student Careers Fair

In 2023, Study Melbourne and SEEK hosted the Study Melbourne International Student Careers Fair. A first of its kind event in Victoria, the Careers Fair connected international students and graduates with employers.

Over 1,000 Victorian international students attended the Careers Fair, engaging and connecting with over 30 employers from a range of industries including Engineering, IT, and Management and Commerce. Students attended valuable information sessions on employability skill development, student and temporary graduate visa settings and graduate job seeking advice. They were inspired by fellow international student alumni through panel discussions on how to successfully navigate graduate and post-study employment opportunities in Victoria.

A range of employers were invited to a tailored information session on visa pathways, and a panel session providing information on best practice to hiring international student graduates and the benefits they bring to the workplace.
