While we are able to provide careers education, information and advice in relation to the Australian graduate labour market, we are not able to provide the same level of information about all other labour markets and practices. We are not qualified to provide specific advice on immigration/visa matters or courses of study though we can draw attention to relevant sources of information.

What we ask of you
We depend on you to help us provide the most effective possible service by:
- attending punctually for all individual appointments, and attending events for which you have signed up; or letting us know as soon as possible where that is not possible
- responding to our confidential surveys and requests for information on your career search experiences and career outcomes after graduation
- providing us with constructive feedback on the effectiveness of our service and publicity
- being considerate towards other users and staff in your use of the Centre
- recognising that our expertise lies in, and does not extend beyond, helping you:
- make and implement well-informed decisions about your careers including exploring the range of opportunities available to you and the abilities and skills needed for them
- clarify your values and interests and relate them to possible career choices
- develop career competencies that will support lifelong learning and career management
- recognise that the choices you make are your choices: we will provide all the help we can, but we will not make your choices for you.
