What students say

"This is a really brilliant service. I felt much more prepared in terms of what to expect in job interviews, writing a new resumé and general tips and tricks. A Careers Consultant helped me and she was nothing short of incredible! I appreciate all her help and have been blown away by the support at RMIT." – Kelly, RMIT VE student
