Exclusive to
USQ Students

Connecting you with information and people within your future industry!

Welcome to USQ’s annual Career Insights Conference. Over the last few years, we’ve witnessed how work has changed dramatically. We’ve seen new careers open up and have learnt to be resilient and adjust our current ways of working. These changes impact the way we think about our future career and how we plan for it. This is why our 2021 conference focuses on future thinking, future planning.

We’ve expanded the conference this year to bring you more. More information, more resources, and more people for you to connect with. This conference will give you the opportunity to access resources; text or video chat directly with people in the know; listen and/or ask questions to those working in industry through our Q&A Panels; and attend our evening webinar sessions where you’ll hear from experts on a range of topics.

The USQ Careers & Employability Team are looking forward to hosting you and helping you to realise your career goals.
