Careers Clinics

Deakin CREATE is running a series of free career clinics for people from refugee and asylum-seeking backgrounds to assist in the re-establishment of their careers in Australia.

These seven-week clinics are run on a mentee/mentor model, and as such, each participant will be assigned a mentor (a person with experience in the Australian employment landscape) to guide them through the program.

Who is eligible to attend?

  • Anyone who has arrived in Australia as a refugee or seeking asylum.
  • We have no restrictions on visa types, country of origin, or mode of arrival to get to Australia.
  • However, we do request mentees are ready to enter the workforce, have a good level of English, have post-secondary qualifications, and possibly some relevant work experience.
