The Career Centre's mission is to assist USJ students and those in the wider Macau community to achieve the best career outcomes attainable by each individual. We continuously scan the environment to ensure USJ helps to develop the skills, knowledge, abilities and self-knowledge of Macau’s young adults to prepare them for Macau’s economic and social environment.
At USJ, we benefit from the research, existing networks and collegial atmosphere to advise students on fit within industry and across functions. We guide prospective and existing USJ students in their choice of careers. We connect the USJ community with recruiters, industry, business and government, and non-government bodies.
Self-knowledge: As we develop our systems we will use assessment inventories and other psychometric techniques to offer counseling to students based upon research evidence. We advise on fit between the student and industry, organizations, careers and jobs based upon personality, interests and values.
Employment interview training: We offer seminars and experiential learning to ensure that students are prepared for a range of different interview techniques. These training events occur both on an ad hoc basis and through planned recruitment company seminars.
CV development and writing: We offer seminars and developmental workshops to collate, structure and format CVs with the view to increasing their substance over a student’s study life at USJ. The aim is to create a mindfulness regarding the CV as an ongoing life-time project.
The Career Centre networks with Chambers of Commerce, at industry events, community events, and at USJ community and public seminars. We undertake proactive communication with industry partners and business contacts and develop strong relationships with preferred recruitment companies and career development agencies.
Organisations that have positions for new graduates or part-time roles for current students are encouraged to contact the Career Centre with a job description so that we can advertise these positions to the whole student body.
