Plan for your career
While we’ll never tell you what to do, or what to be, we will tell you that it’s never too early to start planning for your career. Part of that planning means knowing what your options are.
The Massey Career Centre can help you explore your career options based on:
- what you’re studying
- your interests
- the skills you already have
- your values
- what kind of work suits your personality.
We’ll ask you what kind of difference you want to make in the world, and help you work out how you can make it happen through your choice of career.
It’s good to start getting work experience as soon as possible, even while you're studying. It can help you make sure you’re on the right path with your career choice.
As a Massey student, you’ll get access to job search advice and our online job vacancies board, MyHub. You can use MyHub to look for work experience jobs while you study, and find roles to get you started in your career when you’re ready to graduate. Our job listings include full-time and part-time:
- new graduate and early professional roles
- volunteer jobs
- holiday or summer jobs.
You can customise your preferences online so you’ll only see the kind of jobs you’re interested in.
We hold career events for our students throughout the year. Our events include:
- career talks
- drop-in sessions
- online seminars
- employer presentations.
You can sign up for any events you’re interested in and use them to get advice, ask questions, and meet potential employers. Attending events can be a great way to connect with organisations interested in hiring Massey students for work experience or graduate roles.
Employers take part in our career events both on campus and online. If they have Massey graduates working for them already, they'll often bring them along to events too. Hearing about the recruitment process and the workplace from employers and former Massey students can give you valuable insight into an organisation.
