Information for industry
Our students, graduates and alumni have strong academic achievements and relevant practical skills. Employers can connect with TC Beirne talent through the Student Employability Team in the Faculty of Business, Economics and Law (BEL SET).
BEL SET can help you:
- advertise paid employment opportunities
- connect with students for unpaid work experience and volunteering opportunities
- participate in campus events
- profile your opportunities through social media.
BEL SET is a specialist team of industry experts happy to answer any questions.
The BEL SET consultants help you connect with students for your available paid and unpaid positions, and are happy to walk you through the process. UQ websites on which employers can advertise directly include StudentHub and GlobalGrad.
Organisations often find they benefit from the up-to-date knowledge, skills and the enthusiasm that a student brings. From the student’s point of view paid work or short-term unpaid work experience allows them to explore career options, gain hands-on experience in their field, and be competitive in an employment market that values work-ready graduates.
BEL SET works with employers to run a wide range of events, giving students opportunities to meet and learn from industry professionals. In return, organisations raise their profile amongst the law student cohort and meet some of the law school’s high achieving students. Events include:
- Employer-led workshops
- A Day in the Life series
- Community Engagement Program (non-profit and community organisations)
- Student Work Experience Program
- The Edge Student Leadership Series.
Contact BEL SET if you would like to discuss participating in any of its programs.

The Career Mentoring Program matches highly-motivated students with experienced professionals. You play a role in your mentee’s development while improving your own leadership and coaching skills. Students gain insight into their chosen career and bridge gaps between study and the workplace.
The program runs throughout the year (March - June or August - October) and complements students’ academic knowledge by offering a real industry perspective and practical advice.
