NSW Jobs Connect for International Students

A New South Wales Government initiative delivered in partnership with Study NSW and SEEK.

Connecting international students with employers

NSW Jobs Connect for International Students is a NSW Government initiative connecting international students with employers to kick start their global careers. Together with industry, we’re enriching the international student experience by offering employment opportunities during study and after graduation. This reinforces NSW’s position as a global destination to study, live, and work.

Employers across Sydney and NSW play an important role in supporting international students and graduates to enhance their skills, career goals and professional development. In return, this stimulates workplace diversity, innovation and productivity.

More than 130 NSW employers have expressed interest in this program and over 70 have signed the NSW International Student Business Charter and have jobs available for international students.
