UQ students with a disability can access an on-campus Career & Disability Appointment with Joachim by making a booking through StudentHub. Initial appointments are conducted in person at Student Services (Building 21D) with flexible follow up appointments conducted either in-person, over the telephone, or via skype. These appointments are available each Thursday:
The University Specialist Employment Partnerships (USEP) program is a pilot program that partners The University of Queensland with Maxima, a disability services provider, and is aimed at helping students with a disability prepare for and obtain sustainable employment. Students can make an appointment to have their résumé or CV reviewed, find graduate employment opportunities, receive guidance around disclosing their disability status to potential employers, and understand their rights. We also refer students to other suitable programs across the University and Student Services that may be of help.
For more information on the partnership between UQ and Maxima through the national University Specialist Employment Partnerships (USEP) project, please contact Joachim or Krista at email@example.com or visit the USEP website for more information including other participating universities.
