CareerHub Central is NOT a recruitment agency that actively gets involved in the selection process.
CareerHub Central acts as a 'conduit' to facilitate easy communication between employers/ agencies
and university Careers Services and students/ graduates.
CareerHub Central is Australia's largest student employment network providing a centralised, web-based
resource to graduate recruiters. The only candidates with whom we put employers in touch are
those students and graduates who have registered with their own university's CareerHub system of which
there are in excess of 400,000 candidates.
CareerHub Central acts as a "clearing house" or distributor of employer's vacancies to all of the
that use CareerHub software. The majority of
universities in Australia
use CareerHub to manage the advertising of jobs, employer profiles, events and other career-related
information to their students.
Upon registration of a new entity at www.careerhub.com.au, perhaps bearing a similar name to another
already-registered organisation, you will be alerted by the message, 'The following employers were found
that have similar names to the one you entered. If one of these is your organisation then please DO
NOT register again as this will cause confusion for students when researching your organisation.'
If your organisation is large enough to have separate HR departments and locations then you can create
a separate registration for that Division.
CareerHub Central is a centralised web-based resource providing two major services to graduate recruiters:
1) the distribution of job advertisements and 2) CareerHub Employer Profiles.
Job distribution attracts a flat fee as and when it is used.
CareerHub's Employer Profile facility is visible year round and is a separate annual fee.
For more information about pricing see the Services and Prices page.
There is no renewable charge for distribution of job information and advertisements. Employers pay as and when
this facility is required. A
CareerHub Employer Profile
stays active on the universities' CareerHub sites
for a 12-month period and is renewable one year after the date of activation. We will notify you in advance
when your profile should be renewed.
CareerHub Central is not bound by print media deadlines. From the time a booking is made to have your
organisation's CareerHub Employer Profile activated, your Profile will be activated on the universities' CareerHub
sites in a matter of weeks, unless you specify a later date at which to activate it.
It takes between 10-20 minutes to add and post a job ready to be approved. Once your job has been posted,
there are two stages of approval; at the CareerHub Central level and at the university level. CareerHub
Central staff will either approve your job for distribution onto our network or contact you in the event of any
issues with your job posting. This usually takes 2-3 business hours. Distribution to the universities occurs
on the hour and takes anywhere between 1 hour up to 2 business days for each individual university to approve
the job for students to view.
You can monitor the progress of your job approval and distribution by logging into your CareerHub Central account,
clicking on our job and View Publish Details. If for any reason your job status is still showing as 'Awaiting Approval",
please contact the university concerned at https://www.careerhub.com.au/institutions.
You will NOT be able to edit the vacancy after publishing. Since CareerHub is actually sending content into
the universities own 'internal' CareerHub system then the university has a legal responsibility to check each
vacancy and edit. Therefore once checked by university staff the vacancy cannot be edited directly for legal
Please ensure that all details are 100 per cent correct before proceeding, if your job has already been
published to the universities, then you will need to call the CareerHub Support Team on 1300 852 112 to discuss
the details of your required change request.
You will NOT be able to edit the vacancy after publishing. Please ensure that all details are 100 per cent
correct before proceeding. If your job has already been published to some of the universities but
not all of those required, then you will need to call the CareerHub Support Team on 1300 852 112 to discuss
the details of your required change request. This may incur a small fee.
A job advertisement published / distributed to the universities will remain visible for 1 month from the
start of the 'publish' date which you specify.
CareerHub Central's job distribution facility will prompt you for credit card payment upon
completion of publishing that job. CareerHub Employer Profiles are invoiced separately.
It is also possible to have an account established if you are not able to pay by credit card.
To arrange this you will need to contact the CareerHub support team.
Having a perpetual job advertisement is not an effective way to obtain responses since your
job would be superseded by any new job listings and will literally 'fall to the bottom of the heap'.
It is far more dynamic to use opening and closing dates in line with your application dates and
to keep your distributed job top of mind and fresh in the eyes of potential candidates.
You can re-publish your existing job ads easily by going to your previously listed jobs then click on the
're-publish this job' link. This will create a new job ad which can be edited as required.
It is usually a good idea to change the title of the vacancy slightly to keep the job looking a bit 'fresh'.
Since it will be a recently published job again it will be flagged as 'new' for students.
Within your CareerHub Central employer account you can go to your 'current' or 'expired'
job list and then click the 'preview' link. This will display the listing in the same layout
as students will see it with the difference being that the student will see it in their own
university colours and interface design.
The CareerHub Industry listing is based on an upper level selection from the
Australian Bureau of Statistics standard industry classifications. If you are unsure of where
you fit you can refer to the full listing from your employer account, by clicking 'organisation details',
'employment categories' then
It is common for some occupations eg: Engineering, Consultants to have difficulty with the codes.
This is because the ANZSIC
codes are well considered and engineering is NOT an Industry but an
occupation within an Industry such as Building and Construction.
Log into CareerHub Central and, from your employer account, click 'my account', 'invoices / receipts'
then click the invoice number to download an invoice. Receipts will be indicated by a zero balance.
Employers registered with CareerHub Central can log in to edit their contact details. When you make
changes it will automatically be synchronised with your local account at participating
university careers services. Log into CareerHub Central and, from your employer account,
update 'organisation details', 'my details', 'staff contacts' or 'add a staff contact' as and when required.
Simply ensure that you have added that person as a staff contact in your employer account.
Their name will then appear in the drop-down menu during the job publishing process.
Because of the proprietorial nature of each university's student data, CareerHub Central is not allowed to provide statistical information to employers and recruiters. However we encourage you to make contact with the universities from which you wish to request this data by contacting each directly. A full list of contact details for each CareerHub university careers office can be found at Careers Service On-Campus Contacts.
CareerHub Central is not in a position to circulate GPA information without each individual student's
consent and in accordance with Australian privacy laws.
Each university's careers service office is unable to provide this information as they
are bound by confidentiality agreements.
You could make a fair assumption that most major graduate employers in Australia use CareerHub,
however we do not currently allow access to any other employer details through CareerHub Central
for respect of your privacy.
CareerHub Central can now distribute information to over 85% of Australian universities. More
universities are being added every few months. Visit the CareerHub Network
page to view the
current list of participating universities. CareerHub looks forward to keeping you appraised,
either by email or at our News Center
of newly-activated institutions.
Using your organisation's login email address, go to Forgot your password? to retrieve your password.
If you do not know your organisation's logon email address, call CareerHub Support on 1300 852 112 for assistance.
Your CareerHub Central account will automatically update your local accounts within each institution. However if you
do want to log in directly to the local account at one particular institution (eg: to add or register for an event)
then you will need to use the local username and password for that institution. If you do not know this you can use
the 'forgotten password' feature in the institution's interface or contact the Careers Service at that institution
This procedure is known to be awkward and we are currently working (Jan 2009) on a SSO (single sign on) method so
that you only need to use your CareerHub Central credentials.
It is very important NOT to create duplicate entries since this will fragment the view of your organisation when students
are researching. If you do have duplicate accounts then please contact CareerHub Support before listing any new items.
If your organisation provides recruitment services or is a recruitment consultancy, please call CareerHub Support
on 1300 852 112 to discuss the benefits of activating the Client Manager facility on your CareerHub Central employer
account. This is a free service.
Please call CareerHub Support on 1300 852 112 to change your employer account to be able to pay for job
distribution by invoice. Invoices are issued weekly.
You will see the session timeout window. Just enter your login details again and continue editing
whatever you were working on.
Log into your CareerHub Central account then navigate to the current or expired job and click 'view publish details'.
This will then provide you a listing of where the vacancy was published as well as if/ when it was approved at each institution.
Log into your CareerHub employer account, view any current or expired job and click 'preview job' and 'view publish details'.
Approval delay by university careers staff can occur for any reason. CareerHub Central does not monitor or guarantee
approval by each institution since this decision is made by the Careers Service staff at each institution.
To obtain the approval status for each institution log into your CareerHub Central account, view the job and
click 'view publish details'. If you want to then follow up directly with the institution then go to
to obtain university contact details so that you can discuss the delay directly.
Log into your CareerHub employer account, view that job and click 'view publish details' for approval
status for each university. If this confirms that they have not approved the vacancy then go to
CareerHub Network to
obtain university contact details so that you can discuss any problems. Please keep in mind that sometimes emails
can be delayed or trapped in 'filters'.
When you distribute jobs through CareerHub Central it mimics the process exactly as if you had logged
in to each institution individually and submitted your job. The same university staff will review and
approve it either way. CareerHub simply acts as an easier and more efficient way to keep in contact
with multiple universities at once. You can also go to our to
CareerHub Network page to obtain
university contact details.
CareerHub is commonly managed by the university Careers Service staff, although increasingly faculty members
are also utilising CareerHub as administrators. Unlike faculty noticeboards and email lists, ALL students at
each university have access to CareerHub by integration at a higher 'institution' level.
If you do have relationships with Faculty staff then we suggest you let them know that you have distributed
the vacancy through CareerHub and they can advise their students accordingly.
When a student becomes a graduate and no longer attends a university, their contact details are retained in
that university's CareerHub system. For example, Griffith University's student data goes back as far 1998,
and University of Queensland to 2000. As a result, graduates and alumni still receive job notifications.
Several universities have now created a category for 'experienced professionals' as a result of this growing
sector of the candidate pool and the recognition that employers are seeking to contact these individuals. We
expect this trend to increase as the value of contacting these experienced graduates is recognised.
Currently job adverts can only be entered in text however they will be automatically HTML formatted when presented
to students. This is currently done for security reasons.
Basic formatting such as line breaks and bullets can be added and links to external website and email addresses will automatically be created.
Feature artwork and graphics depicting your organisation's brand can be added in a
CareerHub Employer Profile.
You may only feature artwork and graphics depicting your organisation's brand in a
CareerHub Employer Profile.
Job distribution information does not permit graphics.
CareerHub is the application used internally by most of the university Careers Service in both Australia and
New Zealand. CareerHub is a complete solutions with CRM and CMS functionality to manage relationships with
Students and Employers and also disseminate other information such as events, appointment bookings, job
details, info sheets, FAQ's, employer research materials etc. CareerHub has been in operations since 1998
at some institutions.
Due to employer demand CareerHub Central was created in 2007 and operates as a centralised web interface
with each university's existing CareerHub job notification system to make it easier for employers and recruiters
to contact multiple universities about graduate vacancies in one quick and simple process.
All of the above job sites are for the 'general public' and their income stream is primarily based on the
quantity of advertisements and users of the sites. When you advertise on these sites anyone from anywhere
in the world can access and apply for your positions.
CareerHub is a very targeted and specialised system which is integrated directly with each university's
student system. The only individuals that can access jobs on CareerHub are students of graduates of the
institutions where you publish your vacancies to. Therefore it is completely targeted and you reduce the
time-wasting applications and have more access to the exact market you are seeking for your student or
CareerHub even knows what Discipline areas students/ graduates are in and will distribute and categorise
your vacancies accordingly.
During the CareerHub job publication process, you will be prompted to select certain study areas.
Your selections will be matched according to the 'best fit' at each university as specified by
the university careers service staff.
Students will nominate their interest and discipline areas and notifications will be sent to
students via the CareerHub Email news system.

If it's your intention to advertise a job with only one university then, of course, it is better that you
deal directly with that institution*. If you are wanting to widen the coverage to several universities
then using CareerHub Central will save you vast amounts of time and effort.
CareerHub Central is not paid for by universities. The distribution fee charged is used to support and
increase the functionality of the site. We believe CareerHub Central's nominal flat fee is of great value
considering the time and effort you will save.
CareerHub Central is not just another jobs website - it's the solution that makes advertising vacancies
and distributing your organisation's profile to pre-qualified job-searching students and graduates easy
and cost effective. We do not rely on marketing to get students to register with CareerHub, and CareerHub
Central acts as a "clearing house" or distributor of employer's vacancies to all of the participating
universities that use CareerHub software. The majority of universities in Australia use CareerHub to
manage the advertising of jobs, employer profiles, events and other career-related information to their
students. Whilst it is every employer's prerogative to follow traditional methods and contact institutions
separately to distribute graduate job information for free*, the CareerHub Central technology has been created to
simplify, automate and centralise that process for a nominal, flat fee.
*certain universities charge an additional administration fee
CareerHub is developing an API which will enable integration with other multi-post systems. This will require a bit of
tinkering. If you are after this functionality please ask your multi-post system technical representative to contact us on
and we will work things out for you.
1. ANU, applied only to recruitment firms
2. UNSW, $55/month fee for recruitment agencies and third party listings
When publishing a job on CareerHub Central, you have to option to deselect any of these institutions
if you don't wish to incur an additional fee. The above universities are clearly flagged during the job publishing process.
You will be contacted by the Universities directly in regards to their additional fees.
CareerHub Central will only approve listings for vacancies and opportunities that can be applied for directly.
Listings for external job boards or networks will not be approved. We advise you contact the universities directly for this purpose.
