How CareerHub Central works

How do university careers services manage their jobs information?

Most Australian university careers services use ‘CareerHub’ software internally to manage job vacancy listings, employer details, contacts, events, FAQs, employment articles and links. CareerHub - a web-based product - manages each careers services’ portal which students can access using their university password.

There are over 2.8 million students registered on 35 Australian universitiy CareerHub sites. Students using CareerHub click on over 8 million jobs viewed per year.

How does CareerHub Central work?

CareerHub Central, created by the owners of CareerHub, operates as an interface with each participating university’s CareerHub software to take the hassle out of individually contacting multiple universities about your vacancies.

When you register on the CareerHub Central website, the system will distribute your contact details, jobs and profile directly into the CareerHub databases within each participating university.

When you publish your job advertisement using CareerHub Central, the following process occurs:

  • You create your job advertisement and select which universities you want to publish it to.
  • CareerHub Central will automatically distribute your job advertisement into the CareerHub software used internally by each selected university.
  • Each selected university careers service will be notified through their internal CareerHub system that the job advertisement has been listed.
  • After reading your job advertisement, the careers service staff will either accept your job for publishing OR contact you directly if they require further information.
  • You will receive a separate email from each university if your job advertisement has been approved for publishing at that institution.
  • Students will log in and see your job advertisement in the CareerHub student interface. CareerHub provides search facilities and category browsing options to enable students to find your job. Many universities also use CareerHub email newsletters which automatically perform job-matching logic for each individual student and emails your job directly into their student email inbox.

Each time you edit your organisation’s details, the system will automatically update each university’s database. There will be no need to contact each university individually as the careers staff at each university will be notified of your changes so they can easily keep in contact and inform you of other services they may provide to assist you.
