We know getting experience is hard, and landing a job is harder, so this post is the salve to that problem.  Each week we will add opportunities that we come across for you.  It is a great idea to scroll back and dive deeper – even if a position is closed it may be a good idea to see if the company has new offerings, add the company to your watch list, or make note of what appealed to you about the opportunity and apply that knowledge in other areas of your search!

Check back each week as we add to the list from what passes our desk and lands in our inbox.  If you have an opportunity to submit please email spark@deakin.edu.au.

Here is the (ever-changing) snapshot of opportunities that we want to share with you:
