Employability Plus Programme

The Employability Plus Programme (EPP) is a new initiative that gives University of Waikato students the opportunity to gain work-ready skills through volunteer activity. As a student, you'll get recognised for the extra work you do and stand out when you’re job hunting by gaining the practical skills and experience sought by prospective employers.

To join the programme, log into MyCareer using the link below, click My Account > My Volunteering Roles, complete the Employability Plus Programme Agreement Form (you only need to do this once). Your application will be approved overnight.

To find the answers to your EPP questions, visit our FAQ page.

Once you have joined EPP, you have the length of your time studying at the University of Waikato to be involved in the programme.

If you’re a not-for-profit organisation this is a great opportunity to engage with our students. Find out more about becoming an EPP partner below.

MyCareer software

MyCareer is career services management (CSM) software from a US based company called Symplicity. This will be available to all enrolled students from the beginning of A Semester 2017 and is the place to go to request a Careers Advisor appointment, find graduate employment opportunities or register to attend a workshop, tutorial or drop in. Students involved in EPP will also be able to search and apply for volunteering opportunities both within the University and out in the community.
