Employability Plus Programme

The Employability Plus Programme (EPP), launched in 2017, 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 EPP Activity, complete the Employability Plus Programme Agreement Form (you only need to do this once). Your application will be approved within two working days.

To find the answers to your EPP questions, visit our FAQ page and check out 'How EPP works' below.

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 is available to all enrolled students and is the place to go to request a Careers Advisor appointment, see details about careers events, find graduate employment opportunities or register to attend a workshop or tutorial.

Students involved in EPP will also be able to search and apply for volunteering opportunities both within the University and out in the community.
