Need staff?

Employers are encouraged to advertise their positions on EDGE – the student career services management system at FedUni.

To register as an employer and advertise to FedUni students and graduates:

  • Follow the below link
  • Select ‘Employer’
  • Click on ‘Sign Up And Post Job’

The service is free and there are no limits to the number of jobs advertised.

FedUni recommends providing a salary range, to help increase student responses. Simply mentioning ‘to be discussed’, ‘depending on experience’, ‘negotiable’ will make it harder to find the right person to fill the role.
