- About Deakin
International Relations is a diverse area that requires a wide range of skills and knowledge in its application.
One of the best ways to ‘get the edge’ is to obtain not only course related work experience, but to seek out opportunities that help develop transferable skills. The more relevant the work experience is to your studies, the better the opportunities to stand out from the crowd when applying for jobs in your field.
For most positions, employers will require certain skill sets which you may have to address in the form of Selection Criteria.
The changing nature of the workforce is creating exciting opportunities for people with knowledge, experience and qualifications in international relations. New career paths are open in all levels of government, business, the media, consultancy, the defence forces, education, health, politics and research.
