the 2021 Humanities job guide project

The goal of this project is to develop and publish a comprehensive Job Guide for Australian humanities university students. The guide will provide valuable insights into the Australian humanities job market and offer useful career tips from industry experts. 

The guide will assist current and prospective humanities university students in planning a degree, gaining relevant industry experience and in preparing for job applications once they graduate.
