Introducing our latest alumni program

When you were studying did you ever have a moment where you weren’t sure where your study was taking you, what your graduate role would be like, or how to get a graduate job?

Many students have moments like these; and the people best positioned to give advice in these times are those who have experienced it (we’re looking at you, graduates).

To help with this, we’ve launched the 30 Minutes a Month program, where alumni (another word for graduates) are rewarded for participating in small activities that make a big difference to students.

How does it work?

This program is open to students who have graduated from a CQUniversity course. Alumni can sign up to the program, and start completing activities. Every month you choose from a list of activities which are worth varying amounts of time. When you complete a task, you accrue time. When you accrue enough minutes you get a reward. Simple!

You’re rewarded for your participation in three key ways:

  1. Building a portfolio of demonstrable experience. Completing tasks (especially those that are published online) demonstrates your professional experience and thought leadership.
  2. Helping students. Get those feel-good feelings knowing the activities you’re completing are helping students prepare for graduation and beyond.
  3. Free things. Every three consecutive months you complete 30 minutes of tasks you receive a prize. The prize keeps getting bigger and better every month you participate in the program.
