Career satisfaction in 2017 – is finding and keeping your dream job achievable in today’s job hop culture?

By Alex Hargreaves

Today I met with Amy*, a 23 year old business student who has studied 2 years of a bachelor of human services, one year of a bachelor of information technology, completed a diploma in social media and is currently in her first semester of business. Amy works as an assistant in financial services and whilst she enjoys it, she isn’t sure if that is what she wants to spend the next 10 years of her life doing.

Why you should attend employer events

Recently,  you may have noticed an increase in employer activity on campus.  Employers have been, and will be continuing to visit our campuses throughout 2017 – 2018 in place of the Griffith Careers Fair.  When you hear of an employer visit that sparks your interest,  it is a fantastic idea to make the effort to attend for many reasons (especially if the employer is relevant to your field of study!)

When is the right time to start thinking about your career?

By Alex Hargreaves

This question occurred to me a few times as a student, but each time I shrugged it off and thought ‘probably too soon’ until I graduated.  I always had different part time jobs when I was studying, until towards the end of my degree, when I had a full time job.  I thought that I need not bother looking at different career options in my final year because I already had a job that paid the bills and that would buy me time to figure out what it was that I really wanted to do.  Unfortunately, this way of thinking hindered me from applying for many really great opportunities that I could have tried for at the beginning of my final year.  I am very happy where I ended up, but I have no idea what opportunities I passed on simply because I didn’t know about them.  The reality is, the time to start thinking about your career is: the moment you start University!

How to be more professional as a student

By Alex Hargreaves

When attending networking events, it is easy to feel intimidated by senior managers who are smooth talkers and know exactly what to say and when to say it.  They seem to ooze confidence, command attention and are always dressed in the best.  University students are completely allowed to be, and are even expected to be, a little awkward in these situations.  It is good to keep in mind that senior leaders have usually been in their industry for a very long time and have gained a wealth of insight and experience into what they do. This extensive knowledge fuels their confidence when discussing their work with new people.  Nevertheless, if you would like to have an air of professionalism about you despite your lack of industry experience and/or age, this can definitely be achieved. When you put into practice the following skills, respect will instantly be earned!
