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.
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!)
NSW Government are reaching out to Griffith Students this semester to apply for their 2018 Graduate Program. NSW Government will be at Nathan Campus on Monday the 24th of July from 12:00 – 1:30PM in N78 -1.24. Due to recent expansion, NSW Government have seen the value of expanding their recruitment pool to out of state applicants. Griffith University was among their list of Unis with students that they wanted to meet.
