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!)
It’s that time again! Time to be updated with interesting, informative and timely information from your Careers and Employment Service.

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!
