Get real life interview experience and lunch on us!
The Student Representative Council’s Interview Games are set to hit Nathan campus on November 23! Get real life interview experience with the Careers Service’s highly trained Career Leaders and get scored on your interview answers before heading into the great unknown (aka a real life interview with an employer).
This event is a fantastic way to practice your interview answers with people who really know what employers are looking for, win prizes and get lunch on us! While the uni break is a great time to relax, catch up with Netflix and Narcos (highly recommended) and make the most of finishing your exams for the year, it’s also a prime opportunity to get the edge in the employment race. This is why you’ll also have the chance to attend job workshops with our expert Careers Counsellors covering topics like 10 Secrets of Success in Securing Graduate Employment, Standout Resumes, Using LinkedIn to Benefit Your Career and Getting a Job in Australia (for International Students). You can choose which Interview Games session you would like to attend to fit around the workshops – details of which will be posted here later in the week. Registrations are limited so be quick!

“Chase your passion and the money will come”
Griffith graduate Chelsea McGuiness is a shining example of how pursuing the activities you are most passionate about can lead to a successful and fulfilling career later in life.
For Chelsea, coding was always a hobby. It was only during her gap year working as a reservationist in luxury transport did she realize it could become a long term career.
“My boss said ‘I want to change this on the website but I don’t want to get the guys to do it’, so I said ‘I’ll have a look at it’ and from there, I thought ‘maybe I should see what Uni offers in this area’ and that’s how I got into multimedia,” she says.
It’s a thread often repeated by fresh high school graduates who just don’t know what to do with their lives. Who does at 17? Evaluating the activities that make you happy is certainly a great place to start.

I have a secret addiction I’m going public with. I’m a Twitterholic. I get overly delighted when a post gets retweeted, favourited or someone I admire becomes a follower. Until now, I haven’t shared my Twitter obsession publicly. After attending Red University yesterday to hear from PR experts and learn valuable insights into the world of journalism from professionals in television, magazines and newspapers, I can now feel secure in knowing my Twitter addiction is actively shared and encouraged.
Red University is the forward-thinking initiative of integrated communications firm Red Republic which offers university students studying Communications, PR and Journalism the opportunity to gain inside knowledge of the real world of PR and journalism. In its second year, Red University delivers an intensive workshop focusing on taking the first steps into the industry, delivering and writing the perfect pitch and developing a personal brand to stand out from the crowd.
