Job Ready – how international student graduates can gain a career-start position in Australia

International student graduates who seek a career start and possible Permanent Residency in Australia find it very difficult to gain professional positions. Increasing numbers of graduates and lack of networks for international students, is making it harder and harder to find work.

This skills development workshop, with an optional intensive mentoring and network development program through Rotary International has been running for 3 years with an 80% success rate in placing international graduates (who met the employer skill set below) in jobs in Australia to gain Permanent Residency.

Supported by the Flinders University, it is designed to fit final year and graduated international students to the work culture in Australia. Over 80% of career start positions in the private sector are not advertised. This workshop, and more especially the mentoring program, will link international graduates to local networks to gain access to these jobs.

It covers

  • The changes necessary to your resume to command attention from potential employers
  • The construction of unique letters of application which are critical for applicants to make the short list
  • Knowledge of the questions likely to be asked in job interviews and how to answer these to best effect
  • In depth understanding of, and access to the Australian business and work culture
  • Apart from a university qualification, the essential skill set employers demand of all graduates
  • The opportunity to be embedded within business leaders’ networks and mentored to build your own business networks, get job referrals and, most importantly, gain a career start

WHEN: Monday 22 September 2014 9.30am – 12.30 pm (individual help afterwards)

WHERE: Health Sciences Building 1.09 Lecture Theatre Flinders University

COST: $50.00 GST incl includes a full set of course notes and work exercises. Certificates of Achievement will be presented. Advance payment required (bank transfer details provided on registration). A small additional cost is charged for the optional intensive Rotary mentoring program

Register to euan@gdaysa.com.au or 0401 124 387 nominating Job ready 21.
