ARE YOU A GRAD GIRL?
Sponsor Announcements Coming Soon

Sessions will be hosted by a sponsor at their offices and will include:
These tours are a great opportunity to see careers in action, and see how their offices and organisations are structured.
Insightful talks about their roles, skills, responsibilities and what they do in the tech industry – from both a career and organisational perspective.
Provide guidance on what they look for in candidates for their graduate programs and/or tech roles.
The program will also include discussions and advice on soft skills not often covered in tertiary education such as creating a personal brand, writing your first CV and LinkedIn profile, making the choice between industry and academia, networking and appropriate workplace behaviour.
Ultimately, the Grad Girl graduates will walk away with all the necessary information to make an informed decision about the first step in their career paths as well as the start of their professional network.
Participants will have the opportunity to win career related prizes such as a personal shopping and fitting for interview attire and a voucher for the 2019 Vic ICT for Women Mentoring program
