Finding Employment in Australia

Hosted by ANU College of Business and Economics Careers

Building a career can be a daunting experience. This can be even more pronounced if you’re an international alum or student.

In this networking event, you’ll hear from alumni at different stages of their careers. They will discuss some of the challenges they have faced in building their careers, and provide insights on the various steps they took to find work in Canberra as international students.

This is a two-part event: A panel discussion with Q&A, where we’ll shed light on how you can build your career. This will be followed by a focused networking session.

This event is open to all alumni and students from the ANU College of Business and Economics.
