About this event

School and university are very different to workplaces. This event will run through the whole job process, including finding, applying, interviewing and then keeping your job. You will see a live demonstration of how to fix your resume, the exact words to use in an interview and some meditation techniques to calm your job stress.

We will also highlight how to cope with failure and why self-awareness and empathy are key for getting a job. This is an exciting time to learn new skills and find new opportunities as you look for a job, hold onto your job or even make a new job for yourself.


  • Top tips in the job hunting and application process
  • Resume writing skills
  • How to ace a performance review once you have secured a job
  • How to cope with failure in the job hunting process
