Are you the proud owner of a bad CV? How do you know what to put into a CV? Here is a check list of the things to avoid.
Fronting up to a stranger, particularly someone who may end up being your employer, is not the easiest thing to do in the world. It can be terrifying, yet that is what you need to do at events such as career fairs, right?
The good news is that it is really really possible to become good at networking – at communicating and developing a connection with strangers. Read how five graduates overcame their reluctance to network – and ended up in great jobs - by lots of practice.
After the last career fair we had a few students question why more employers weren't taking applications for specific jobs on the day. Employers come to career fairs looking for opportunities to start engaging with students who will be looking for internships or graduate roles at a later date. Most do not come expecting to find someone to fill a role on the day.
Being prepped before going to an event makes a huge difference as was demonstrated at the recent Business and Economics Fair where employers were delighted with the number of students that turned up with pertinent questions and good knowledge.
Our team is very excited to host our second Physiotherapy Match Ready in late February and March to help equip students for the workplace, give them the opportunity to network with future employers and learn about graduate opportunities.
We are pleased to welcome employers from the ACC, Physiotherapy New Zealand, Active Plus, and Jelley Consulting to talk to our current AUT 4th year physiotherapy students.
Some of our AUT physiotherapy graduates share their own experiences about their own career journey, why they pursued physiotherapy and where they are now.
Experience in the workplace is gold to employers and they rate it highly. AUT offers a range of opportunities for students to gain work place experience, some compulsory, some not.
