Event description


Delivered by Teach for Australia, this workshop will provide you with the knowledge and skills to tackle interviews and public speaking with confidence.

As one of the most selective graduate programs in the country, Teach for Australia will be sharing their insights on what graduate recruiters look for in interviews and the best strategies for success.

Teach For Australia recruits the country’s most outstanding and passionate graduates from all academic disciplines. Recruits commit to teaching in an educationally disadvantaged school for at least two years, whilst earning a full salary, significant professional development and a Masters of Teaching on scholarship.

This is a great opportunity for everybody, as the topics and skills discussed are most definitely transferable skills you can put your resume!

From this workshop, you will gain:

- Insight into the competency-based selection model used by most graduate recruiters

- Advice on behavioural interview techniques and an opportunity to apply them

- Knowledge of public speaking – the do’s and don’ts

- Tips on how to make an engaging presentation

Please register your attendance, places are limited!
