Description

Are you uncertain or uneasy about your future work options as these constantly shift with AI and technology? How can you approach your career decisions to maximise your opportunities in the workplace?
Kick start the second half of semester and your career planning by exploring these questions with a panel of specialists facilitated by ANU Careers. Our panel will stimulate thought and discussion and provide practical strategies to approach these changes with purpose and a sense of calm and confidence.
