Event description

Description

Where will you be in five years? If you are a student considering a career in industry - how will you get there? Or if you are mentoring someone considering a transition from academia to industry - what advice do you share?

IMNIS and Engineers Australia welcome you to our first partner event where you will hear from expert STEM professionals in Energy and Minerals Resources with extensive experience in different parts of the industry sector. Learn how they apply their STEM training to lead and excel in a range of rewarding roles. An expert panel will discuss transferable skills, ‘soft’ skills, the value of a professional network, potential jobs of the future and their top tips for career success. Think outside the square and dream big about future careers!

There will be time for questions and a light breakfast will be served (Registration opens 7:15am).
