Event description

Description

The Adelaide branch of the Nutrition Society of Australia is hosting a Student Careers Night to give current students insight on different career pathways after graduation. The evening will begin with a keynote address from Claire Oliver who graduated from the University of South Australia (2012) with a Masters in Nutrition and Dietetics. Claire will talk about her career journey from being a new graduate to obtaining her current position as a Project Officer at Diabetes SA. Following her talk, students will participate in a group “speeding dating” activity with 6 nutrition experts, who will discuss their qualifications, career path from undergraduate to current position, and the nature of their current role. This will provide students with an opportunity to ask questions and gain an insight into the diverse possibilities of a career in nutrition. The night will be closed with drinks and nibbles.
