Getting You Career Ready

 

Enabling our students to be career ready is always at the forefront of our minds here at Kent, however this can sometimes rely as much on what happens outside the classroom as to what happens within it. There are many events, programs and workshops on offer for our students to sink their teeth into in order to grow and nurture their career development. We thought we would break down what Kent offers you to boost your career prospects upon graduation.

 

Our LEAD Program
The first point of contact for students hoping to develop their career skillset is the Kent Leadership, Experience and Development (LEAD) program. The program focuses on enhancing leadership skills through volunteer work, workshop participation and networking opportunities. By joining this program, students will gain the necessary experience needed to be a confident leader in the business world and develop their commercial skillset throughout the duration of their time spent at Kent. It is also a great way to have fun and meet new friends outside of the classroom.

 

Personal and Professional Development Workshops
The latest Student Events Calendar has recently been released for the March – June period, and has a large focus on developing the personal and professional attributes of students. By attending these workshops, participants experience many different areas of their development as a student, such as career information, building confidence, personal success and much more. And just quietly, the Events Calendar also has some more social events for students who are looking for more of a fun time.

 

Kent Careers Service
The Kent Careers Service on the website is an extremely powerful tool for students to access valuable content on their professional development. The service boasts a job search engine, CV builder, cover letter builder, interview simulator, elevator pitch simulator, skills courses, thousands of online video’s, career suitability tests and much more. It is pretty much your one-stop-shop for anything related to your career development. Check out the Events Calendar for more information on tutorial workshops to attend to help navigate around this service.

 

The Student Representative Group
The Student Representative Group (SRG) consists of students from Kent who meet independently throughout the year to discuss key topics related to student welfare, academic suggestions and overall student experience at Kent. In a nutshell, the group represents the student body and provides a voice for any student who believes improvements can be made here at Kent, both academically and socially.

 

As you can see, these are just some examples of what Kent can offer you to develop your career prospects throughout the duration of your course. If you are interested in more information on any of these topics, please email us at lead@kent.edu.au to speak directly to a Career Advisor.
