Australia – Hybrid Event – Making the leap Student to Young Professional – Are you prepared?

Attend online or in-person!

ALGA is committed to fostering the connection between our tertiary institutions and industry within Western Australia.

To help students and prospective employees understand what it takes to make the jump into full time employment and kick start a career as a Young Professional, ALGA is hosting a combined face to face and online information session in Perth.

ALGA will provide information on potential graduate intake programs coming up in 2022, and any potential vacation work and/ or work experience opportunities which students should also be looking out for.

ALGA also encourages representatives from industry to attend, to provide networking opportunities and a forum to share their experiences and advice.

Three Young Professionals will share their experiences, and provide insight into full time employment and how they made the transition from student to Young Professional.
