Managing the day to day demands of your studies, a casual job, and responsibilities at home can be tough. There isn't much time left to focus on developing your career.
That's where Co-NNECTIONS comes in, helping you broaden your professional networks, build confidence and experience in the workplace, and explore options for your future career, all with a new community of like-minded peers!
For organisations who value diversity in their workforce, Co-NNECTIONS offers a unique talent pipeline, as well as the opportunity to make a genuine difference to the lives of young people from diverse and often challenging circumstances.
Organisations can get involved in the program in a number of ways; by providing an on site workshop or networking event, mentoring individual students in the program, or offering invaluable professional experience through an internship.
I am sure I speak for everyone when I say it means a lot that this program gives students like us an opportunity. This program and placement have really helped me develop my self-awareness, professionalism, and confidence. It has instilled a self-belief that was missing before! I loved every part of it, thank you so much and I will be eternally grateful
