About this session

This year, the Student Employability Centre partnered with ITaLI to provide a series of workshops for UQ students seeking to enhance their employability.

The ‘Time to Shine’ series explained key drivers of the future of work, and illustrated how UQ experiences have prepared and contribute to the negotiation of a disruptive and constantly evolving world or work, careers and employability. Students were provided with techniques to help them articulate their employability story to shine in front of employers.

Attend this student-led event to hear what they’ve learnt as they stand up to stand out, three-minute thesis style.
