|“The TOP Student Career Development Program is a program that helps me to get ready for a career in business, which allowed me the opportunity to gain insight into how the top organisations of the world operate.
The most important skill I learnt from this program is how to build my personal brand and interview skills learning. It’s been really rewarding with many diverse experiences that helped me learn and grow.
This program will assist you to develop the skills and knowledge with which to build an exciting and inspiring career.”
|“The TOP Student Career Development Program with PwC Australia gave me the chance to improve my thinking and communication skills from a business perspective.
Most importantly, the program allowed me to consider real-life scenarios that occur in the business world. I think this assists me in being equipped to enter the workforce after completing my degree at TOP.”
|“Whilst undertaking the SCDP, I was able to work on my confidence and communication skills in example interview situations. What I liked most about the program is that it introduced me to how businesses operate by going through real-life case studies, and it encouraged me to participate in group discussions and offer my opinion on the cases studied.
The skills that you learn from the SCDP allow you to build on what you found interesting in your degree studies.”
