Standing out from the competition has never been harder and so at TOP we believe it’s incredibly important to help prepare you to nail the interview process, whether it is for a job or a work placement.

Every semester a dedicated member of our staff organises workshops that will enable you to gain insight into what employers are after and how you can build yourself up to be a suitable candidate for the position you are after.

In these workshops we invite industry professionals to dedicate their time and expertise to give you advice and tips on topics that range from resume writing right down to nailing a job interview.

If you are interested in these workshops keep an eye out for posters around campus and stay on top of your emails from workexperience@top.edu.au
