Student connection event

Local students attended the latest Study Sunshine Coast student connection and wellbeing event last week. Held at USC students participated in a career and employability workshop in the morning followed by a networking lunch. The workshop was designed to help students improve their CV and cover letter writing to give them the best chance of employment success.

Study Sunshine Coast Program Director Tracey Coobula said it was fantastic to see USC students at the event and for them to have to interact with other students. “We know that all students are looking for connection with other students and also form strong links to the community. The free programs and events we offer are not only focused on skilling students employability skills, they also give students the chance to meet and get to know other students,” Coobula said.

In the afternoon, students also had the option to register for a private 30 minute appointment with a Student Support Officer for Job and Wellbeing advice. “We found the uptake of these free student services appointments was really strong. There has been a lot going on for students over the last 18 months so it was beneficial for them to have the opportunity to speak with a Student Support Officer about the career needs and aspirations as receive as get tips and advice,” Coobula said.

Fully subsidised scholarships are now available to the Semester 2 intake of Project Global Citizen. The 8 week cultural competency course starts next Tuesday 12th October. Learn more and register.
