Event spotlight: Success Week 

"I attended three sessions during Success Week, namely Professional Branding, Grad Connection and the One-on-One Resume builder with David Choe. I thoroughly enjoyed all sessions, and found them very interesting and informative. It was an eye-opener for me as it made me realise the importance of creating my own professional brand, and how I can make LinkedIn and Facebook work for me. 

The session on Grad Connection made me realise that if I want to get a job in my field of study with a reputable company, networking will give me the opportunity to connect with industry professionals."

- Andreea Leibov, MBA/MPM student


"Torrens University periodically organises Success Week where students are provided with a number of professional development seminars. I participated in the Grad Connection workshop. It is a platform and website to help students who have graduated find job opportunities that match their degree. The presenter, Zoey, was fantastic, and enthusiastic. I really appreciated her way to go 'over the line'. She was fabulous in explaining the contents, giving us tips and highlighting the common mistakes to avoid as a graduate. The highlight of the session was information she shared about LinkedIn, and Emotional Intelligence. She shared personal moments of her career as examples which was honest and warm."

- Claudia De Luca, MBAA student
