06 Jul Register now for ICMJ careers panel and professional development session
University students seeking a career in the red meat industry must register soon if they wish to attend the ICMJ careers panel discussion and professional development components of the upcoming Intercollegiate Meat Judging Association (ICMJ) Careers Expo.
The first two events in the ICMJ’s Careers Expo, which runs from July 8-10, will focus on assisting university students and job seekers to put their best foot forward as they begin their career within the industry. These sessions will provide perfect training for the one-on-one virtual meetings with future employers, which are being offered via the Careers Fair Plus app on 10 July 2020.
On Wednesday, July 8, students and job seekers will be able to ask questions of four industry professionals who will discuss the range of career paths on offer, in-demand skill sets, and what employers are looking for in graduates via the ICMJ Careers Panel Q&A discussion. And on Thursday, July 9, students will get top tips from leading rural recruitment agency, Rimfire Resources as well as networking advice from the chief executive of Beef Australia Ian Mill at the ICMJ Professional Development Training Session.
Both the Careers Panel Q&A discussion and Professional Development Training Session are free, one-hour Zoom sessions and students must register to attend (see registration link in the below program).
ICMJ Careers Expo coordinator Rozzie O’Reilly said both events will give students a competitive advantage when they undertake their virtual meetings on day 3 of the Expo, as well as any future job interviews.
“We have already had a great response to our virtual meet-and-greets on Friday July 10 which just shows how many excited, young job seekers are out there ready to start their careers,” Ms O’Reilly said.
“Each of those graduates need to make sure they put their best foot forward during these meetings, and in others in the future, and we believe the sessions on Wednesday and Thursday will help them do that.”
