Career Practitioners' Seminar 2019

We would like to extend a huge thank you to all who attended our recent Career Practitioners’ Seminar on Thursday 21 February.

The theme for the day was inspired by our latest brand campaign ‘Be Ready’ and showcased the many ways we are preparing our students for career success. This included a presentation from John Devereaux, Executive Director, Deakin Student Life about our tailored student support services and the impact these have on a student’s overall university experience. Our support services are a key contributor to Deakin continuing to be the #1 university in Victoria for student satisfaction.*

Attendees also heard from Cr Jake Keogh, a current Deakin student and Elly McLean, a recent Deakin alumni about how Deakin has enabled them to take on their career with confidence.

Attendees also explored our Melbourne Burwood Campus in a range of interactive and engaging workshops that showcased many of the state-of-the-art facilities available to students.
