Are you Career Ready?

Here’s three programs that will help you to be Career Ready!

Being career ready means developing your skills via a range of practical experiences and understanding how to manage your career going forward. You can build your career readiness via La Trobe employability programs that connect you with industry mentors and graduate recruiters and take part in real world industry experiences.

Global Victoria Intellect Program

You can also gain valuable experience by taking part in the Global Victoria Intellect Program, a two-week virtual industry experience that connects student teams with Victorian exporters to complete a real world domestic and international market research project. The beauty of this program is that you can be from any La Trobe campus or studying offshore (or onshore) to participate (subject to places available). Work as part of a team with current postgraduate and undergraduate students from La Trobe and other Victorian universities where a number of projects are on offer.
