Develop your soft skills virtually.
GradConnection, the organisation that powers La Trobe’s Employer Connect portal for students, has partnered with Inside Sherpa to create a FREE Virtual Work Readiness Program.
Why join this Virtual Experience Program?
Work-readiness skills are the behavioural skills that enable students to transition effectively into the world of work, and to rapidly add value to their organisations.
Research suggests these skills are vital under normal circumstances, with both employers and students citing them as desirable in enhancing performance and efficacy.
The current conditions due to Covid-19 make the already challenging transition from education to work even more ambiguous and difficult. Isolation, uncertainty and the prospect of working remotely require new, additional skills.
We are offering a range of free virtual experiences which are designed to arm you specifically with the work-readiness skills that will help you to navigate these challenging times, and empower you to thrive as you seek and secure placements, internships and graduate roles.
