Informed proud to support UTS Students Developing their employability Skills at Networking Workshops

Informed Solutions was delighted to be invited to work with students at the University of Technology Sydney (UTS), helping to develop their employability skills. UTS is rated the top young university in Australia, is one of the top 200 universities worldwide and is also one of Informed’s key global University Alliance partners.

In recent weeks, Julia Woodcock, Informed’s Talent Development Manager has contributed to a number of networking events at the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) supported by other members of Informed’s Sydney office team (including James Miller and Sanjay Govindan). 

The UTS students are currently participating in an extra-curricular award programme called ‘UTS Accomplish’: a year-long engagement designed to develop their skills, knowledge and experience in order to enhance employability.  Through a series of interactive workshops, experiential events, and employability hours, students can improve their confidence while gaining practical and industry-relevant skills that could help them stand out from the crowd. 

Working directly with employers, the students attended networking workshops which provided a great opportunity to build their business skills and confidence. From Informed’s perspective, the sessions also offered a great opportunity to speak directly with students, sharing insights and expertise and discussing the projects we are involved with.  It also generated a lot of interest in our graduate scheme, which offers the best science students the opportunity to diverge from the subject of their major. 

The Informed team were very impressed by the commitment, energy and engagement of the students that we had the pleasure of meeting, who were taking time out of their semester break to make a real investment in their future.

Informed’s Talent Development Manager Julia Woodcock said;

“We are extremely proud to work with UTS Careers and take very seriously the task of supporting the development of bright young talent into capable future professionals.  Networking is a key skill that every professional should acquire as part of their development and we wish every success to this latest group of UTS Accomplish students in the hope that they will continue to evolve as future leaders of tomorrow. ”
