Networking Event – Finding Work in Australia



With the valuable participation of Rachel Davis as the main speaker and organised by the Venezuelan Association of Australia, we are delighted to invite our community to this networking event, oriented to help Venezuelans and individuals from other migrant communities to overcome the challenges overseas professionals face when looking for a job in Australia.

Some of the topics that we’ll be discussing in the event are:

  • How to find the right job?
  • How to make your application stand out?
  • How to create a winning impression?
  • How to maximise your employability?
