The Problems We're Addressing
Tuesday, 19 October at 11:00am
Join Outcome.Life, Study Melbourne and industry leaders for an important discussion on changing the narrative around employment outcomes for international students and graduates in Victoria. Together, we can do better.
International students and graduates in Victoria are facing high unemployment rates after their investment in their higher education as well as continued barriers to skilled work as the economy recovers and opens up. At the same time, short-sighted policy settings are promoting opportunities to place students in low-skilled and low-paid casusal and seasonal work to solve Australia’s critical labour market shortages.
It’s time to break the barriers to employment for international students and create better pathways and opportunities for our highly-skilled talent pool. In this Career Catalyst industry forum, we will address the challenges and discuss the opportunities for change that exist for government, industry, and international students.
Join us. Become part of the solution.
