Event Date: 
04 October 2016
BHP Billiton
Level 1, 125 St Georges Terrace
You are great at what you do, but your career seems to have stalled. How do you climb that next rung or switch gears and pursue a career in another industry- is that even possible?

It sure is and we’ve got plenty of practical advice for progressing your career. As a female working in a traditional field, how do you use your transferable skills to market yourself to a non-traditional industry or vice versa? We’ll cover this difficult question along with teaching you the best tips to network both online and in person, prepare your resume to cut through and gain attention and lots more!

This will be an interactive session with networking opportunities, so bring along your resume and leave with a wealth of knowledge from our special speaker for the evening, Teagan Dowler, Founder of the Blue Collared Woman.

Refreshments will be provided. Please note that spots are limited, and all ticket proceeds for this event will be donated to Our Watch, an independent non-profit initiative established to drive nation-wide change in the culture, behaviours and attitudes that underpin and create violence against women and their children.
