ECU recently held a joint event with the Australian Institute of Project Management (AIPM), focusing on the challenges faced by students in navigating the corporate and Australian cultural landscape. A panel of experts was assembled to share their knowledge and experience with students, and to answer their questions on this important topic.
Information was provided to students which would assist them transition from being a student to a role in the corporate world, which is often a challenging experience particularly for students from overseas countries.
Speakers at the event included; Keith Chidley (MAIPM CPPE), Gordon Bateup (MAIPM), Sara Salamone and Shamida Sumansinghe, a former ECU student who has achieved success in a local organisation since recently completing his studies.
The panel session was attended by current students, alumni and staff, and food and refreshments were offered to attendees while they networked among speakers and project practitioners.
