NSW/ACT Job Show 2017

NB: Registrations are still open until Friday midnight, however, I'm not in the office on Friday as I'm bumping in the Job Show all day so no confirmation letters will be sent if you've registered after 3pm 21 Sept. Please register and come on the day. You'll need to sign in on Saturday on the Sign on Sheets.
Thanks, Caroline 


The NSW/ACT Branch invites 3rd and 4th year Under Grads; 1st and 2nd year GEMs and New Graduates to attend the NSW/ACT Job Show 2017.

The Show provides a fantastic opportunity for students and new grads to speak with prospective employers about employment options and new graduate opportunities in 2018.

We have around 70 exhibitors encompassing employers of graduate physios from both the public and private sectors and from metro and regional NSW that will be present, including hospitals, private practices, recruitment services and overseas volunteer organisations specialising in physiotherapy services.

We have a Lecture Series running alongside the exhibition. The program includes important topics such as:

  • The transition and challenges a new graduate perspective
  • Interview skills, job applications, cover letters: public vs private practice
  • An open forum on working in private practice
  • NSW Hospitals Physiotherapy New Graduate Allocation Program
  • Post graduate courses: making you more employable (and a better clinician)


and much more.

You do need to register to attend the exhibition and the lectures, so make sure you secure your place early as lectures book out quickly.

 

When you pick your lectures remember you need time to also walk around and talk to the exhibitors who are there to speak about job opportunities.

Post graduate courses: making you more employable (and a better clinician) As well as being a published author and educator, Thuy is a "professional student", having made it her goal to attend at least one course series and learn at least one new technique every single year since she graduated in the late 1990's. So what is the difference between fascial manipulation and visceral manipulation? Should you learn about Pilates before anatomy trains? Where do Mulligans, MET and Dry Needling fit into the picture? Join Thuy for a discussion on where these courses sit on your professional development timeline and ensure you stand out to employers.
