Pathfinder - speed mentoring with alumni mentors

For later year students, graduates and young alumni in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics), the uncertainties of the future can seem daunting. What does a career in a particular field look like in reality? Is it time to undertake further study? What is the 'right' career path? A calm word of encouragement or advice is often all that is needed to help see your future more clearly. 

The Pathfinder program aims to connect you with STEM volunteer alumni mentors who will share their expertise, advice and encouragement on your career aspirations. This Pathfinder event will include an alumni panel discussion, information from the ANU Careers team, and the opportunity to network with alumni and industry professionals, keen to provide you with advice and support. 

Join us on Friday, 25 Aug from 8-9:30am for a light breakfast to kick-start the next chapter of your career journey. Don’t forget to bring your resume, any questions, and an open mind.

Panel Speakers include:

Ben Gill – BEng ’16, BSc ’16

Amir Hadad – PhD ‘11

Shamaruh Mirza – PhD ’10

Nicole Foronda – Min&DevEc ’20

We look forward to seeing you there!
