Amazing Careers Night

We had a very successful ACS event in Melbourne organized by the Young IT group. The unparalleled quality of the night created so much value for the attendees.

Representatives from companies (Hays, IBM, PriceWaterhouseCoopers, Accenture, NAB and Object Consulting ) explained the things they look for when hiring a potential candidate, opportunities available for students, graduates and young professionals, Graduate Hiring Programs and tips on how candidates can be successful in securing the job they want.

In addition to the above industry leading companies, the participants also had the honour of listening to the chief guest Ian Dennis, Chair ACS Victorian Board. They also had the opportunity of meeting up with Yohan Ramasundara, Director Young IT professionals Board. The company presentations were followed with a panel discussion which allowed the audience to ask questions as well as have a discussion on their concerns. The lively networking event at the end was used by young professionals to clarify their questions and also to build essential relationships with each other as well as representatives of participating leading companies.

The event was a great success with well over 225 people attending in a house full event.
