Working as a Career Ready Ambassador at Career Ready involves assisting students to connect with programs and services that will build their employability. Here are 6 reasons why I love my role.
As a part of the support that La Trobe offers you in your journey through university, we have created a program that will help you to develop the skills that a wide range of employers have told us that they need from graduates.
The program is called Career Ready Advantage. And the exciting thing is, that if you complete the Career Ready Orientation before the end of March, you will be in the draw to win one of these exciting prizes:
First prize: $1,000 STA Travel voucher
Second prize: Apple Watch
Third prize: $200 Visa card
Fourth prize: $100 La Trobe Co-Op voucher.
Through Career Ready Advantage, you can use a compilation of the experiential learning activities that you’ve undertaken and the skills and attributes you have developed to support your CV when you are applying for jobs. This is not only a way to build your skills, but it is a tool that will help you communicate your value and unique offering to potential employers.

The Career Ready Mentoring program will help undergraduate students prepare for careers in a broad range of professional/study areas. You will be matched with a La Trobe University alumni who has achieved success in their career. Through a series of structured tasks, you will collaborate with them on setting and achieving learning goals.
The program is 6 weeks long, beginning in November. You need to be available for regular meetings with your mentor, either in person or online.
To express your interest in joining the program, please fill out this Expression of Interest Form by 28 October.
If you have any questions, please contact Michael Healy, Careers and Employability Advisor.
