Job Skills Seminar 2011

The Job Skills Seminar was yesterday and we had a great turnout to the event once again with over 70 attending! We had two brilliant speakers, Shaun Pulman from University Careers Services and Marion Rogers from Tri-Tek Services. A big shout-out also has to go out to all the execs that turned up on the day to help out and those that helped in the days leading up to the event. Below you may download Shaun’s Powerpoint slides.

This is the second redesign of the website in the past two years and it is a significant one. Below you’ll hear about our design rationale, our design taste and why we think it’ll provide our IEEE members an unique experience, like nowhere else.
