CHARTERED ACCOUNTANTS Australia and New Zealand –

CADETSHIPS AND WORK PLACEMENT SCHOLARSHIPS

The best way to find the path to success is to speak to those who have walked it. That’s why we’re bringing together some of the most successful professionals from across Australia to answer your questions about the world of business, and how you can shape it. We’re calling it ‘Meet the Business Leader’ – and it’s designed to give you an insight into what a successful career in business could look like. Meet the Business Leader, formerly known as Cadetship Evening, is the perfect opportunity for Year 12 students to connect with employers who offer a structured cadetship opportunity. A cadetship gives you practical on-the-job experience while studying, so you complete your Business or Commerce degree with greater employment opportunities – potentially a graduate role. You’ll be able to ask them questions like:

  • Where’s the best place to do a cadetship locally?
  • What skills should I be trying to develop?
  • What advice do the business leaders wish they had received at the start?
  • What should I study, and where?

To make sure speak to the people who will help you make the right education and career choices, register today for this FREE event. Dress code: Smart casual or school uniform.
