Navigating graduate and intern positions in economics


From: Thursday March 12, 2020, 4:30 pm

To: Thursday March 12, 2020, 6:00 pm

Advertisements for graduate positions and internships open before the university term even begins and can seem to follow a long and confusing process.

The Women in Economics Network wants to support university students studying economics to understand the opportunities available to undertake graduate and internship programs, and how the application process works.

Come and join us for a panel discussion with current graduates who have survived the process in government and the private sector and two experts in the process. There will also be time for you to meet other students.
