Addressing career challenges in a COVID world at RMIT MAEA 2021
Melbourne, Australia, September 2021 – As the employment world embraces a new normal, today’s students are at risk of being left behind. INVENIO addressed some of these challenges in the hiring landscape to RMIT students at the recent RMIT Mechanical & Automotive Engineering Association (MAEA) Industry Day 2021.
Organised by the MAEA of RMIT in collaboration with Females+ in RMIT Engineering, RMIT Mechatronics Student Association and the RMIT Engineering Management Club, the MAEA Industry Day 2021 was held in an online format where students could interact with representatives from 30 engineering companies to find out more about career and internship opportunities.
This year’s event, being held online for the second time, saw a bigger turnout with 20 per cent more attendees than last year. As a co-sponsor for the event, INVENIO’s Business Development Manager, Syed Asad Ali was invited as a panel speaker at a main stage event where he gave practical advice about establishing a career in a post-COVID environment.
“A core part of our ethos at INVENIO is preparing oneself for the future as employment opportunities will always change, whether it is through upskilling or having the foresight to prepare for industry trends,” said Syed.
“Students will have to navigate these trends, which is why it is always a privilege to speak at the RMIT MAEA Industry Day. We want students to be able to put their best foot forward in securing a career path in today’s employment environment.”
For Ryan Trinh, INVENIO’s Recruitment Manager, the event has been a valuable opportunity to connect with students and an insightful one.
“We have had long chats with several students at the Industry Day on how we could help them realise their opportunities in the engineering industry, and it is great to connect with promising talents as well as listen to their concerns and challenges,” added Ryan.
“While having onsite face-to-face conversations is much preferable to an online forum, we understand the limitations the organisers have to work with and applaud them for their effort and determination in organising this event. We are certainly looking forward to next year’s MAEA Industry Day.”
The RMIT MAEA Industry Day is one of many student-led events that is sponsored and supported by INVENIO. For more information on events, industry training, or recruitment opportunities, visit: www.invenio.com.au
