PSI Book Club
PSI are starting a book club! We will be reading/discussing non-technical books relevant to our roles. Participants will be split into smaller groups to network with each other and practice exercises.
Virtual career events are online 'events' that allow exhibitors and students to meet in virtual environments such as through voice calls or video chat rooms, and offer a number of advantages to both students and exhibitors!
Students benefit by saving valuable time which can be used on exhibitor research and practicing elevator pitches. Moreover, students have the opportunity to meet with a wider range of exhibitors, some of whom may not have been able to attend our previous face-to-face events.
We will be working with Career Fair Plus to host our virtual exhibition session at our upcoming career event, to create an intuitive, user-friendly experience for students and exhibitors. Please download the Career Fair Plus app in preparation for the virtual event and check out this video demo to see how it works!
Don't forget to familiarise yourself with the important pre-event milestones to ensure you are all set up and ready to go for the day of the event!
Prior to the virtual exhibition session, our event will start with a live webinar including a panel discussion with some of our exhibitors.
