Sydney Talent - Experience is the difference

Posted By: Thomas Shaw, 9:00am Sunday 14 December 2008    Print Article

A new initative launched by the University of Sydney aims to bridge the gap between university studies and employment http://www.sydneytalent.com.au I am impressed by the marketing documents, clear and easy to use website as well as reasons behind forging industry and academic relationships.

SydneyTalent is a new initiative from the University of Sydney that connects outstanding students with potential employers for part-time and full-time employment as undergraduates, graduates and highly skilled postgraduates.

In its first three years, SydneyTalent anticipates placing 3,700 students. Among its aims,SydneyTalent is committed to:
  • Enhancing the experience of every student by providing the opportunity to complement academic studies with meaningful, paid employment, and life and work skills development
  • By connecting dedicated and ambitious students with employers, create ongoing relationships between students and industry that will reap immediate and future benefits
  • Improve student employability through SydneyTalent training programs that prepare students for the workplace environment
"The worst thing about hiring young people for a job is teaching them how to do their job. It takes weeks, sometimes months. And then, more than likely, they'll move on. What if there was a way you could hire smart, enthusiastic people, who are drilled in workplace basics before they even walk through your door? There is. With SydneyTalent."
