  • The second Charles Sturt University Alumni/Student Mentoring Night will be held in Wagga Wagga
  • Nursing, education, graphic design, social sciences, and radiography alumni on discussion panel
  • The event is at the Convention Centre from 6pm on Wednesday 6 August

Current Charles Sturt University (Charles Sturt) students worrying about life after graduating will have their minds put at ease at the second Alumni/Student Mentoring Night in Wagga Wagga on Wednesday 6 August.

The event will feature a panel of alumni to speak to students about their first-hand experiences on gaining employment after finishing their degree.

Alumni from the fields of nursing, education, graphic design, social sciences , and radiography have already agreed to participate, with organisers looking for more to speak at the event.

Charles Sturt’s alumni relations officer Mrs Sheridan Ingold said the mentoring night will give students the chance to appreciate the value of their degree.

“These students are studying and wondering what that will look like in five years’ time,” Mrs Ingold said.

“The idea is to bridge that gap and not make the big, wide world so scary.”

Students participate in mentoringMrs Ingold said alumni are willing to volunteer to assist current students struggling to connect study to work life.

“We are finding that our alumni are really wanting to give back,” Mrs Ingold said.

“It’s easy for alumni to remember what it was like for them when they were students.”

Third-year Bachelor of Agricultural Science student Miss Ella Corbett is co-ordinating the student aspect of the event.

Miss Corbett said, “Students see graduation as the end game but are unsure on how to gain employment.

“Courses such as radiography and agricultural science have different specialisations, and alumni are in the perfect position to mentor and inform students about how to choose a field of interest appropriate to their degrees.”
