Orientation

To set you up for career success, Navitas Professional welcomes all participants with an orientation. The orientation covers an overview of your enrolled program, the different support services we provide and participant expectations. Some of these include:

  • Code of conduct: expectations of our participants, trainers and staff during your work-readiness training.
  • Student services: financial aid, counselling, complaints and appeals, etc.
  • Navitas policies and documents and where to find them.
  • Introducing the suite of platforms participants are expected to use throughout the program, such as the participant portal, Moodle and SONIA.
  • Access to Navitas’ exclusive resume builder myNavCV.
  • Introduction and expectation of the internship placement transition process.

Social activities & events

Creating rapport with fellow Navitas Professional participants is an important part of our programs. We seek to provide fun, interactive activities and events for you to socialise with each other, your trainers and support staff as you go through your career journey with us. These activities and events also provide a glimpse into the Australian workplace culture, which includes:

  • Kahootz quizzes, charades and bingo activities
  • sausage sizzles (an Australian barbecue)
  • cultural events such as Easter, Halloween, Christmas and other cultural days
  • charity & supportive events such as “R U OK” day, Bridge to Brisbane, Room to Read and Classroom of Hope
  • Career Assistance Workshops.

Networking events

With the ever-competitive job market, Navitas Professional understands the importance of networks. As networking can provide you with opportunities to learn from industry leaders, meet new associates and find future employment.

We encourage all program participants to attend networking events (for some programs, this is a requirement) so that they learn how to do this naturally and effectively. Professional Year participants must attend at least two networking events as part of their work-readiness training. Common events our participants join are:

  • CPA Career Expos
  • CAA Evening Events
  • EEA Chartered Workshop
  • ACS Branch Forums

Ongoing career counselling

We offer all Navitas Professional program participants and graduates ongoing career counselling before and during the program, and after graduation.

In enrolling in our programs, our industry placement experts will:

  • conduct preliminary interviews to assess communication and interview skills and provide advice and feedback
  • review, assist and offer advice for your resume
  • create a customised internship training plan with you and your host company mentor
  • match your internship placement to your field of study
  • conduct reviews of your internship experience and feedback.

After you graduate from Navitas Professional, you are always welcome to keep in contact with our team for career advice, resume feedback and other career assistance.
