CareerSeekers Leadership Development Institute conference
Members of the Bennelong Foundation and Bennelong Funds Management team had the opportunity to volunteer as table moderators at the CareerSeekers New Australian Internship Program Leadership Development Institute conference. The event is a two-day national gathering of CareerSeekers participants that involves professional development and community-building activities. CareerSeekers supports newly arrived university students and mid-career professionals gain access to the corporate sector via paid internships. Over 200 inspiring and skilled professionals attended the conference - they are highly motivated to commence their careers in Australia, but in need of an opportunity to gain local experience.
