May updates from Talent

Good luck Danielle!

This month we’ll be saying goodbye to Danielle Rees from the Entry level Talent Program team. Danielle was responsible for the success of the Humanitarian cadet program, assisting in its inception and championing it for the past 2 years. Danielle has done an amazing job, running engaging monthly development sessions that never felt dull, with the positivity, wisdom and capable guidance that are a staple of her professional practice.

While teaching in Cambodia for six months, Danielle gained firsthand experience empowering communities with education. She took this knowledge back to Australia and was soon offered the opportunity to help refugees put their skills to use and enrich our country.

Danielle believes that a big part of leadership is recognising and fostering the skills of others. ‘If you’re working with people with highly developed technical skills that you may not have, don’t be intimidated, embrace their strengths. Leadership should focus on “opening doors” for others. You are there to help others realise their own potential and to enable their success.’

Thank you for your efforts and contributions to the ELTP, we will all miss you dearly!

Talent Catch-ups

Job Application Skills was the focus for the ELTP catch-up for May. This session covered the ins and outs of seeking a position, ensuring that talent program participants don’t make any job-hunting faux pas, and showcase themselves as the best candidate they can present. For Grads, the ELTP team switched it up, and instead of an information session based on professional practice, the team ran a highly-informative session framed around superannuation and personal finances.

Graduates often begin to think about leaving home or moving out for the first time as their degrees come to an end. This session provided invaluable tips for establishing a set of ground rules for spending and saving for the next significant purchase. An additional bonus was having a representative form First State Super to talk about how to set yourself up for retirement sensibly using your superannuation.

Here’s to many more informative and valuable talent catch-ups to come!
