             ‘Career Ready hones in
             on your existing work
             experience, connecting the
             dots from what you’ve done
             to what employers are looking
             for. I really love the program
             because it’s genuine. The
             Career Ready team definitely
             care about whether we get
             jobs, and because of that
             I really felt that La Trobe
             was invested in me.

             I highly recommend
             Career Ready. It does make
             a difference and it will set
             you apart. If you’re feeling
             unprepared, or you don’t
             know what to do to land
             a job, it’s such a great program
             to tap into.’
