22 PANEL Q and A Dr Blake Hamilton Clinical Psychologist & Research Associate Rebecca Mallia-Blanco Acting Regional Manager and Psychologist/Rehabilitation Consultant Tamara Cakman Consultant, Page Personnel Ms Despina Sfakinos PhD Student, Job Capacity Assessor/Psychologist at Centrelink 43 TOP TIPS FROM THE SPEAKERS 4 Barbara Mackie, Career Development Officer Careers Centre

23 BLAKE HAMITLON TOP TIPS Enthusiasm often trumps experience It s not too early to find a niche find something you are really interested in Seek out experiences work experience, voluntary work; get involved in whatever you can 45 REBECCA MALLIA-BLANCO TOP TIPS Trust your intuition If you think your first graduate job is not exactly what you had hoped but you feel positive about it, then trust your hunches. Don t expect the job to progress your career directly or immediately. However, if you are enjoying the experience, then use the opportunity to explore possibilities. Being in a helping profession is exceptionally rewarding. You will be helping people in a way that is unique and professionally satisfying. Your job will be interesting and full of learning and development. If you are unhappy in a job, don t stay 46

24 TAMARA CAKMAN TOP TIPS Linked-in Set yourself up a professional network of contacts. Referrals through friends and peers are incredibly effective at securing interviews and roles, don t look down on nepotism! Interview Try to understand the purpose of the interview and make your skills and experience relevant to the role and the company s values. Your motivation for the job and goals coupled with your match with the team are just as important as your knowledge base. A degree will get you through the door, however the way you conduct yourself at interview stage is crucial. Plan ahead Sit down and think about long term goals i.e. 5 year plan. Explore what kind of company, industries and roles you want to move into so that you eventually reach that plan. Approach those companies or have agents do so on your behalf. 47 TOP TIPS DESPINA SFAKINOS Get organized No study is ever a waste of time Learn to use Endnote 48

25 BARBARA MACKIE TOP TIPS Follow your career interests and passion Ask yourself what drives you. What motivates you? For example: research, working with clients and their families, designing new tools and interventions, investigation, analysis, education, assessment, performance, prevention, behaviour, rehabilitation, development Planned happenstance Keep an open mind about opportunities and chance events. Have conversations with people that may lead to a new idea about your career direction. Make things more likely to happen by getting involved, asking questions, joining professional bodies and engaging with your studies Don t diagnose your friends and family! Learn to listen and listen well. 49 DAVID BURROWS TOP TIPS Get involved and gain experience Do subjects you enjoy Be flexible with your plans Disability Employment Internship 50
