GAP is a career and professional development opportunity not to be missed. Fully resourced by the UNSW Co-op Program and our industry partners, GAP is a free program for students.
Employers are looking for graduates that have the edge; good technical skills with the business aptitude to match. Our industry partners are interested in your professional development and aim to improve skills in communication, leadership, problem-solving, initiative, presentation, enterprise, organisation, and time and self-management. This program will help you get a step ahead of the competition.
Upon successful completion, students will be awarded a certificate recognising the achievement. This is a great addition to a CV and will be highly regarded by industry partners. GAP will also be recorded on your supplementary transcripts as an extracurricular activity.
Learn the importance and power of networking. Networking does not only play an important part in your job search, but will follow you throughout your entire career. There will be plenty of opportunities for networking with peers and industry representatives from all levels – first year graduates, hiring managers through to Partners. By the end of the week, networking is truly a skill you will have improved on through plenty of practice.
All of GAP’s industry partners are offering internships over the summer break. GAP students are strongly encouraged to apply for these internships and can get relevant information on the recruitment process and requirements directly from the recruiters on the last day of the GAP program.
