Hey guys, it’s been a while since you’ve heard from us and we sincerely apologise for that. We’ve been so busy over the last few months that we just haven’t had the time to write on our blog. To give you guys a quick catch up on the developments of the last few months:
- Real Skills has expanded to become a team of 16 members with a new finance and HR manager
- We’ve revamped our website (as you can see) and trying to bring more content to you guys
- We’re currently in the process of reaching out to more partners to help us with our upcoming STEM Leaders Program (which by the way, applications are open now so go do them!). We’d also like to welcome back Aquamonix, Dematic and Wattblock as returning partners for our July STEM Leaders Program.
Going forward you can definitely expect to hear more from us on the blog, our plan is to post weekly regarding topics such as developments within the STEM field, job opportunities for STEM students and professional development tips so make sure you check out our Facebook page and our website weekly to keep up to date! We are still running our professional development workshops throughout the semester and as always they are free so make sure you like our Facebook page to get the latest updates on when those are occurring so that you can be ready for your next job interview. Our highly anticipated STEM Leaders Program is right around the corner so if you haven’t applied yet then be sure to check it out here so you don’t miss out on an amazing opportunity to network with industry leaders and work on real-life engineering projects. Applications are currently open and will stay open for another two weeks so make sure you apply and don’t miss out! Mr Ross McIntyre (Chief Data Officer at Wattblock) had this to say about Real Skills Education following their involvement with the last STEM Leaders Program:
“Real Skills Education is a brilliant idea that has been really well executed. It’s just perfect for start-ups like us. Right now start-up co-working spaces are starting to form on university campuses, which makes it even more convient to access motivated talent. We happen to be ‘catalysts in residence’ at the UNSW Michael Crouch Innovation Centre (MCIC) which has just expanded to host 11 other start-up companies. There is a big shift taking place and I think Real Skills Education is really going to ramp up quickly”
