AALA National Digital Events Series - Career Workshop Series - Written Applications

  • 20 Aug 2020
  • 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
  • Online Zoom Meeting


Registration is closed
  • The AALA invites you to attend the first session in its Career Workshop Series, on the topic of written applications.

The Career Workshop Series is an initiative specifically targeted at law students and graduates from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds (CALD). It is intended to equip them with tangible career-oriented skills and knowledge, in order to help them overcome the additional obstacles faced in the job-hunting process associated with being from CALD backgrounds, and indeed, leverage their cultural backgrounds as a source of competitive advantage.

Specifically, this session will cover the following:

  • CVs/resumes;
  • cover letters;
  • questions; and
  • psychometric testing.

This session will feature guest speaker Jeffrey Tan, a Legal Recruitment Consultant at Mahlab (and former commercial lawyer) who works with lawyers seeking in-house, government and private practice roles. Originally being from Malaysia, Jeffrey has a strong cultural understanding.

There will be a 1 hour presentation, followed by 30 minutes of Q&A.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to submit a resume and cover letter for review and feedback after the session.

If you have any queries, please contact Kelvin Ng at students@aala.org.au.
