ICMS student volunteers gained invaluable experience at the recent World Business Forum that took place in Sydney from 31 May to 1 June.
The international conference, held at The Star Event Centre, bought global business leaders, CEOs and sought after speakers together. ICMS volunteers were right in the thick of the action, working with the team that hosts the WBF in Sydney.
A number of students have volunteered at the WBF over the past three years, and five ICMS students have undertaken their two terms of Industry Training placement there. Some students have been employed after their placement has finished. WBF has a good relationship with ICMS, having hosted stalls at the college’s career expos and having held separate information sessions to engage with ICMS students.
ICMS values on-the-job training experience and 100% of ICMS students graduate with industry experience. The ICMS Industry Training team said almost 90% of students have a job in their field before they graduate. The volunteer program at WBF is just one example of how ICMS gives its students every opportunity to enter the job market upon graduation, having broadened their outlook and taken part in the global economic conversation.
