Amanda Davenport
Chair
Pronouns: she/her

I am studying a Master of Commerce majoring in Professional Accounting. Having benefited from employability services offered by UQ throughout my undergraduate program into postgraduate studies I’m excited to promote student employability and create opportunities for continuous improvement. As part of the Student Employability Advisory Group I’m most looking forward to hearing directly from other students and helping them get the most out of their university experience. If you want to grow your employability, but don’t know where to start feel free to reach out to hear about my experiences with student exchange, student staff partnerships and internships. Your feedback will help us provide recommendations directly from the student perspective to the teams within Student Enrichment and Employability Development at UQ.

Hi! I’m in my final year of study in a Bachelors of Occupational Therapy with the goal of graduating and working in mental health. I’ve been fortunate enough to have been involved in a number of student representative roles in my time at UQ and I think there are so many opportunities available to add value to your degree here. I’m a strong advocate for the student voice which is why I wanted to be a part of this advisory group in 2021. If you have any questions, queries, thoughts or theories I’d love to hear them all!
