Through volunteering for charities and not-for-profit organisations, students can gain extra skills that employers seek in their candidates, while also taking part in an experience that is personally rewarding. Join us prior to the UQ Volunteering Expo, as we discuss how volunteering can increase your employability, and hear some real stories and tips on how to get the most out of your experience. 

This panel discussion will include panelists from very well known not-for-profit organisations which all work in different ways to assist our community and society.
