Career tools

Explore how you can get the most out of your career through hands-on workshops, and online tools and techniques offered by the University of Auckland Business School Alumni office.

Career development is the ongoing process of managing your life, learning and work. It involves developing the skills and knowledge that enable you to plan and make informed decisions about your education, training and career choices. Fostering an attitude of appreciation for lifelong learning is the key to workplace success and we want to help you with your journey.

Career workshops

Each year, the Business School alumni team hosts career workshops for alumni and friends of the school. Presented by the Alumni Office and ASB Careers Centre, these professional development workshops will strengthen your competitive edge in the job market. In 2016 we began to film these workshop sessions so you can follow along at home and use these techniques and tips to develop your professional skills and career opportunities.

This video series from the University of Auckland Business School Alumni team explores how you can get the most out of your career.
