PMY Blacks Academy Careers Night

28th April, 6.00pm-7.30pm  |  
Location: Melbourne University Oval Pavilion

The University Blacks are focused on helping our players become not only better footballers, but helping them along in their chosen career path.

The club would like to extend an invitation to all players and parents to come along to the PMY Blacks Academy Careers Night, which is a great opportunity for current university students  or recent graduates to learn more about job seeking and hear from experienced professionals in various areas of expertise.

The night will have a strong focus on networking and also plenty of advice on the do's and don'ts of job seeking for those who are about to (or just entering) the workforce.

We have some terrific speakers lined up, the majority of which are either current or ex-Blacks players. Several of our guests already employ players who have come through the club, and are keen to utilize their relationship with the University Blacks to continue to source quality employees for their businesses.
