  • Valuable tips in overcoming uncertainty in career planning
  • How to gather experiences such as internships whilst studying
  • Other ways to build your employability
  • How to build professional relationships
  • Connecting with the Careers and Employability team for advice and support along the way

Speakers:

  • Pooja Davda earned her MIS from The University of Melbourne (UoM) in 2018 and her B.E from RVCE in India, 2016. She then went ahead and co-founded Zeropoint Robotics and has been working in the Industrial Robotics space ever since. The inspiration came from her father who has over 25 years of Entrepreneurial experience himself. During her time at UoM, Pooja actively engaged with professionals from various cultures and backgrounds by leveraging the free university resources. One of the highlights of her professional life in Melbourne was working with the kids at Code Camp. This combined her passion for teaching and her Tech background. When not working and networking, Pooja can be found creating paintings with some chill lo-fi music playing in the background.
