Wrapping up ALIA SNGG September events:

September was a busy month for ALIA SNGG.  Canberra held a successful Key Selection Criteria Workshop, Melbourne ran a brilliant Interview Skills Seminar and Queensland hosted valuable Interview Skills Seminar, complete with a hands-on workshop where participants practiced the new skills they’d learned.
