On a chilly winter’s evening last week Victoria ALIA Students and New Graduates Group had their July social event around a cosy corner table at Captain Melville. Though the weather outside was cold, all who attended were in high spirits and enjoyed the evening thoroughly. It was wonderful to catch up with familiar faces and to meet some new ones.
Although we all know that networking is something we should be doing, it can seem daunting at times. Because of this we try to make our monthly social events a fun and pressure-free way to connect with other new and future information professionals over some food and drinks. Everyone is always very friendly and conversation is wide ranging – it’s not always work talk we promise!
Our next event will be our tool building seminar on interview skills, so keep an eye on the ALIA SNGG social channels for details and we hope to see you there!

Was your New Years Resolution for 2017 to read more books? Ours was! That is why Students and New Grads Queensland is creating a brand new book club, Bookaholics Anonymous (a drinking club with a reading problem). This one is a little different to your normal book club… You can read whatever you want when you want, just make sure it fits one of the 40 popsugar categories from their 2017 reading challenge! The book club will meet every 2 months in Brisbane CBD so you get a chance to meet other awesome book fans and have drink or two (or three…).
If you are interested in joining, head to the Facebook page for more information or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to get your name on the list. Our location will change for every meeting so keep an eye on Facebook or email list to get updates. If you want to come along to our first meeting and see what we are all about the details are below:
When: Thursday 19th January, 6:30pm-7:30pm
