Victoria: July Social Event Wrap Up

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!
