Get noticed by future employers with a Deakin Leadership Hallmark

When it comes to applying for jobs, internships, scholarships or awards, providing evidence of your transferable skills is essential for your success. That said, sometimes it can be tough to demonstrate these skills when you are still studying and looking to gain experience.

So how can you verify your professional competence to employers while you are still undertaking your course?
