Successful Career Development

St Mark’s recently welcomed back Old Collegian and Career Coach, Mr Richard Brown, for a special session with students, “Creating an Effective Resume: Your 6 Seconds of Fame”.

Richard was a student at St Mark’s during his studies at Adelaide University in 1980-1982.

As an Associate with ThoughtConnect, Richard provides a range of services to help people take control of their careers, including: career transition strategies; resume and CV services; LinkedIn profiles; interview techniques; performance coaching; and mentoring.

Richard’s session was well attended and very well received. The students are keen to have him back to present further sessions, to arm them with the tools and techniques that will help them stand out in the career marketplace.

The successful transition of our students from university to a career is a key strategic focus for St Mark’s, with the expansion of our professional development and professional mentoring programs high on the agenda.

Richard is a highly-valued partner in that enterprise and we are delighted to have him involved with the College again.
