genYOU Inspire 2018

Imagine if you received a toolbox, one which would not only help you secure the job you really want, but also be awesome at it! We’re not just talking about technical knowledge (you probably have that already), but the additional traits, attitudes and skills which will help you to stand out of the crowd. That skills toolbox is generationYOU.


Proudly supported by Brisbane City Council, genYOU Inspire is a series of short events that bring together local legends with a single goal – to help Brisbane’s young people unleash their potential at work and in life!

Our next event | How to ensure your career is on the right track.

Date: Wednesday October 10th
Time: 5.30pm – 7.30pm
Where: Level 2, The Capital, 155 Queen Street
>> More information on this session here.

Please Note: Our genYOU Inspire events are created for and aimed at young adults (namely 17 – 25year olds). Our events consistently sell out and we want to ensure seats are kept for our target audience – so if you are worried you don’t quite fit the bill shoot us an email at and we’d be happy to chat about it!

Five Inspiring Events:

*** SOLD OUT *** How to create a CV and Cover Letter for maximum impact. Whether you are looking for your first job, a part time role, internship or tips to progress onto your second role, this session is about the two key tools that will help you get your foot in the door – namely your CV and cover letter.

*** SOLD OUT *** Learn how to network like a pro. Whilst there is an art to networking, the challenge is in maintaining and growing relationships that matter. Irrespective of whether you are a student, graduate, first jobber or school leaver, being able to leverage your connections is a skill that will benefit you for life.

*** SOLD OUT *** Enterprise skills: what they are and why you need them. Securing a job isn’t enough anymore. Success comes from making yourself valuable, solving problems, being efficient and generating results (even in part time roles). To do this, your skills’ toolbox needs to be strong in areas such as leadership, communication, emotional intelligence and creative thinking.

*** SOLD OUT *** Building an outstanding personal brand. Your personal brand is the most powerful asset that you will carry with you throughout your life. It often precedes you and is certainly what people will remember.

How to ensure your career is on the right track. Whilst skills and experience are important – your career starts with YOU. This session will help us ask some tough questions – around what a career really is, how your work can form part of a happy and fulfilling life, how you can advance your career, how to upskill and change careers and more.
