Young alumni and recent graduates.

On behalf of the Science, Health and Medicine alumni team, congratulations and welcome to the ANU alumni community!

Now that you have reached this milestone in your professional life journey, you may be wondering what's next? How do you balance work and life? Or how do you land your dream job? We want to help navigate you through some of these challenges as you begin taking the early steps in defining your career path.

Join us for Pathfinder, a breakfast mentoring event featuring undergraduate and postgraduate panel discussions, where you will hear from our experienced alumni who were in your shoes not so long ago.
