How to hustle your way into a job.
Beating down intense competition for that job is no mean feat. You need to stand out at every touch point, whether it is through a form, cover letter, CV, interview or other application element.

It’s not simply about ticking boxes or even about skills. It’s about demonstrating to the hirer that you are motivated, driven and understand how you can add value to organisation (and selfishly to the manager).

Proudly presented by Brisbane City Council.

Brisbane City Council is committed to nurturing innovation and investing in a strong economy with more jobs right across Brisbane. The 2021 genYOU Inspire program offers young people opportunities to develop their employment skills and make an immediate impact for our city's local businesses.

About genYOU Inspire

genYOU Inspire is a series of short events that aim to help Brisbane's young people unleash their potential at work and in life. 

Now in its fourth year, genYOU has never been more relevant. After an exceptionally tough 2020, our 2021 Inspire series is built to help young people stand out of the crowd by giving them the chance to learn additional traits, attitudes and skills which are necessary to thrive in the workplace.

Through the genYOU Inspire series we are able to connect students with industry legends who share #NoFilter advice on entering the workplace and the skills they need to create and manage a successful career.

Please note all generationYOU events have been specifically designed for young people (17-25) to get the most out of their transition from education into the workforce. If you'd like to attend but don't fall into this category - please drop us a line on hello@generationyou.com.au

Who is generationYOU?
Over the past 6 years, generationYOU has created a thriving community of young people: students, graduates, young professionals, school leavers and dreamers, with one thing in common >> a strong desire to unleash their potential at work (and in life)!

Our role is to facilitate the sharing of knowledge from the experienced (think managers, mentors and entrepreneurs) to the inexperienced (Australia’s youth, aka you). We do this through original content, events & conferences.

The focus is on employability, entrepreneurship, skills development and career management which will not only benefit young adults themselves, but also their employers and communities.

Does it matter what degree I'm studying?
Regardless of your degree or ideal job, our sessions are applicable to everyone! Our sessions cover skills that everyone needs regardless of their future of current role.
Is there a dress code?
There isn’t a strict dress code to abide by, however wearing smart casual attire is definitely the recommended outfit of the day... AKA dress for comfort with a little bit of style!
I can't make it for the whole session, can I still come?
Absolutely. Whilst we would love for you to join us for the whole session, we understand that sometimes you have commitments that just can’t move. You will be able to arrive late to a session and leave early.
I'll be attending alone, is that okay? 
Unlike formal, there is absolutely no shame in flying solo. Coming alone can actually force you to meet new people and put your new-found networking skills to the test!
