Share your career story with current Ivanhoe Girls’ students.

Each year, Ivanhoe Girls’ Grammar School runs a Careers Evening for students in Years 9-12 to hear from past students, industry professionals and university representatives about study and career pathways. This year the School is hosting an online Careers Week, providing access to webinars and resources for students.

One of the resources we would like to share with students are a series of short videos featuring individuals working in a variety of industries and roles. You can help our students learn about potential jobs and courses by recording a short video of yourself, talking about your career or pathway.

This year, we would also like to hear from alumni regarding their higher education experience to offer current students an insight into what their education journey may look like once they leave Ivanhoe Girls’.

Tips for recording your video:

  • Have a source of light (e.g. window or lamp) behind your computer, so your face is well-lit
  • Choose a background that is blank and uncluttered
  • Don’t worry about pauses or gaps, it doesn’t need to be perfect!
  • Capture your video in landscape format.

You can submit your recording two ways:

  1. Post your video on the Ivanhoe Girls’ Alumni feed
  2. Email alumni@ivanhoegirls.vic.edu.au

Please submit your video by Monday 14 June

Your video will be shared with students on hive, our private and secure learning management system. The School may wish to repurpose your video to share with a wider audience, such as past students. Please include a note with your submission if you would prefer your video not to be used for any purpose other than Careers Week.
