    I don't really see the point of taking a resume. Probably better just to use it as networking.

    Nah. At best you might get one linkedin connection lmao(and that too with a fellow student, rather than one of the delegates or whatever). Its just a thing to talk to recruiters/employees and understand more about the processes and the companies involved from my understanding

    Re: MQ Chatter Thread

    Hey, so today was kind of tough at uni. I was called 'immoral' by another student (for the stupidest stuff) and just treated me poorly, claiming I was saying things. Like, so many logical fallacies. The tutor did nothing.

    I want to drop the subject, but its a core for one of my majors. I'm just feeling really down and disillusioned with politics subjects atm. My interest in history has come back, which is great. Modern History and IR are run by the same department, but they attract very different types of people.

    Hey, don't worry about what others think about you. Just keep studying the subject. I really believe you will pull through. You got this!!

    Re: MQ Chatter Thread

    The BUSL251 page doesn't seem very well structured so I'm not sure if we'll have readings or not i.e. if i have to buy the textbook, has anyone done this unit before?

    ACCG250 doesn't seem to have a open book test anymore so maybe no textbook?

    ACCG200 seems to be the only textbook I need to buy as per usual with ACCG units that use textbook questions.

    ACCG200 seems to be the only textbook I need to buy as per usual with ACCG units that use textbook questions.

    i) BUSL251 Is a new unit, they have combined BUSL250, and BUSL301
    BUSL301 I heavily used the two textbooks at the time. I also think they may let you now take the textbook into the exam, which may be useful. I can't tell you whether buying the textbook is essential or not.

    ii) ACCG250 still has the assessed coursework(during tutorials), they expect you to do readings, and sometimes its a case study so you'll need to and can't make it up. They don't mention whether you can bring in notes, they just say "There will be no time to consult with the book or other resources during the tutorial". Check with your tutor if you are allowed to bring in textbook/notes. Plus most of the multiple choice come from the book for the final exam.

    Re: MQ Chatter Thread

    I got selected to represent Macquarie Uni in a Canberra delegation (it's one of those GLP symposium things)

    I spent 2017 not doing much, so I'm trying to make myself more ~employable~ and make the most of my MQ experience. My grades are modest, nothing special, nothing bad. If anyone has any advice about grad applications next year, please tell me!

    Re: MQ Chatter Thread

    Hey! Thanks for your response, I'll keep what you said in mind.

    Well, I have some overseas activities I'm thinking about and have applied to (July Language Exchanges, as I'm currently doing a language unit), and I've found some opportunities for ~leadership~ and I'm applying to internships. I've got an appointment with one of the staff members on Thursday to discuss a leadership idea I have. So I think I'm on the right track?

    The GLP is alot of work, lol. But it's not bad if you don't complete it, because what you have done you can just put on your resume. It's a 'you get what you put in' kind of thing. It also helps if its relevant to your study- I'm lucky, cause it is. I can get 40 points just by doing a modern language and an 'international' subject. Worth 20 xp each.

    I might attend some events hosted / promoted by careerhub in the next couple of months. My resume needs a clean-up, and so do my interview techniques (phone interviews esp where I come across as deranged and weird...).

    Yeah I just put on the activities that is attended and the seminars of gone too. Extra curriculars help such as joining a society, playing a sport, volunteering etc. Not all down to marks. Interviews is just practice. Practice a lot of behavioural type questions if u get spare time ots good practice. And yeah just apply everywhere, job hunting cam get really disheartening but at the end u get in somewhere sometimes when u least expect it

    Under my skills and how playing team sport developed my communication and team work skills. That shows I have skills appropriate for the job and ALSO that I've done EC's to back them up. Half my interview was about cricket

    Re: MQ Chatter Thread

    A general question to anyone who may know: Am I able to do the 'expect to complete' form early? Like, after Session 1 results are released? It's just I'm applying for an internship around August and they require your completion dates on your transcript.
