SYMPOSIUM 2017 | Ingrid Culos

Who You Are
I am Ingrid Culos, Co-founder of Italian professionals in Sydney. I am a Social Researcher and I have a background as European Project Manager. In Australia I have been working in the Education Industry since 2014.

What Your Presentation Was About
During the 2017 Symposium I have introduced the main goals and activities of the group and some of the results of a recent survey we have conducted via our facebook page on our community.

Main Ideas You Would Like Us To Retain
The main results of our survey regard the expectations of people getting in contact with us: the majority of them would like from us to create networking events, then they look for support for job seeking. Respondents who are also sole traders or business owners are interested on having some support on promotional aspects and legislation. Many young professionals focus on the Recognition of Prior learning and qualifications as their primary need: they are seeking for better and deeper understanding on the procedures and on their possibilities here in Australia. The group of Italian Professionals will take into account these matters for their future activities.

Your Advice
To keep the facebook page and the website alive through fresh information for young professionals. Keeping the social media attractive for them, means to have a committed community ready to create exchange and networking events.
