Professional Readiness for Near and New Graduates

Every year new graduates enter the workforce filled with excitement, anticipation and trepidation.  It’s a time where everything is new and unfamiliar – a time where attitudes are shaped and habits formed.

From Campus to Corporate is a seminar specifically designed to enable new graduates and recruits to make the transition from the casual lifestyle of university to the corporate corridors smooth and stress-free.  It will create a sound foundation from which new graduates can launch their career, and instill in them the ethics, attitudes and dresscode essential to become an effective member of a professional and effective team.
