You may have been living in Perth for a week, a month, a year or even a decade.
But have you made the most of your new life in your new location?
Have you found new friends? Have you got the job you want or the job for now? Do you know what networks you can join? How do you find great places to go to and fabulous people to come with you?
Join us at this event where you will learn:
. Six Best Settlement Strategies
. Culture Shock - what is it and how to recognise the symptoms
Australian culture - understanding the basics
Job hunting - ways to find the work you want (despite your international background)
Information sources - the most reliable options
. Finding the networks you need
This informative event has been designed to help you learn more about living, working and networking in Perth and give you an opportunity to meet other people in the same situation.
You may like to bring your own business or personal card to share with other people you meet or a small notepad and pen if you are given information from others that you would like to keep.
We can host up to 10 guests, so please book early to avoid disappointment.
From 7:30pm you can participate in both business and social networking. If you are looking for work, it can be a great way to make contacts. It is also a great way to meet new people, of all ages, who may become your new friends.
This event replaces the former 'Welcome to Perth' events that were running on the Second Thursday of the month that started on 12 September 2008 and ran every month until 9 December 2010.
