ASA’s flagship event Corporate Cocktails successfully returned in Semester 2. This event, held at the extravagant Grand Hyatt, emulated the success of previous years, with all tickets being sold out. We dedicate this to continuing and ardent desire from the student body to engage in professional networking events. Held in conjunction with MASA and RMIT ASA, this evening provided students with the ability to gain industry insights from an extensive range of sponsors.
Distinguished from other associations networking events, Corporate Cocktails provides a relaxed and socially conducive environment for students and industry professionals to engage within, fostering real conversations that highlight the true individuality of our talented student base. Concurrent to the student’s in-depth insights into potential career pathways, employers were able to showcase their array of student programs to a captive, talented audience.
Corporate Cocktails mirrors ASA’s fundamental mission statement, as it provides a platform of mutuality between students and employers, as both stakeholders can establish meaningful connections that develop the employability and professional acumen of students, whilst giving an indication of the pool of talent emerging into the commercial world. Feedback resoundingly confirms the event's effectiveness as a means of student-professional development, as students found the event to be a rewarding experience. As a result, we endeavour to keep Corporate Cocktails at the forefront of our annual assortment of events for 2020.
