Melbourne Business School is one of Australia's top ranked business schools. It's MBA program is currently ranked 52nd in the world (Financial Times Rankings - 2008) and 17th in the world by the Economist Intelligence Unit.I work collaboratively with current students and MBS Alumni to help them reach their full potential within their careers. I adopt a structured approach to identifying and approaching potential employers and work with them to identify whether an MBA graduate would add value to their business. I am a vocal advocate of using social networking tools (primarily Linkedin) to maximise my productivity, I also coach students on how to use Linkedin effectively.I manage the relationship the school has with historical MBA recruiters and work with them to facilitate brand building activities on campus.

- Coached students and developed case interview training opportunities, which resulted in a significant increase in interview success rates from the previous year.
