'Uni set me on a career path, but work experience got me a job'

In a recent article published by The Sydney Morning Herald, the journey of a university graduate finding their way into the workforce highlighted the value of internships in standing graduates out from the crowd.

The article, titled "Uni Set Me on a Career Path, But Work Experience Got Me a Job," underscores the pivotal role of work experience in translating academic knowledge into real-world success.

While higher education lays the foundation, it is the hands-on, real-world exposure that often becomes the differentiator in a competitive job market. At The Fashion Institute, we recognise the significance of internships, placements, and practical projects in moulding our students into industry-ready professionals.

“Take every opportunity”

The article sheds light on the importance of building industry networks during university years. Networking can open doors to valuable opportunities, mentorship, and insights into the fashion landscape. At TFI, we actively encourage our students to participate in industry events, connect with professionals, and engage in internships to foster meaningful connections that can shape their future careers.

TFI is committed to offering a curriculum that integrates theoretical knowledge with practical skills. Our courses are designed to provide students with a holistic understanding of fashion, beauty and lifestyle ensuring they graduate not just with a degree but with the tools necessary to excel in a dynamic and competitive field.
