Bachelor of Health Sciences, Majoring Nutrition
As a Nutrition student there was no opportunity to undertake a work experience placement in the field in order to gain relevant experience and contacts within the industry. This was only given to Dietetic students, hence finding work as a Nutritionist has been hard/non-existent due to lack of experience. I personally have been unable to even find a non-paid work experience job in the industry, as again these roles are being given to Dietetic students. Very disappointing and have brought this up with various staff members with no result.
The career opportunities were not transparent and so this led students to believing there was more opportunity out there. As Work experience was difficult (not enough money in the industry therefore not enough room on boats etc to participate) this created difficulty in being eligible for the minimal number of jobs that were available to graduates
