Follow your passions… Actually no, don’t!

By Nicole Papworth Have you ever been asked the question: “What do you want to be when you grow up?” What age were you when you were first asked this? Maybe 5 or 6, right?

Accessing the Political Realm: A Chat With Recent Deputy Deputy Lord Mayors, Kate Dewick and Alice Rummery

By Mia Casey For many, a career in politics often seems to sit outside the world of job options available to young people. The process of entering the political sector generally feels external to the usual steps of applying for graduate roles, doing interviews, completing internships, writing a great CV, etcetera.
