You have made a great choice.
The rate of change that technology progresses can leave many of us adrift when deciding our future. Often it won't be your technical skills that lets you move forward. You need to develop your soft skills, and have guidance in the best way forward. The Australian Computer Society is rich with this experience. You can gain access to ICT Professionals from all paths of ICT, and all stages of their career. Learning from the best our society has to offer is one of the richest benefits of being an ACS member.
Mixing with like minded individuals at similar stages in their career, is one of the best things you can do. Shared learning experiences mixed with fond memories of a lifetime stick. Building yourself a strong network for support moving forwards is essential.
The ACS WA Young IT Leadership Camp will provide you this and more. Attend and take your first steps to fulfilling your potential.
