PRESIDENTS’ ADDRESS For most of you, deciding what to study in university would not have been an easy choice. We both remember tossing up between the different things we were interested in, but ultimately we chose Business for one reason or another. Whatever path has led you here, we would love to congratulate you for hitting an incredible milestone, and extend you the warmest of welcomes to the UNSW Business School for 2022. We would also like to challenge you to approach university as not just an academic institution, but an avenue for you to truly grow and develop yourself personally. Your journey at UNSW is what you make of it. There are so many opportunities available at UNSW and you will meet amazing people along the way. As long as you make the most out of it, we can almost guarantee that some of your most treasured memories will be from university. As first-years, you’re probably feeling a range of emotions. If we were to take a guess, it would be some excitement, a fresh burst of motivation and for many of you, a little wave of anxiety. Don’t worry, as we can assure you, we’ve been there. Some common experiences we’ve had include running around campus trying to find our tutorial room, grabbing as many freebies as possible at uni events with our first-year status, and the daily dilemma of choosing between GYG or Yallah Eats for lunch. You will know your way around campus sooner than you know it, and things will settle into a routine. Each small moment amidst both the peculiar and familiar have become memories for us, and we’re so grateful for the UNSW community as we can laugh and reminisce about so many things to this day. For both of us, we started university almost immediately with this wave of uncertainty that brought us the joys of remote learning, virtual exams and Zoom-powered university events. Regardless, we were able to make the most out of our experience at UNSW by taking on these challenges head first, and embracing every opportunity that came our way - and we’re confident that you can do it too. So where do you find such fantastic opportunities? The UNSW community offers so much, and that’s why we love it here. In particular, the UNSW Business Society (or BSOC as many of us call it), is the constituent society of the UNSW Business School. We strive to continuously inspire, engage and empower you to recognise your full potential. By connecting you with like-minded individuals and industry representatives, your social, professional and academic facets will be elevated. We will be with you for your entire university journey, hopefully you will find something from us that sparks your interest. We encourage you to take all the paths that delight you so that you don’t regret anything when you look back on your years at university. We are so excited for you, and it’s time for you to step out of your comfort zones, create new memories and strive for the things that daunt you. Love from your Co-Presidents of 2022, William and Sarah
William Tu, Sarah Kim Co-Presidents UNSW Business Society 2022
TAKEOFF Takeoff, for the majority, is the most daunting part of a trip, leaving your comfort zones behind and venturing somewhere completely foreign. But with careful planning and preknowledge about your destination, it doesn’t have to be. This way, takeoff becomes the beginning of greater adventures - a prologue to the best chapters of your university experience.

GETTING STARTED Course Enrolments Before the beginning of each trimester, you’ll need to enrol in your classes for the upcoming term.

STUDY LOCATIONS Main Library As the uni’s most recognised study location, the Main Library has over 2000 study spaces to choose from. There are private rooms and booths you can book online which are great for individual or group study; make sure to reserve them in advance since they can book out real quick! Rooms with whiteboards, laptop loans, print and copy stations are also available for student use at the library. Remember your ID card since access is only available through tapping it at the entrance! A little downside to the library is that it's at Upper Campus, around a 10 minute walk away from the Business School - but be sure to check it out!
Law Library Despite it’s name, the Law Library is not just limited to law students. Being very close to the Business School, it's a convenient alternative to the Main Library. Like the Main Library, there are private rooms you can book online in advance for individual or group study. There’s also a charging station on Level 2 that locks your phone while charging and helps you stay focused! Also a little tip, there ARE bathrooms in the Law Library on the ground floor hidden behind the moving shelves - something I wished I knew during my long study sessions when I made the mistake of constantly walking in and out of the library for a bathroom.
Business School The Business School, also known as ASB, is another great study location with booths, rooms and theatres to use for individual and group study, provided classes aren’t running. A little tip for checking classes is that timetable stuck on the front of each room. Unlike the libraries, it's a bit hard to secure a study spot during exam season with a first-come first-serve situation and no bookings being taken at ASB. Regardless, ASB makes up for this with kitchen facilities with microwaves and hot water being available on Level 1 and 2. Nancy Wang

HEALTH AND WELLNESS The transition from high school to university life can be challenging, and you might feel unprepared or overwhelmed.

UNSW Psychology and Wellness The UNSW Psychology and Wellness Services provides access to a broad range of counselling services from professional counsellors and psychologists. Students enrolled at UNSW can access these services Monday through to Friday which provide mental health support such as confidential counselling, motivational support, anxiety and mood management and assistance with the general transition into university. Consultations can be booked beforehand, or provided through “on-the-day” face-to-face or phone consultations. Visit https://www.student.unsw.edu.au/counselling/about for more info. University Health Services Location: Ground floor east of the Quadrangle building University Health Services is staffed by experienced GPs and specialists who can provide you with comprehensive health services such as face-to-face appointments and telehealth appointments to students, to help you with any concerns about your health and wellbeing. Equitable Learning Services Disability services are staffed by a team of Disability Advisors dedicated to providing free and confidential assistance regarding health conditions, learning disabilities or other personal circumstances to ensure your health condition does not adversely affect your studies. Support provided may include: • Educational adjustments to classwork and exams • Assistive technology and notetaking services • Special consideration for assessments LGBTQIA+ Ally @ UNSW The Ally training program aims to make UNSW an inclusive and friendly place for everybody by reducing barriers of fear and ignorance that lead to prejudice and discrimination. The training sessions provide in-depth discussions of gender, sex, and sexuality, and explore the issues facing the LGBTQIA+ community. Queer collective @ ARC The Queer Collective is a body within the SRC which represents the LGBTQIA+ students on campus. They meet twice a week and host a range of activities throughout the year at Queerspace; Room 9.21 in the Chemical Sciences building. Akash Biradar

Our significant work
Diversity & Inclusion
We let our work speak for itself, and are proud to work with some of the biggest organisations in the world on their most important matters.
We strongly believe that diversity in all its forms should be embraced and celebrated. This benefits our people, our clients, our firm and the industry at large. Our culture is defined by excellence, collaboration, commitment and respect.
Our clients include more than half of the top fifty ASX‑listed companies, some of the largest privately owned companies in Australia and a number of global Fortune five hundred companies.

Telecom, Wesfarmers and Westpac. We also work with governments, Federal and State, as well as on major transactions that make the news.
Corrs’ Lawyer Development Program The Lawyer Development Program is designed for lawyers in the formative stage of their career. It aims to build the capabilities and relationships that will drive career progression and underpin future successes, as rapidly as possible. Unique features of the program include: •
Mentor partner – Each lawyer is allocated a mentor partner (in most cases their supervising partner in their first rotation) who remains in this role throughout the program and potentially beyond. This will build a personal and enduring relationship that transcends everyday transactional work. Lawyers will also be supported in each rotation by a supervising partner and SA/SC who will source meaningful and challenging work.
12 x 6 x 6 rotation structure – We have extended the first practice group rotation from 6‑months to 12 months to ensure lawyers have time to learn on the job and build strong capabilities and relationships in their first year. In the second year, when lawyers have an increased level of experience and confidence, they will complete two 6‑month rotations in order to gain exposure and build relationships across different groups.
Formal learning – The program incorporates comprehensive formal learning opportunities including our national Graduate Academy, local Graduate Orientation, practical legal training with the College of Law, practice group induction sessions, and the national Legal Excellence program.
Community & Pro Bono We think it’s important to contribute to the community and to facilitate access to justice. We perform around 20,000 hours of pro bono and volunteer work each year, helping those who need it most. We feel that it is our responsibility to ensure legal services are available not only to those who can afford it, but to those who cannot, to those who are disenfranchised and to those who have genuine legal issues of public interest that need to be pursued, even if those issues are unpopular or politically sensitive.
Wellbeing Program Corrs recognises the importance of health and wellbeing and is committed to providing a safe and healthy workplace through a range of programs and policies. Our wellbeing program provides a range of initiatives to assist people in maintaining good overall health. Some of our activities include mixed netball, pilates and yoga, touch football, cricket day, Friday night drinks, family days, trivia nights, End of Financial Year party and Christmas Party.

There are many types of assignments whose nature will vary depending on the degree and major. You may be asked to complete an essay or report, asked to design a program, carry out a lab experiment, analyse stock performance in an i-Lab and many other potential tasks.

Ce Min Pangastur Attempt past and practice papers under the given Information Technology Director exam conditions to familiarise yourself with the UNSW Business Society 2022 environment of the exam.
STUDY TIPS 1. Understand Your Timetable Make sure you’re up to date on lectures and tutorials by scheduling time for them each week. Achieve this by understanding your timetable, and set reminders by exporting the UNSW Timetable to an online calendar such as Google Calendar.
2. Keep Track of Assessment and Deadlines Keep track of your assessments and key deadlines. Doing so will prevent last minute cramming, which is unhealthy for your mental and physical wellbeing.
Each Course Outline found in the Handbook, details how many hours of commitment per week is necessary to stay on top of your course - make sure you have a look and schedule everything else around your academic work!
Information regarding assessment deadlines are found in the Course Handbook, Moodle or directly through your lecturer or tutor.
3. Form Study Groups Create a support network amongst your peers in the same degree, course and social circle. Doing so will enhance greater accountability for your academics - and as a bonus potentially create new friendships! Through my personal experience, launching study calls (or in-person) consistently each week reduced my procrastination. Applications such as Discord, Zoom or Messenger Calls are my top recommendations. University courses cover several in-depth concepts every lecture, thus these group activities such as sharing knowledge and asking questions will improve your understanding of course content.
Using platforms such as Google Docs (outlining the key dates), using Google Calendar or using applications such as ‘Countdown’ are most recommended to use as reminders for these important dates throughout the year. 4. Create a To-Do List Creating a To-Do List everyday is an easy way to make sure you’re on top of your academic work. You will be able to better juggle your social, academic and professional life. Cross out things you have completed throughout the day, and MAKE SURE you stay on schedule as much as possible. The more you deviate from you To-Do List, the less effective the list will become.

In your Commerce degree, you will learn core business principles through your fundamental courses that help build up a strong foundation for your specialised studies, whether that be accounting, business analytics, economics, finance, marketing and more.

Social Director UNSW Business Society 2022
Commerce / Economics This four-year program provides a foudation for students looking to break their way into a variety of professional careers in the business industry. What makes this program exciting is the ability to choose a major for both the commerce and economics component of the degree – or a double major for commerce! The core subjects across both the commerce and economics components will give you a taste of the different specialties you can end up with. My advice would be to bring together your knowledge across both degrees as it will help you better understand content as subjects become more challenging.
Competitions Director UNSW Business Society 2021
Commerce / Arts This four-year course marries the practicality of the commerce discipline and the freeform nature of the arts and social sciences. From media studies and political studies, to learning languages and improving creative writing skills, the breadth and liberty of this degree can make it seem daunting to first years. No other commerce double degree will give you the flexibility to challenge the syllabus content and to improve your critical thinking skills. To excel in this degree, don’t limit yourself to prescribed university texts and engage in wide reading to foster original ideas and to gain a holistic perspective on the course content.

TRIMESTERS Introduction to Trimesters UNSW’s academic calendar of trimesters was recently introduced in 2019 to provide students with greater flexibility in managing their degree progression. The study load has shifted from a traditional 4 subjects per 13-week semester as found in most other universities to 3 subjects per 10-week term. Trimesters promise students increased flexibility with their courses and better alignment for exchanges opportunities. Trimesters also offer better utilisation of the university campus for a longer portion of the year with opportunities to manage extracurriculars as well as internship roles.

GETTING THE MOST OUT OF TRIMESTERS Study Load In order to maintain status as a full-time student for the whole year with Centrelink, Youth Allowance and Opal Concession services, you must study at least 18 UoC over T1, T2 and T3 AND ensure that you are completing at least ONE course per term. You also have the option to hold status as a full-time student in specific terms by studying at least two courses. Managing Studies Generally courses are 10 weeks in length meaning there is decent workload allocated for each term. Make sure to consistently watch lectures and attend tutorials in order to keep up with the workload! It would also be a good idea to assess the difficulty levels of the courses and distribute subjects throughout the year accordingly. Creating a course progression plan is recommended in order to plan for the future and manage your studies. Please note that some courses are only offered in specific terms while others require prerequisites. Exchange Since the UNSW3+ system runs alongside academic calendars in the northern hemishpere, exchange tends to be an easier process, allowing students to transfer courses and be on track with their domestic program upon return. Despite the current impact of COVID-19, positive trends around the world have an increased possibility of international studies. Societies, Sports and Work Trimesters offer students the flexibility of incorporating more extra-curricular activities into their timetables, so you should definitely engage in the wider UNSW community. Whether you decide to join subcomittee for societies, play sports with Arc or seek out internship and part-time jobs, make the most of university life by taking advantage of this flexible academic calendar.

MAXIMISING YOUR UNIVERSITY EXPERIENCE Obtaining a degree is the end goal of your university life, but don’t miss out on the experiences that university can offer. It’s easy to get caught up in studying and neglect your social life, but I implore you - don’t forget to have fun. UNSW has so much to offer, from the endless opportunities to the meaningful friendships that you can form, and it’s up to you to take the initiative to get out there and make the most of it. You only get as much out as you put in, so put in as much as you can! Societies At UNSW, you will have the opportunity to get involved in over 300 clubs and societies, ranging from faculty-related societies such as the Business Society, to hobbies and sports. Joining a club and attending their events is a great way to take a break from your studies to participate in some social events with people that share similar interests. Some societies will also offer the opportunity to join a subcommittee if you are interested in the day-to-day operations of the society. Being part of this team to deliver actual value to the student community is not only rewarding, but sets you up for real work. Volunteering If you want to give back to the community, volunteering provides the opportunity to do so while building valuable skills. At UNSW there are over 20 volunteering programs that run through the year which allow you to make new friends, and add to your experience and personal growth. If you’re interested, hop onto the Arc website and find what program interests you the most. Sport UNSW also offers many social and competitive sport clubs and societies, ranging from cricket to diving. If any pique your interest, give it a go, even if you’ve never tried the sport before. Participation will help you meet new friends, with the additional benefit of being active! University can be a big lifestyle change – juggling studies while making new friends, and it’s alright to feel lost or have some problems settling in. Sometimes we underestimate the different pressures and stressors during university, so it’s important to be kind to yourself and practice self-care. Don’t feel ashamed to ask for help, emotional, physical or social support – UNSW has plenty of support services to guide you through any difficulties. Warren Lu

MAINTAINING A WORK-LIFE BALANCE I would divide the typical university student life into studies, work, socialising and self. There is no universal formula that works for everyone, but achieving balance means developing a sense of organisation and self-understanding. Organisation means keeping track of events in your life and allocating time for each event. Here are some tools which have helped me keep track of my life. Calendars Calendars are extremely useful for visualising your week and planning ahead. I personally use the built-in Apple Calendar synced to my university timetable. Colour coordination helps guide the eye to separate your life into those brackets of studies, work, socialising and self. For example, my calendar categories are work, university, due dates, important events, friends, extracurriculars, subcommittee commitments, and general. To-do list To-do lists make it easier to break down individual tasks which would clog a calendar. I enjoy using a Notion table for this. I make separate lists for each course, subcommittee work, competitions and work. I find it useful to indicate due dates, sort list by earliest due and mark the progress of each task ‘as done’, ‘in progress’ or ‘to do’. Notion also offers a calendar view for tasks. Self-understanding refers to knowing what you want - your goals, priorities and health. Although time management helps, work-life balance at its core is not about better time management but making choices and enjoying those choices.
But when given the choice to study, work or socialise, how do you choose? Here are some life lessons I’ve learned throughout 2021. Prioritise Yourself Our priorities could include study, socialising, work, sleep and many more. Make sure to understand what you prioritise and are willing to give up. For example, if it is important for me to get good grades, I could sacrifice a night out to study. Although it is not defined as ‘fun’, it will ultimately make me happy. On the other hand, if socialising is my priority, I could give up my study to go bond with friends. Remember that everyone has different priorities. As such, it is important to keep a level head and not be influenced by other people’s lives. Don’t be afraid to say no to taking on more work in an assignment, a social event or another work shift. Always prioritise your own priorities and your mental health as you are the only one accountable for your happiness. And at the end of the day, if you are still struggling to choose what you value, follow your gut! It may sound simple, but trust your gut to always tell you what you want. Don’t regret the decisions you make, and always try to make the best of the present and future. Sally Sun
Education Director UNSW Business Society 2022
ADVICE FOR INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS One of my biggest pieces of advice for all those seeking to live abroad and study in Australia is to get involved with both the Australian Culture and university life. Moving away from your family and friends can be both exciting but also nerve wracking at the same time, so it is extremely important that you surround yourself with individuals that make you feel welcome and perhaps even remind you of home. There is a variety of things that an international student can do to become more accustomed to their new environment including: Joining a Society UNSW is renowned for our wide range of societies that cover a vast variety of cultures, sports, activities and religious faiths. This is one of the best ways to meet like minded students, learn more about Australian culture, and gain networking and professional skills in an environment open to all. Whether it’s the Dog Appreciation Society, the Business Society or even the Yoga club, there is a space for anyone and everyone who is confident enough to join. Seek Support Sometimes extra support is needed especially when looking to settle in, to a completely foreign environment with different customs and cultures. Reaching out to groups like the International Student Experience Unit (ISEU), the Culture Mentor Program, English Success Group or the International Peer Support Group can help to bridge the gap between home and Australia, a home away from home. Get Involved with BSOC Whether it's through joining a subcommittee or as a general member, BSOC offers a variety of events over the year to get everyone of all ages involved. Some of the main events offered yearly include Peer Mentoring, Careers Fair, Pub Crawl, Games Night, sporting tournaments and much more. We welcome all who wish to get the most out of their university experience. Polytra Liufalani

BEST FOOD AND DRINK ON CAMPUS Food
Yallah Eats (Lower Campus) Yallah Eats has a reputation for providing UNSW students with big hearty meals that are enough to fuel your brain and body for a long hard day of study at university. There are a range of different options of meat, and even vegetarian/vegan options. Yallah Eat is genuinely one of the most ‘bang for your buck’ food options available on campus. If you’re looking for something to satisfy your sweet tooth, their Baklava is sure to satisfy your cravings. Yallah Eats is one of our proud partners - to get some free chips with your meal, all you have to do is show your BSOC sticker. GYG (Lower Campus) Great quality Mexican food for an affordable price! They offer breakfast until 10:30 AM for the early-comers, so help yourself to a breakfast burrito before your 9 AM tutorial and a bottle of orange juice. They also have their standard menus which consist of burritos, nacho bowls, tacos along with a range of customisable protein and salad choices. Mamak village (Lower Campus) If you are a sucker for flavoursome meat, Mamak Village can provide you with juicy skewers, various curries and fried chicken. (No worries for the vegetarians: they have vegetarian options that have tofu substitutes!) On top of that, their range of Malaysian style beverages have the power to bring you halfway across the world to the heart of Kuala Lumpur.
Boost (Middle Campus) Whether it is a hot day and you want to cool down with something sweet and healthy, or you are looking for a post-workout drink - Boost is perfect for any situation. With a range of fruits and vegetables, they have in store many smoothie flavours that are bursting with flavour, fiber and (if wanted) protein! Hey Fresh! (Kingsford - Off-Campus) Although not on campus, Hey Fresh! is a short walk away and has the best milk tea in town. My personal favourite is the Jasmine Green Milk Tea with pearls and lychee jelly. A plus point of this shop is that it also sells egg waffles - with choices of toppings. A trip or two to Kingsford for Hey Fresh! and waffles would be strongly recommended. XSEspresso (Upper Campus) A trendy cafe that has a great range of creative & delicious coffee, milkshakes, smoothies and crepes. They also have breakfast, lunch and dinner options that hit the Instagram aesthetic. Their drinks have many different and limited edition flavours that change every month, such as a Raffaello flavoured shake and latte. So, if you are an adventurous taster of food and drinks, this is the store for you! Kevin Dao, Jason Lee

EXCHANGE & INTERNATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES One of the most incredible and valuable opportunities available at UNSW is learning abroad/student exchange. UNSW offers two types of exchanges for students. • In-person exchange: students can travel the world whilst studying academically •Virtual exchange: similar to in-person exchange but without the travel or need to leave the house. Which universities can I exchange to? UNSW partners with over 300 universities from all over the world. This includes some of the top universities in America, Canada and China such as University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), University of Toronto (#1 University in Canada), Tsinghua University (#1 University in China). Am I eligible? To be eligible, you simply need a 65 (credit) WAM minimum and to have completed at least 18 units of credit in your degree. However, some universities may require higher grades and this varies between universities. How much does it cost? The best part of UNSW exchange is that there are no additional fees for tuition and you only need to pay your standard UNSW fees. However, keep in mind for in person exchanges that you will still need to cover living expenses, including accommodation, travel and food which all vary in costs according to your destination. Application Undergraduate students can apply after completing at least 18 units of credits which is generally from Term 3 of your first year. There are two application deadlines each year: May - for student exchange in Term 1, of the next year. September/October - for student exchange in Term 3, of the next year. To apply - Follow the step by step process as directed on the UNSW exchange website https://www.student.unsw.edu.au/exchange Other international Opportunities Global Business Practicum (COMM3020): Study and work overseas in Bangkok, Jakarta or Hong Kong and gain academic credit.

AN INTRO TO CASE COMPETITIONS What is a Case Competition? A Case Competition is pretty much exactly what it sounds like. Teams ranging from 3 - 6 students are presented with a case brief problem and their goal is to ideate, design and present the most innovative solution to that problem. The initial judging is based on the quality of the case deck (presentation) submitted in order to make it to the first round of heats. Following this, presentations are given either in the form of a video or live pitch in order to select successful teams that will proceed into semi-finals and then consequently finals. While this is the general structure adopted for most competitions, the exact format for the competition may differ slightly depending on the society. The benefits of participating in Case Competitions So why are Case Competitions worth your time and effort? Case Competitions offer a multitude of benefits for ambitious university students looking to build vital real-world skills by working on real-world problems. They are a fantastic opportunity to enhance your problem-solving abilities, create a personal and innovative impact on diverse business scenarios, and develop presentation skills to put you in great stead when applying for corporate roles. Case Competitions are also a unique networking experience to build your professional network and meet industry representatives. But most importantly, they are a great way to have fun working with teammates and broaden your horizons by experiencing diverse and challenging situations! Where can I find Case Competitions to participate in? The UNSW Business Society facilitates several case competitions throughout the year which you can find and register through our social media channels, so be sure to keep an eye out! These competitions range across a diverse range of topics and affiliated partners to ensure we cater to the needs and interests of all university students, regardless of year, degree or experience! You can also find more case competitions through the UNSW Business school website which can guide you to case competitions held across the business school, as well as international competitions where you can compete against teams from across the world!
How to ace a Case Competition Practice makes perfect. As cliche as it is, the best way to better your case competition and presenting skills is to compete in a variety of competitions that test and improve your strategy development, pitching ability and ideation. Another big tip would be to keep your solution simple. Overcomplicating a design solution can encounter a number of elements that may extend outside of your team's expertise, and pose more questions from the judges. Simple solutions will allow for more of a focus on implementation into society and impact on the target market, both of which are key components of good case pitches. BSOC’s Case Competitions 2021 2021 was a stellar year for BSOC’s case competitions, despite much of the teaching period being conducted online. In 2021, the Business Society was lucky enough to partner with IBM, WooliesX and WPP through our competitions, which had record student involvement, and offered a range of prizes such as group mentoring sessions, interviews, resume workshops, consults with industry executives and an internship position. The quality of prizes howeve, saw the calibre of student presentations excel. We look forward to another record year with great partnerships, amazing prizes and even better student performances

PHILANTHROPY PLUG The BSOC Philanthropy portfolio aims to resonate with our student body by advocating prevalent contemporary issues and striving to improve the welfare of the wider society. By upholding a sense of social responsibility through our targeted charitable causes, fundraisers, and knowledge sharing, we aspire to convey the genuine intentions of BSOC towards creating tangible change, both within our university and beyond.

Thus, BSOC Philanthropy strives to be proactive by continually adapting our events to the fluctuating social climate, whilst advocating shared kindness and generosity across the student body. Our History Officially introduced in 2017, BSOC Philanthropy was implemented as a powerful stepping stone for students to be engaged, empowered and inspired through humanitarian efforts. Despite being a relatively new portfolio within the society, the past five years has demonstrated the extensive power of student collaboration and outreach in creating social change. Philanthropy has established itself as a portfolio that delivers highly-engaging opportunities for meaningful work through its persistent initiatives with local charity partners and participating students, ultimately providing maximal contribution to the business school community. Our Vision For 2022 Entering the new year, BSOC Philanthropy has envisioned a range of new and stimulating plans to ensure it retains its positive impact whilst reflecting our society’s core values. Continuing the tradition of trimester themes, we cordially invite you to participate and raise awareness for initiatives supporting environmental awareness and animal welfare (T1), access to fair education for youth (T2), and personal wellbeing encompassing both physical and mental health (T3). These social causes will be spearheaded through our pre-existing and newly-established flagship events. Furthermore, BSOC Philanthropy aims to foster an even stronger and compassionate community by connecting students with a plethora of accredited volunteering opportunities. How Can You Participate? Celebrating the inclusivity and diversity prevalent within our society’s culture, BSOC Philanthropy strongly encourages everyone from all different backgrounds to actively participate in our events and initiatives! Whether you have an affinity for a particular social cause, or would like to volunteer and meet new friends, Philanthropy promises a supportive environment where you can have fun and enjoy a worthwhile experience. We encourage you to join us, either as a subcommittee member or as an attendee at our events! Hope to see you soon, Lauran Tien, Darrel Chia Philanthropy Directors UNSW Business Society 2022

SPORTS AT UNIVERSITY Sport plays an important role in shaping our physical and mental wellbeing, so it’s clear why UNSW offers plenty of opportunities for students to participate in both social and competitive sports. Social sports are a great way to get involved whilst making new friends in a relaxed environment. Meanwhile, competitive sports allow students to channel their inner competitiveness by competing against fellow university teams. Many societies offer a diverse range of social and competitive events including basketball, soccer, oztag, netball, and e-sports. The UNSW Business Society offers annual events such as social basketball and different tournaments (oztag, basketball and netball) which allows students to stay active and have fun. Additionally, collaborative sporting events such as Interfaculty and Interbusiness tournament are great ways for students to compete in various sports while meeting people studying similar or different degrees at uni. The UNSW Business Society also offers its annual Ski Trip, which is a fun opportunity for students to enjoy the snow whilst staying active with friends. Keep an eye out for updates throughout the year as it’s an awesome opportunity that you don’t want to miss out on! Lastly, UNSW offers competitive sports run by Arc Sports which includes regular season sports such as soccer, basketball, and netball. Like high-school sports, students partake in trials to join representative teams at either the local, state, or national level. Vanessa Fong, Joshua Su Sports Directors UNSW Business Society 2022
CAREER Understand the career opportunities available to you over the course of your degree, and how to get the absolute most out of them. This section will introduce you to networking tools and tips, as well as helpful resources on how to set yourself up for the best possible start to your career.
LinkedIn and Networking
Internships and Mentoring
LINKEDIN & NETWORKING Embracing the power of LinkedIn and networking is key to staying updated on the latest market trends and advancing your career by seeking out greater career opportunities. Intentionally broadening and sustaining relationships with your network will increase your chances of professional success.
LinkedIn is a social media platform that focuses on professional networking and career development. Creating a LinkedIn profile allows you to showcase your professional experiences, achievements and skills, and recruiters will often cross-reference your profile with the information on your resume. Hence, it is key to ensure your LinkedIn profile is up to date. LinkedIn is integral for expanding your professional network. It allows you to keep in touch with old colleagues and networks as well as find and connect with new professionals that may be able to assist with your professional endeavours. Your LinkedIn profile will also serve as a more interactive and comprehensive resume, and it is one of the best places to find job postings online. Ensure you stay private when looking at other’s profiles if you do not want others to see that you have seen them. LinkedIn is a useful tool to know your interviewers before an interview. You will be able to find out about their interests or recent activity they have engaged in and thus have more engaging conversation as well as asking more relevant questions. Ensure your LinkedIn Profile is complete and up to date as recruiters often cross-reference the information on your profile against your resume. Observing professional etiquette on LinkedIn is key. Success on LinkedIn depends on developing and maintaining a good reputation, so it is important to appear professional at all times, even when commenting on others’ posts. Avoid posting personal information, avoid overselling yourself and do not embroider the facts when you discuss your achievements.

Networking is a broad term that refers to expanding your personal and professional circles through both informal and formal settings. Essentially, the aim of networking is to build relationships and rapport with others that may be useful in a future opportunity. Q: Why is it important? Networking is important as it allows you to access opportunities that may not be advertised or available to the general public. Networks also have the potential to grant you first hand insights into different industries, what employers look for and provide exclusive advice on how you can improve professionally. The most obvious place to grow your network is in your workplace as these connections can provide you mentoring practical training and referrals, thus allowing you to advance in your current position or transition to a new one. Fellow peers are also a key avenue in which networks are built as they most likely have similar passions or have understandings in alternative fields which is useful when developing a comprehensive understanding of your career opportunities. Whether it be LinkedIn or networking, you must always add value first. To build genuine connections with others, it is important you build value and rapport for them to have interest in who you are and what you do. To be successful on LinkedIn and in networking overall, you need to first consider WIIFT (What’s In It For Them) rather than (What’s In It For You). Furthermore, be proactive. It is important to cultivate your network year-round through messages, networking events and coffee chats is the most effective way to ensure your connections are willing to extend a hand when you need it.

INTERVIEW TIPS Many of you will be exposed to real interviews in professional settings for the first time this year. Whether you are interviewing for subcommittee positions or a part-time job on the side to earn extra income, gaining interview experience is a crucial part of the first-year journey. Before the Interview 1. Do Your Research Ensure you understand the responsibilities of the role, your expectations, and your day-to-day tasks. This will allow you to answer any potential questions your interviewer may ask about the details of the role, and shows that you have not blindly walked in with no understanding of the position you are interviewing for. If interviewing for subcommittee positions, I recommend you talk to as many people as possible who are already involved in the society. This will help you gain a deeper understanding of the society beyond what is written on paper, give you an opportunity to have all your questions answered, and demonstrate your strong interest to your potential interviewers. Furthermore, study and remember the values of your particular organisation. Take some time to think about how your values align with theirs and, thus, why you are a good cultural fit for the company. 2. Prepare Answers Although it is impossible to predict the exact questions your interviewers will ask you, it is definitely possible and highly recommended that you prepare answers to basic interview questions. This includes questions such as, “Tell me about a time you had conflict with a team member”, “Tell me about a time you had to think on your feet to solve a problem”, and “Why would you be a good fit for this position?” Think about your various past experiences which may be relevant and prepare anecdotes. These can be gathered from volunteering experiences, playing in a school sports team, a part-time job throughout high school, a group assignment or anything else you can think of. Don’t worry, as first-year students, your interviewers will typically not expect you to have professional or corporate experience to talk about in your interviews!
During the Interview 1. Use the STAR method This stands for Situation, Task, Action and Result. This method is a great way to structure your interview answers and ensure that you are not going off topic or speaking for too long. Ensure that your response directly answers the interviewer’s question. If the interviewer has asked a two-part question, signposting your answer is a great way to show that you are listening intently and responding to each part of their question. 2. Presentation Counts Don’t be afraid to take a moment before answering, or to ask your interviewer to repeat the interview question. Try to limit your use of filler words, and remember to speak slowly and clearly! Sit up straight, make good eye contact with your interviewers, and smile. Remember to show your personality through your responses - your interviewers aren’t looking to hire robots; they want to hire actual people. After the Interview You can relax, it’s over! You can definitely consider emailing your interviewers and asking for feedback, so that you can improve for next time.

CAREERS FAIR Adjusting to university can be a stressful experience, and making choices that could potentially impact your future, such as your degree major, an industry to work in and your career path can make it even more daunting. How do you decide what major you’ll do? What role do you see yourself in? What do you want to do and where do you want to be after you graduate? As a first year student, the best thing to do to answer your questions is to speak to as many graduates, employees, and employers as possible – gaining a wide range of experience across all fields. The best place to gain an in-depth understanding of what your future has to offer is at the UNSW Business Society’s Careers Fair! What is the Careers Fair? Students are invited to attend the annual UNSW Business Society Careers Fair, where they will have the opportunity to speak with representatives from sponsor companies such as Chartered Accountants ANZ, EY, Deloitte, Google, and many other companies from a wide variety of industries. All students, including first years, are encouraged to attend the Careers Fair – it is an incredible opportunity to learn more about different service lines of companies and clarify where you would like to work in the future. You can discover organisations and companies that you may not know much about, opening new career ideas and options. Hearing directly from company representatives and recruiters allows you to network and learn more about the roles and opportunities that may arise, which can help in developing and positioning you for an internship. Come along with questions at the ready and a thirst for professional advice and knowledge, and you will be able to get the most out of this event. As an additional bonus, goodies will be up for grabs, including free coffee, sandwiches, merchandise and much more! How do I develop my professional skillset? The best way to improve your skills and employability is to get involved at university and in your community! Your first year is the year that you get to explore and experience what university really is – to see what you like and what you don’t. There are countless events and opportunities across all degrees and career pathways that you can get involved with to learn about what you’re interested in and where your passions can take you. Events such as firm presentations and networking sessions will expose you to new situations, people, and opportunities. Interviewing workshops and case competitions will develop the skills that employers are looking for, and joining one of the UNSW Business Society’s many subcommittees will connect you with like-minded peers who will help you grow!

SOCIETIES Societies open you up to a range of professional, social and personal development opportunities. However, unpacking what societies are, and then understanding how to get involved can be daunting. This section answers all questions you might have about societies, subcommittee, and how you can get involved to truly maximise your first year experience.
What are Societies?
The Application Process
How To Get Involved
AN INTRODUCTION TO SOCIETIES With around 300 clubs on the UNSW campus, the student life is enhanced through socialising, getting active and having fun! With plenty of choices, you are bound to find one that interests you, an opportunity to both develop professionally and on a personal level. A society is always oriented around a specific interest, hobby, or field, and allows you to connect with other like-minded individuals, with similar interests. By joining a society as a member, you get access to any resources the society produces, or events they coordinate, and thus are best placed to either learn or network within your chosen niche. However, most clubs facilitate further bonding, through the recruitment of subcommittees. Subcommittees are your first step into fully immersing yourself into university life, allowing you to work internally in a society, and coordinate activities from social events, professional workshops, to even the day-to-day running of the society. For a first year student looking to get involved in university, beyond the classroom, societies are your best friend in learning a range of new skills, creating new bonds and making memories that will last a lifetime. When navigating the world that is UNSW societies, there are a few terms which you may not understand. So, we’ve attached a glossary of terms to help you unpack a bit of that jargon! Constituent Society: A constituent society is a club or society which directly works with, and represents a given faculty. For example, the UNSW Business Society is the constituent society of the Business School - meaning it works closely with the department, to provide resources, events and workshops tailored to all BSchool Students. Arc-Affiliated: Arc is the independent body on campus which is responsible for maximising student experience. For a society to be arc affiliated, they must uphold the safety, wellbeing and welfare standards stipulated by Arc, and genuinely represent student interests. Subcommittee: Some societies recruit subcommittee members annually to aid in carrying out the internal running of a society. Subcommittee members are internal members, and get to enjoy unique internal events, from professional workshops, to bonding days. Subcommittee members also get to record this involvement on their resumes, and are often accredited for their volunteer contributions.
Directors: Directors are also internal members of societies, however, bear greater responsibilities than subcommittee members. Directors are responsible for carrying out all internal processes to ensure the smooth running of a society, while also upskilling and training subcommittee members that they recruit. Directorship is a big responsibility, and the recruitment process is often difficult, however, being part of a board of directors is an exceptionally rewarding experience that sets you up for future corporate positions. Portfolio: A portfolio in a society is a group of subcommittee members and directors that together ensure that a given facet of a society's responsibilities are fulfilled. For example, a Human Resources portfolio in a society would be responsible for ensuring that all committee members are looked after and supported, while also mitigating conflict to ensure the smooth running of the society overall. The Business Society has 13 portfolios. Division: A division looks at a given area of a society, and the collection of portfolios which must work together to ensure its fulfilment. For example, BSOC is divided into four divisions (internals, externals, operations and activities), each of which carries out a given function of the society. Each division itself encompasseses multiple portfolios, which hold similar objectives and work closely together. In the context of BSOC, the operations division itself has four portfolios; Publications, Marketing, IT and Digital, which each work together to achieve collective goals and ensure the internal operations of the society occur effectively.

THE APPLICATION PROCESS UNSW provides an endless array of opportunities for students to continuously learn and grow, and being directly involved in societies can most definitely make your university experience more fun and rewarding! Being a subcommittee member allows you to collaborate with a diverse group of like-minded and committed individuals in order to plan events, create content and/or liaise with other parties under the guidance of your directors. This thus not only allows for the cultivation of meaningful friendships, but moreover, stimulates the development of personal and professional skills that often cannot be achieved within regular classroom settings. So what is the typical society committee application process like? 1. Written Application The first stage in any subcommittee application process usually sees applicants submit a written application. The written application stage will often consist of a few questions, and as subcommittee recruitment is often very competitive, it is extremely important to ensure you really stand out from other individuals. These questions will usually be centred around your passions, motivation and unique qualities that make you an ideal fit for the role. [Tip: Ensure that your responses are succinct, logical and provide an in-depth answer to the question!]

2. Interview If you are successful in your written application, the next step of the application stage will be an interview, and these are often conducted in a group-style environment. Though it may seem daunting, stay calm and be yourself in the interview - answer all questions honestly and don’t be afraid to show your personality! Ensure to clearly communicate your skills and commitment towards the role, and prepare yourself by knowing what the society - and specifically your chosen portfolio - does, as well as their core values! [Note:Check out page 55, where BSOC’s Careers Director, Linda, shares her interview tips] 3. Application Outcome The outcome of the applications are often released 1-2 weeks from the interviews. If you have been successful, then congratulations! However, if you did not make it in this round, don’t be discouraged - there are plenty of other opportunities to get involved in the society (as a volunteer, camp leader, peer mentor etc.) and you can always apply again next year! While the application process may seem daunting from the outset, the experiences, skills and friendships you gain make every stage worthwhile. Good luck! Fiona Fu

OLLIE’S ANECDOTE “At uni, you get out what you put in.” After having experienced all I did in 2021 as a member of BSOC’s Human Resources portfolio I can personally attest to the accuracy of this statement. The growth I experienced both personally and professionally in 2021 through BSOC was nothing short of monumental. While putting yourself out there is a daunting experience, taking that first step and applying for a subcommittee is what opened up a wealth of opportunities and experiences that I’ll treasure for a lifetime. As a member of BSOC’s HR, I was responsible for maintaining internal bonding and the wellbeing of BSOC’s members as well as the upskilling of the subcommittee. These experiences helped me grow tremendously as a leader, planner and as a human being. Our events such as our subcommittee bootcamps, internal games night and internals sports day each engaged over 100 people and helped them form memories, bonds and skills that will last a lifetime. Being able to have this level of impact on so many lives is something that rarely comes by in life so if the opportunity arises, take it by the horns. While I might sound like a broken record, you do only get out what you put in at university, so I highly encourage you to be proactive and apply for a subcommittee role or just actively involve yourself with BSOC. You will experience and form memories and bonds that will stay with you throughout university and potentially for life. I can confidently say this on behalf of everyone who has been a part of BSOC - not for one second has anyone ever regretted their decision to apply and join. Whether it be as a subcommittee member or just through their regular and continued involvement, the opportunities BSOC provides are unmatched, helping and supporting your growth - both personally and professionally.
