Issue Three: November 2023


We’re getting closer to the end of the year and we have two further sessions where you can connect with your fellow graduates and CSIRO.

  • Fusion online session on 23 November 2023, 1:00 - 2:00pm AEDT. This session will cover ‘Your Professional Image’. 
  • Our final online catch-up on Tuesday 5 December  1:00 – 2:00pm AEDT will be facilitated by the NextGen Talent team and you will get to meet some of our Enterprise Services Leaders. To help us make this session relevant for you, we’re keen to know what questions you’ve got for our Leaders. Please send your questions to Kat at

Connecting with your fellow graduates

An opt-in contact list has been created with more than 18 graduates so far. This contact list gives you the chance to catch up and get to know each other before you start in February. If you’re keen to join, please email Kat at She’ll add you to the contact list and then share it with you. 

Dress code!

We’ve been asked a few questions about the dress code at CSIRO and here’s everything you need to know.

Will you need to buy a new wardrobe of corporate attire? No, we’re a pretty casual bunch and most days you’ll find us in smart casual; often rocking a CSIRO t-shirt. However, it is a good idea to have a pair of closed in shoes available just in case you need to go into a laboratory. 

Are you following us on our socials?

Did you read Double Helix magazine at school? We’ve been featuring a few experiments on Instagram and here’s how to make a lava lamp - groovy. As the official scientific partner of the 2023 Bridgestone World Solar Challenge we were inspired to create a Spotify playlist, which could also be your summer road trip soundtrack.
