Another piece of advice would be to not wait until after graduation to get your name out there for possible employment. Some jobs follow processes that can take 12 weeks, six months or more. Don’t wait till you’ve finished your course, check out part-time opportunities and even apply for the next year’s graduate roles.
I have bounced back and forward as to what I wanted to do when I left university. I am someone who likes to have five to 10-year plans for my life. However, I found my career at IBAC completely by chance. This has taught me that you really are on a certain path in life and even if you’re in a job or degree that you don’t like, it’s leading you somewhere you need to be, or teaching you something that you need to learn – embrace it!
I am extremely supportive of Swinburne and thankful for their guidance and opportunities they have opened for me.
