My job involves seeing the first episodes of new shows, testing them and getting feedback from audiences. I also help the marketing team with strategies. I had been accepted into two Sydney universities but I knew UOW would provide me with more personal attention.

I never thought I would have Google Sales Engineer in my title. The Bachelor of Commerce prepares you for this. You are taught to be agile, to think quickly, to work in teams and to be an innovative thinker. If anything, I believe it’s important to take these qualities of authenticity into your working career.
