When going for graduate roles, recruiters are interested in how well you can balance extra-curricular activities and employment while you study. The best decision I made while studying, was applying for a vacation program to gain exposure to the industry. This allowed me to practice some of the many skills I developed while at university.

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.
