Production Engineer | 2016 Engineering Graduate | Behring

My industry experience when I entered the Graduate Program was limited to the engineering consulting and mining industries. To top that off I had minimal knowledge of biochemical processes. Thankfully my attitude, passion for problem-solving and strong desire to become an engineer that has a positive social impact made me a desirable candidate. Now I have little time to imagine a more challenging, interesting and dynamic work environment!
