Mimi – Restructuring – Melbourne
The best thing about my job is the variety of work – even if it is the same task you’ve done 100 times, you always have to adapt it to the current client/project and therefore always critically think. You are constantly learning and being challenged and for that I do not doubt that I’m in the right job.
Tips for students:
- Take the time to find something you are interested in or at the very least, would be okay doing every day! There is no rush.
- Do not be afraid to give it your all - take any and all opportunities that come your way and seek a few out yourself.
- But remember, careers can be an important part of a person’s life, but they are not your whole life. Do not put too much pressure on yourself and judge yourself on your own notion of ambition and success.
Elizabeth – Forensic – Melbourne
When I say that no job is the same – it really is true. Forensic Accounting is not your typical accounting (such as tax or audit). So, my days can consist of attending interviews of suspects in an investigation, reviewing confidential emails, conducting financial analysis and reviewing heaps and heaps of documents. The best part of my job is being in small teams such that I often get to work directly with Directors and Partners which helps me learn so much so quickly.
Tips for students:
- Make the most of all the “free time” you have. Travel, volunteer, explore and do all the things that might be more difficult in full time work.
- Establish your base community and build relationships with people now. Full-time work can be a big change so it’s really important to have family and friends that can understand and support you. Hopefully you will make heaps of friends at work, but it’s good to have people outside of work too!
- Learn from every experience, there is rarely ever a wrong decision. You either enjoy the outcome of your decision or you do not. We are always learning so every mistake is an opportunity to learn from it and do better next time.
Xavier – Real Estate – Sydney
The most enjoyable part of my job is the development work we do with our joint venture partners. It’s tangible – it’s great to work on a project from concept to completion and physically see the progress along the way.
Tips for students:
- Study abroad if you ever get the opportunity
- Participate in internship programs towards the end of your degree. You gain industry experience and it puts you in a better position when applying for jobs after university
- There is no harm in changing your course halfway though. If you have given it a shot and its not for you, choose something that really interests you.
Caitlyn – Restructuring - Perth
The best part of my job is being able to speak to people who are confused and scared about losing their investments and being able to provide them some comfort and familiarity over the process and what’s going to happen next.
Tips for students:
- Travel as much as you can during uni because you’ll never again have three months off at the end of every year! Best to make the most of it.
- Join a few clubs at uni – would be a great way to diversify your group of friends
- Make the effort to make connections with your tutors as once you’re in the workforce they could be useful connections.
