WiseTech Global isn’t an environment where everyone aims to outperform each other or prove their abilities, but a place where everyone strives to expand their skills and help others improve. It’s the perfect work environment for any IT enthusiast, who wants to work with and learn from other technology professionals. It was "unexpected".
Prior to my Internship my impression was very different. I saw the company as a small, yet growing, group of IT professionals who all shared a common interest in programming. Once I started interning at WTG, I was exposed to the company from a completely different angle
During my Internship, WTG treated me like any other employee. I was given interesting work which actually provided value to the company.
The quality and knowledge of the developers at WTG is incredible.
One of the most enjoyable experiences during my placement was my involvement with the ACS Foundation's BiG Day In, representing WTG as a presenter. Remembering back to when I was in high school, I was inspired to pursue IT by attending events like this and being able to possibly inspire others was highly rewarding. I was given a high level of responsibility, much higher than I expected considering I was “only an intern”.
My Internship is now complete, and I'm very happy to say that I stayed on at WTG as a Software Developer and I love my job!
However, what really convinced me to stay was the Culture (Our People), and I’m not just referring to the foosball table. As Richard White, CEO would say "Our People Define Us".
If you want to begin a placement at WTG, I advise you to adopt the company Culture. Demonstrate your willingness and desire to learn with passion.
My time at WiseTech is proving an unforgettable experience, and I couldn’t have found a better start to my IT career.
