‘As publicity manager at Queensland Performing Arts Centre, I work on a variety of shows from dance and theatre, to orchestral and festivals. At QUT, I really enjoyed working on real-world projects and relating what I had learned in the classroom to the real business world. I was also able to tailor my business degree, choosing elective units that helped to prepare me for my chosen career path.’
Opening up opportunities
'My studies at QUT opened up opportunities for me that I may not otherwise have had. This was a great opportunity for me because I ended up gaining employment at a firm I had always wanted to work at since I commenced my university education.'
‘QUT encourages you to think big. It is never enough to just solve a problem; you are taught to go above and beyond. I completed an internship with Google at their global headquarters in California where I designed and developed test infrastructure for a large software system. I now work there full time and as you would expect, it’s amazing. Not bad for a first job.'
