Did you find the Summer Vacation Programme to be a valuable experience and has it contributed in getting you to where you are now?

The Summer vacation program was valuable, and it exposed me to new ideas, highly skilled professionals and opportunities to connect with industries. For me, it was my first Australian work experience and it has helped me develop skills to manage work life balance and work in a new country, culture and diverse nationality.

So far, it has opened me to a new career path in Asset Reliability and Maintenance which I am gladly pursing and hoping to develop more in years to come.

What was the most interesting aspect of the programme?

Visiting Rio Tinto Iron Ore's Cape Lambert Port was a great learning experience and enabled me to visualise the processes and equipment I was working on.  I would probably say the most interesting facet of the programme are the people you work with, they are very experienced and approachable and always willing to pass on nuggets of wisdom!

What was most satisfying about your job or what did you like most about working here?

The poeple are welcoming, friendly, helpful and patient.  The organisation is very team oriented and I felt like I was part of everything.  I was working in a field I had never been exposed to before, and I always enjoy new experiences.

Has the Summer Vacation Programme contributed in getting you to where you are now?

I found the Summer Vacation Programme very valuable, as it exposed me to a side of management that most graduates won't normally encounter for years.  This makes the lessons and skills that the programme exposed me to even more valuable, as they will prove useful throughout my career.

Did you find the Summer Vacation Programme to be a valuable experience?

Yes, it was a great experience.  For me it was the first time that I had worked in an office environment with other engineers and it also provided me with some great exposure to the mining industry.  Considering that I had previously always worked within the maritime industry, I found this to be great exposure.
