I started my tertiary studies straight after high school. During my second year of studies, I decided to take a semester off because I started to feel unmotivated with the major I chose (marketing). Taking a semester off during my studies was possibly the best decision I made because it led me to choose my career path in human resource management.
As I reflect upon my university experience so far I would say overall it has been a positive experience with both its constant ups and downs. My university experience has provided me with opportunities to grow as an individual with the support of academics, family and friends.
I have met inspiring people at this university who happen to be my educators. Without their help and support, I don’t believe I would have been able to start and complete the opportunities that have been given to me during my studies at ACU.
University can seem daunting after high school or if you are a mature-aged student. It is in your hands to choose the right university that caters to your need for a successful future. You can be sure that with the support of staff at ACU you are bound to grow with an eye-opening journey. Being in my final semester of studies, minus the stress and tears I’m sure you’ll love it just as I do!!!!
The duration of the three-month internship program at the NSW Business Chamber was an amazing experience. The professional experience program allowed me to have an early insight of the industry I wish to take part in after my studies. I have been able to gain fundamental entry level HR skills whilst completing my studies. This program also gave me the opportunity to complete projects of mine own with another intern for the Chamber. Not only have I gained a professional experience but also an opportunity to network in the professional world.
