“After I graduated, I started working as a migration and education associate for an education and migration agent. I then moved to the Gold Coast for a full-time job in client services for a financial company. Growing my skills in communication, management, and customer behaviour have significantly benefitted my career. Studying at ACU strengthened my knowledge and ability to succeed in most job interviews and handle roles well. Doing group work and participating in different activities also helped me gain confidence and the soft skills I needed for work situations.”
