Scoring an internship and career with Richmond Football Club
When Grace took on an internship at Richmond Football Club while completing her Bachelor of Business she did more than gain crucial work experience, she kick-started her career.
While still studying I got into a vacation program at KPMG, in its risk consulting division. I had little idea of what I was getting into but had an incredible experience. I took a graduate offer and now work there in a Data Analytics role. There’s no way I could’ve predicted where I am now just a few short years ago.
Bachelor of Business (Entrepreneurship and Innovation)
Make sure you check out the available scholarships. They became a really good goal for me during Year 12 and are achievable if you put in the hard work. I also recommend coming to Open Day – you can ask questions (even silly ones!) and get answers from current students.
