Recent marketing graduate, Lauren, was pleasantly surprised by the overwhelming interest she received from potential employers upon finishing her degree.
“I received a fair few calls backs from potential employers and many of them were excited to hear that I had done my degree online because it showed ’dedication, motivation and commitment'.”
Lauren, who now works as a full-time marketing assistant for a notable baby products company, believes studying online gave her the tools she needed for full-time work in the marketing industry.
“I think the number one thing the course gave to me was recognising my strengths, weaknesses, likes and dislikes within the marketing industry, and opened my eyes to how the business environment works.
“Studying online taught me to be self-motivated, organised and efficient, and these are skills I’ve taken into the workplace.”
Lauren was working as a nanny when she decided to return to study. She enrolled in the online Bachelor of Business (Marketing) to change her career and says her eLearning Advisors were amongst the highlights of studying online.
"I am was amazed at the quality of the eLearning Advisors. They always make a huge effort to ensure everyone gets involved and understands their subject. Throughout high school, certificates and diplomas I have never felt more supported than I did at Swinburne Online."
After graduating in September 2014, Lauren’s experience studying online helped her get a job in the marketing industry.
“Almost everyone I have spoken to has praised me for completing my degree online and for finding the motivation to stick to it and achieve great results too.
“Graduating with a degree was something I thought I would never do, but I was very supported through the whole process and I couldn’t be more proud of my achievement.”
