Meet graduate of the Bachelor of Business with a Major in Management, Matt. He is currently working at the Telstra Careers Centre as a Contingent Sourcing Specialist. Thanks to his studies, Matt is now thriving in a career that he never previously thought he could work in.
In a former stagnant career, Matt often found himself looking through jobs that all required relevant tertiary education. He, therefore, made the decision to study with Swinburne Online so that he could ‘remove the shackles’ that were holding him back from career progression.
The flexibility and support of online study was a great option for Matt as students with full-time jobs and commitments have the ability to study from anywhere at any time, advancing themselves without putting life on hold.
Study has impacted my life only in a positive manner. It has tested my resilience, given me a lot more structure and allowed me to advance my career.
Studying online also allowed Matt to develop the technical skills that he was unlikely to pick up in the workplace. With the tools and experience now to succeed, there is nothing holding him back.
The weights are off and the future looks brighter now.
For now though, Matt is very happy in his role at Telstra. He loves the experiences that he gets every day working with a range of people from different backgrounds and career paths.
