Entering the industry
My previous work experience
Although I have not been in a role specific to the power industry, I have gained exposure in asset management in consulting and control systems in mining. The best experience in these fields has been having the ability to see large-scale assets in operation and the different teams that interact with each other to ensure that the site is running properly.
My work placement experience
What I'm doing now
My goal in my early career is to gain as much exposure to a diverse range of technical experiences in the electrical and electronic field, (with examples being in the power, communications and control systems field) to develop a range of applicable skills. In this, I would like to specialise in an area that highly interests me and progress towards a leadership role as my management second major has increased my interest in human capability and developing efficient teams.
