Entering the industry
My previous work experience
My work placement experience
I have been lucky enough to experience two industry placements within Energy Queensland, both within the regulated and unregulated sectors. During these placements, I was able to attend multiple site visits, including substation tours and a chartered flight to Doomadgee, located in the gulf of Queensland.
What I'm doing now
I am looking forward to graduating at the end of this year before gaining employment with a company with a well-established graduate program to build my technical expertise. I eventually want to move into the project management space and work on large-scale decarbonisation projects to drive net zero in Australia.
