GABRIELE: I decided to do a professional placement as
it was always in my plan throughout university. I chose to work at the Data Experience because it
allowed me to mix psychology which is my major and business which I have always had a very big interest in. I learnt lots of things like stakeholder management, facilitation
methods. I learnt how to train people, which is a big step for me. ISACC: Before I began my placement I expected to learn a lot about
how an organisation works and the dynamics of your day to day life. I was also looking forward to the experience it would add on my resume.
Placements is actually why I came to Swinburne. So at the moment I am working on building a data source
for our clients executive reporting management tool. Within my projects specifically I have been
working a lot with finance data. The biggest challenges has been understanding that data. Coming from a physics background I’ve then had
to learn a lot of finance technical jargon. MICHELE: The Data Experience is a data
consultancy based at Swinburne. We work with businesses to help them understand
and use their data in whole new ways. We recruited students from a number of different faculties and we find their ability to learn, and adapt
and take on new ideas really exciting. Working with Swinburne Professional placements
is a unique opportunity and to start building those relationships early
so you get the best candidates for your roles. GABRIELE: I have gained a lot of confidence in
my ability and my consulting approaches here. And my supervisors are great with helping with those sort
of things. Personal growth is something that we focus on. I feel as though it would definitely give me a
competitive advantage when applying for other jobs.
