I studied Web Apps and Development at university; before my current job I worked in casual roles for System Design and Web Development. I didn’t think I would suit technical roles but I really love my job!
My Experience at the Australian Taxation Office
I applied for the ATO Graduate Program during my final year of studying a Bachelor of Information Technology. I had experience with Web and Systems Design, but since starting this year I have learnt a lot about large projects from both development and testing perspectives. I’ve had the opportunity to learn about IT in larger organisations, and how my work connects with other business areas. It’s nice to know that I have a chance to be part of the ATO’s ambitious journey to transform what they do and how they do it.
My best advice for you
Take a broad approach; look for opportunities that can expand your capabilities. Apply for jobs that challenge you to keep learning. You might be really surprised and discover talents you weren’t aware of!
