Industry Connect is helping people to launch their careers all over the world, and this time it’s in Australia where our skills have come through!
Himadri just landed a job as a Business Intelligence Developer thanks to our help, and before she sent off to start her new career, we asked her about her time with us.
Congratulations Himadri! Tell us, what was your background before you joined Industry Connect?
My prior experience is in software testing, so I have worked as a software tester for almost six years back in India.
I relocated to Australia in 2018 and since then I was trying to land a job, you know, applying left and right, but then of course due to the lack of local experience I did not get anywhere.
So that’s when I joined Industry Connect.
So what did you think of Industry Connect?
Honestly, it’s absolutely brilliant because there are a lot of courses out there in the market but something that really prepares you for real-time industry experience? I’m not sure that is offered anywhere else.
Before joining, I did not know that what all is there to be offered, but this is absolutely right – I’m very happy.
What would you suggest to others starting with Industry Connect?
I paid a lot of attention to the tasks that we had during the internship. And I attended all the meetings – I absolutely made sure that I did so because we get to learn a lot from you guys. Because you are working and you have a lot of knowledge to impart.
So I made sure I met the deadlines for the tasks, consistently, because the sooner you complete a task, the sooner you get to move onto the other one. That’s a very good thing because it makes you more and more familiar with the real-time industry experience and how to work in that.
So that’s all I did; I just did the tasks, attended all the meetings, and met the deadlines. That’s it!
Would you recommend Industry Connect to others?
Oh, one hundred percent.
Learn from me, because I too was struggling to get a job. Obviously coming to a new country, it’s always difficult find a job, it takes a little time to learn about the industry in a foreign country.
So if you join Industry Connect, you get to learn all that there is about it. There’s no doubt that you will be prepared in the end for landing a new job, so of course I’d recommend Industry Connect.
Go ahead, join it, don’t delay!
Thank you Himadri, and congrats again on your new job as a business intelligence developer!
