“When I graduated University, I already had one more year work experience than everyone else.”
Linda is the latest Industry Connect intern to land a job, this time as a software developer.
There is no easy path to a career in software development; you have to work hard to get the results. The drive to work hard differs from person to person.
Linda had a good reason to work hard and get a job.
What helped you become who you are today?
The most important thing that has inspired me is the pressure to get a job because I’ve got a daughter in China and I need to bring her here. This is the most important factor for me to get this job.
I got a lot of help from people at MVP and Aimy Plus. A lot of people gave me advice to help improve my technical skills.
The most important thing I think is to not give up. After one or two months I almost gave up, but then I thought of my daughter, and yeah, I just needed to stick to it and find a job.
Would you recommend Industry Connect?
Yeah of course! Actually, I already did it before to my classmate. I feel I’m lucky, because I joined MVP Studio before I went to University, so I’ve got a longer internship than my other classmates.
When I graduated from University, I already had one more year of work experience than everyone else. I think that really helped me to find a job.
How we help people enter the IT industry
There’s no one better than Industry Connect to help you enter the IT industry and launch your career as a software developer.
We’ve been working in the IT industry for over two decades years, and know this business inside-out. We recognise that most IT employers don’t want to bother with the time and money it takes to “up-skill” a new employee, and so would rather hire someone at that level to begin with.

Here you’ll learn the in’s and out’s of the industry, gaining an understanding of how business works. With us you will work alongside other developers, both experienced and new Graduates like yourself, acquiring communication skills, both professionally and personally.
