The great thing about the graduate program is there isn’t really a ‘typical’ day at all

1. What is your background and what did you study?

I studied Commerce at UNSW, and worked as a duty manager at a cinema throughout this time.

2. What does a typical day as a grad look like?

The great thing about the graduate program is there isn’t really a ‘typical’ day at all. I’ve worked in stores, in the warehouse, in the office, and travelled across the state doing project work.

3. Could someone with a different background do your job?

Absolutely. I have colleagues with backgrounds in law, science, engineering, education, and even military.

4. What’s the coolest thing about your job?

The autonomy, the responsibility, and above all: the people.

5. What are the limitations of your job?

There are some long and challenging days, but I honestly don’t view that as a limitation. It’s a far cry from a ‘9-5’ desk job, which is my idea of limiting.  

6. What 3 pieces of advice would you give your student self?

  • Travel, travel, travel
  • Defer your degree and keep travelling
  • Don’t live off instant noodles to save money, just shop at Aldi! (not sponsored, I promise)

7. What is your favourite ALDI product?

Our entire meat range is great, but the rump steaks are truly phenomenal.
