- Project Manager, BCentral
- "I now love the job I am in and I got it two years faster than I thought I would."
I’ve always worked in construction and wanted to cross over from pure construction company to a property development company. Moving from Perth to Melbourne to pursue a role in Project Management, I knew I needed a recognised qualification and some broad business skills to make this transition effectively. The practical focus offered by the Monash MBA seemed the right fit.
At the start of my Monash MBA I was let go from the role I was in. It was a difficult time, but the Career Advancement Program helped turn a potentially negative situation into one of great opportunity. The team really helped me establish what the right job was for me and, with three offers on the table, helped me to think strategically to make the right choice for my long term future.
I am now a Project Manager with BCentral, a modern family-owned development company with over 20 years industry experience. I love the role I am currently in and I got to this point two years earlier than I thought I would.
Eventually I want to run my own development company. Through the Monash MBA I am gaining the business aptitude and knowledge I need to take me where I want to go.
