(Lending Services Coordinator, Monash University Library)

Rod Rizzi (Graduate Diploma of Information and Knowledge Management) is employed in the lending services area of the Caulfield campus library. His role involves leading the Readings and Reserve team which create the dedicated web pages on the library website that contain reading lists and associated links to essential and recommended reading.

Monash University is such a well-regarded Group of Eight university in Australia. Coupled with its strong reputation as a first class education provider overseas, I knew it would give me the edge over graduates from other institutes.

The fact the course content deals with current trends and technology such as social networking, tagging and web 2.0, I believe also gives me an edge when compared to other graduates.

Studying this course has not only helped me professionally but also in my family life. The options it gave me with work opportunities enabled me to find a job that suited me and my young family. Had it not been for the course I wouldn't have had these choices, and my children would see a lot less of their father.
