Coles is such a collaborative and dynamic organisation that has given me instrumental knowledge and skills to thrive within a professional environment, I believe this will give me a competitive edge against candidates who have only completed a tertiary degree.
For now, I would like to obtain as much knowledge in my field as I possibly can. In the future, I would like to become an expert in my field and help guide others in need.
I would recommend students to undertake a professional placement as I feel it is something that every student needs to experience in order to prepare them for the working world. I went into my placement not knowing what to expect. It was a big adjustment for me to be working in a corporate environment, having worked in a retail environment. The lessons and skills you learn from undergoing a placement is an opportunity that not everyone will get and it’s something you will hold onto for the rest of your life.
