During my final year of study I completed a 10-month internship at Coles, working with the Supply Chain team. In this position I found the skills taught to me at Victoria University vital in achieving success. Receiving a top 5 position in the ‘GradConnection Top100 Awards’, which recognises the most employable graduates across Australia was, as they say, ‘the icing on the cake’.
