Tourism Management graduate, Susi Miller, combines her work and passion for our State with a dream job at Tourism Victoria. Susi came to VU as an international student and now markets Victoria to French, Italian and German speaking countries from her base in Frankfurt, Germany.
"Studying at VU was the first step for me to fall in love with Melbourne; it is so far from Germany and my father encouraged me to come and experience it all.
I really loved and appreciated the multicultural, international atmosphere at VU and I was given the opportunity to get out of my comfort zone and work together with people from across the globe on different projects.
My job now requires me to travel a lot within Germany, and also to France, Italy, Switzerland and Austria. I deliver training, meet with Product Managers, and promote new routes, hotels, tours and experiences across Victoria.
My experience at VU really prepared me in developing my skills to multitask, network and build relationships with people from different countries. I became comfortable speaking different languages and overcoming differences.
I hope to one day move back to Melbourne and gain employment within the thriving local tourism market."
