  • Most days I went out with a member of a various department and shadowed them on their job and learnt what they were doing. I also had a lot of office work where I helped (mainly the grads) with the projects they were currently working on. When I had a lull in the work I worked on an excel document I had, doing comparables.


  • 2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
  • - communication - am much better on excel - confidence in an office environment - how to do comparables - how to do an inspection - how to use land app - some basic skills with contracts such as how to read them correctly and how to fill in some basic contractual forms - how to tour houses with agents

    Business Insight

  • 3. What was it like understanding all about the business and potential roles available?
  • It was interesting to see which sectors grabbed me and which ones I wasn't so interested in through the developmental zoom calls that we had. I was surprised by how many different areas there were and it definitely gave me a lot to think about regarding future job opportunities.
