Bachelor of Engineering (Chemical)
I am in my first year of chemical engineering, a degree I initially chose to keep my options open. My real passion lies with deep sea diving and I want to one day work offshore on oil rigs, in a role where I liaise as the missing link between divers working below and engineers coordinating projects on the surface.
To improve the chances of realising my career goal, I attended the Careers Service Resume Club and was also critiqued in a mock interview. The feedback I received helped me to improve my delivery and gave me the confidence to approach potential employers.
I have now secured part time work as a diving contractor, which has given me the opportunity to develop my employability skills and gain practical experience to complement my engineering qualifications. I am certain this experience will set me aside from other engineers and mean I have something unique to offer an employer.
