Did your career plans change as you studied?
Going into university I had a general idea of where I would ideally like to end up, but through my time studying I have been exposed to an array of business fields which has not only helped shape my career plans but also provide exposure to a wide range of different industries, which I can utilise in my chosen path.

Where do you see yourself in 5 – 10 years?
I hope to have established my knowledge base within the field and have gained a better understanding of the more complex workings of the profession.

How valuable was your internship for you as a student? How did this help you fine-tune where you wanted to head?
My internship at BDO in the Business Advisory Services team gave an incredibly valuable insight into the workings of the professional world. It gave me the chance to take my academic learnings from university and apply them in a practical sense, where they had a real world impact. Through this experience I have been able to formulate a clear perspective on where my future lies.
