SUCCESS STORIES

  • Jen Seyment in front of campus

    “The University gave me the confidence and knowledge to move forward in my career, and opportunities to build my professional network. During my studies I undertook a cooperative education year with TFE Hotels as a receptionist, which gave me a foot in the door at entry level. At the end of my co-op year, TFE offered me a place in their Future Leaders Program, and when that finished, an Assistant Manager role at Travelodge Docklands. Within 12 months I became the hotel manager of Adina Apartment Hotel Melbourne, Flinders Street.”
