Meet the PY Video Competition Winner!
Hi my name is Izzy Kim, I am 25 years old and I came to Australia from South Korea.
I graduated from the University of Newcastle in 2009 where I had completed a
Bachelor of IT.
What I enjoyed most about the program
"I found that the internship placement at the end of the PY program is the most joyful period of entire program. The internship program allowed me to put my theoretical skills gained through university and the Navitas Professional year program into practice. During the 3 month internship, I was given exposure to a number of IT projects in many countries worldwide and those projects allowed to show my abilities as IT professional. It was a precious learning experience to understand what the Australian corporate environment was like and experience the host company's organisational culture."
How the Navitas Professional Year Program changed my life…….
Before doing the Navitas PY program Izzy was having difficulty finding work in Australia, but after completing the PY program she tells us:
“I am now a full time Business Analyst and I am continuing to work hard. I now have the opportunity to support the Asia Pacific region with business process improvement.”
Izzy’s advice for anyone thinking about the Navitas Professional Year Program
"If you are planning a professional career after graduation, you may realise that finding a job with little to no experience is very tough and challenging especially for international students. The Navitas PY program will guide you in the right direction to prepare for your employment in Australia and you can grow together with other students heading towards the same goal within the program."
