SUPER: Andrew Godfrey – Master of Finance, Energy Trader, ENEDIE Australia
VOICEOVER: I like challenges. I like putting things together. Finding the right career path has been a big part of that.
VOICEOVER: For my undergrad, I did electrical engineering. I had the opportunity to go on a year-long exchange to the University of Texas. I began working as an electrical engineer, but it didn't quite fit what I was looking for.
VOICEOVER: I was determined to go to the next level. Completing the Masters married the two fields together which allowed me to get into the energy markets, into a higher paced environment where split second decisions can make a big difference. It's that thinking on your feet that makes all the difference.
VOICEOVER: The small classes at RMIT allowed good interaction between students and teachers. It allowed me to socialise and network with like minded people who were doing the same thing; that were using the course as a stepping stone to allow them to enter into roles that previously might not have been possible. You need to be friendly.
VOICEOVER: You need to be willing to approach someone and you need to be approachable yourself. That's how you really make good partnerships going forward. You really get out what you put in at RMIT I feel confident now that I can go as far and as high as I like in whatever field I choose.
