Shahar Schildkraut is inspired by the people she surrounds herself with. At RMIT, that’s enabled her to invest even more of her passion into her studies in building and construction.
Working with people who share your passions definitely makes the learning process even better.
I am determined. I am motivated. I am open-minded.
I’d heard great things about RMIT’s Building and Construction from past students because of its study environment and hands-on focus. So when it came time for me to find somewhere to study my longtime passion for building and construction, I knew where to go.
My program is great because it’s designed to teach the skills students need to get registration with the Building Practitioners Board. It pushes us to excel but also encourages us to explore different aspects of building and construction and develop our skills and knowledge.
My favourite subject has probably been Layout Services. As part of that course, we go to go out to real work sites and learn directly from practice by observing everything that was going on. I was an interesting and fun way to get the knowledge and get out of the classroom.
But outside the studying, the highlight has definitely been the people you get to meet as part of your program. Working with people who share your passions definitely makes the learning process even better.
My plan for the next three years is to start working and gaining all of the experience possible within the construction industry hopefully through working for a commercial builder, as my ultimate goal is to start up my own commercial building company.
I love what I do because, in the end, I am sure that all the hard work will pay off and I will be exactly where I want, doing what I love.
