CommBank recruits promising Commerce student before graduation
Sitting for final exams right before finishing a degree can be a very stressful time. But for Alexander MacInnes it was made a little bit easier by an unexpected job offer from Commonwealth Bank.
A student heavily involved in extracurricular activities, Alex had submitted his resume to the bank hoping to secure an internship when he finished his Commerce degree in Finance.
But although optimistic about his chances, he didn’t hear anything for about a year and a half and put it out of his mind. Then he got a phone call.
“It had been ages and all of a sudden I got a phone call saying a position was available, and I should apply. I met with the executive manager and he explained the role and got to know me and from then we enjoyed a really good rapport. He told me then he wanted to put me right through the interview process of the first position, and skip the actual online application.”
Unfortunately, Alex missed out on the position to someone internal. But it seems a great impression was left because a few months later, the morning of his first exam, he heard back from the bank with a job offer.
