Nathan Brierley

Bachelor of Commerce and Department of State Development Internship

Nathan Brierley is kicking career goals, having recently been promoted to Senior Economist at the world-renowned Deloitte Access Economics. It’s a position he credits to hard work, dedication and the extracurricular opportunities he had access to, thanks to choosing to study his Bachelor of Commerce at Griffith University.

“The massive range of programs and opportunities I had at Griffith was what helped prepare me for the future of work,” Nathan explains.

“The course work is only one element of the benefits of a Griffith degree but it’s the extras that set them apart.

Jessie Broomhead

Bachelor of Commerce

"I think the good thing about doing a commerce degree is that it’s very versatile and some of the programs I did at Griffith, such as the two internships I completed, really helped me a lot in terms of getting employment after university. I did an internship at a non profit organisation called career trackers and I also did an internship at an insurance company Insurance Australia Group. Having a company you've worked at on your resume or some sort of link to real experience gives you that credibility when you’re applying for jobs."

Carola Moriau

SPPP welcomes intern

In July the SPPP team welcomed Carola Moriau, an economics intern from Griffith University.

Carola arrived in Brisbane as an international student from Peru in 2013 and says her time in Queensland has been a life-changing experience. Trilingual in French, Spanish and English she says the experience has allowed her to recognise the exciting opportunities and work-life balance Queensland has to offer.

Carola is currently studying a Bachelor of Commerce and also works for The Star Entertainment Group. Her research focus is on analysing Australia's foreign investment policies and Queensland's competitiveness as an investment destination.

"Im really enjoying my time and think it is getting me ready to work in my field of macroeconomics", she says.
