Giovanni Rapana

Griffith graduate

At one point, rugby league or concreting were the likely career options before Giovanni Rapana. But despite his talent on the footy field and the stability of a family business, he knew he could accomplish more. In 2017 he completed his civil engineering degree, all while working full time with a young family at home. 'I finished high school and was labouring for a number of years, but I realised really quickly that I didn't want to do that for the rest of my life.' As part of his degree, Giovanni completed a work placement in India where his construction management skills came to the fore. His construction and engineering background has led him to his role as a Senior Project Manager at the City of Gold Coast, where he works on several coastal infrastructure projects.
