Commerce graduate Alex Noon considered a wide range of possible careers before he realised that the world of accountancy was for him. He enrolled to study accounting and finance at Griffith Business School and has not looked back.
At university he seized the opportunities brought by membership of the Griffith Honours College and when Griffith's work-integrated-learning program led him to city firm McGrathNicol's summer vacation program he got the chance for some hands-on industry experience. This led to a part-time job while he completed his degree, followed by a full-time position on graduation.
'My studies gave me that base understanding of the industry and what was going to be required of me,' Alex says.
