While studying a double degree in finance and law at Griffith, Peta Wilton brandished her well-used passport on a regular basis. Thirty countries in three years complemented her tertiary education with a global outlook that has served her well. Many of her overseas ventures were associated with opportunities gained through the Griffith Honours College, internship programs and international exchange. Peta credits her overseas experience with giving her an edge in the employment market. She also had an advantage when the time came to look ahead to life after university. Her connection with Griffith's Careers and Employment Service led to an offer to work with KPMG's audit division on the Gold Coast.
