My first year as a graduate structural engineer with AECOM has been filled with great opportunities and challenges. Within my first week, I already had responsibility for my own projects and was fully engaged with my team and our clients.

One of the advantages of beginning my career with AECOM is the broad range of projects I’ve been exposed to right from the start. For example, I am part of the building structures team in Brisbane, Australia, but I’ve also had the chance to work with other structural teams in our resources, power and industrial, and transport businesses.

Currently, I am progressing through the three-year Growing Professional Skills program, which has helped me develop my technical skills as well as provided me with the opportunity to network with other graduates and young professionals from the Brisbane office and across Australia. The networks I have built within AECOM are invaluable and highlight the benefits of working for a company with multi-disciplinary teams across the globe.
