How I landed my ideal job before I graduated

Zeenia recently completed a Master of Information Technology at the University of Technology Sydney. She landed a job in product support engineering at an IT firm in Sydney – before she’d even graduated.

About Zeenia

From a young age, Zeenia wanted to visit Sydney. She says NSW is home to Australia’s strongest economy and some of its most prestigious universities with many opportunities in IT. She chose UTS due to its rise in the QS World Rankings.

Zeenia enjoys the natural beauty of NSW, especially the Blue Mountains and Sydney Harbour. Moving forward, Zeenia is working towards a managerial career in IT product development and advancing her expertise in cyber security work.

Zeenia’s tips

“Research and budget for different living options in NSW, especially in different suburbs. Network on LinkedIn and with people studying in NSW to learn about understand Australian culture. And make the most of the university support services offered here and opportunities to gain work experience”.
