"AEMO’s graduate program unlocked the doors to a myriad of opportunities within the company, as I was able to steer my rotations in the directions that best supported my career development. Over the duration of the program, I worked on several large projects and had interaction with a large number of experts both inside and outside the company - this gave me a valuable overview into operating the entire energy market! On completion of AEMO’s graduate program, I was offered a full-time Engineer position and am now constantly stimulated to progress my career."
