Class of 2018 Graduand Kanthy Aneesh is already succeeding in her chosen career-path, having turned her internship into a permanent role.
Originally from India, Kanthy has a wealth of experience as a computer engineer in both India and the UK. In 2013 Kanthy and her family relocated to New Zealand where her passion for numbers had a chance to grow.
“I had wanted to do something different for a while. I had looked at a number of different courses but I wanted to do a hands-on course that would give me experience and lead onto an internship, and with having kids, a place of study in the centre of town meant I could still take them to school.”
“I went and knocked on every door. I had originally emailed out my resume but after having no responses I decided to go door-knocking and I was offered an internship with
Greer and Wong Accounting
Her internship meant that she needed to take her course at a slower pace to balance it all with having kids, and her lecturers were more than willing to help make that happen.
“Originally I was worried I wouldn’t be able to do it all, but my lecturers were very supportive. Everyone was friendly and welcoming and I completed my Graduate Diploma in November 2018.”
Now working permanently for the company she was interning for, Kanthy is grateful that she was able to turn her passion into a career so efficiently while being able to still look after her kids and have an active family life.
