The application process for the Graduate Program involves a number of different stages from online exams to face to face interviews. I chose CommBank because they have always been a market leader in the banking/technology space and that excites me.
My role has varied greatly. I addition to the formal graduate program, I have also been able to explore different areas of development throughout the whole process. I have had exposure to the analytics side of the Bank (6 months) and the sales side (6 months). Coming together as a graduate cohort 3 times in the year was an amazing experience and friendships have been made that’ll last a lifetime.
The training/support throughout the program has been immeasurable, whether it’s been professional, personal or technical development; simple things like writing effectively to analyzing multinational company’s financials have been very helpful.
I have been fortunate in being able to work on projects that really make a difference. Projects where we present to very senior leadership who endorsed our findings and are allowing us to implement changes in the Bank.
The program hasn’t always been easy, it’s been a constant challenge. But throughout this process I’ve never been left alone. I’ve always had the support I’ve needed to move to the next step. There is a definite open door policy where I can ask any question and have it answered. Overall It’s been a very rewarding period of time and I couldn’t advocate for the experience anymore.
