Former Intern Testimonial: Thuy, 2019 Intern, now 2021 Financial Markets & Treasury Graduate
"I studied Commerce and Law at Macquarie University and, in my spare time, I enjoy going out to eat with my family and playing volleyball and frisbee with my friends.
I was a Financial Markets & Treasury Summer Intern, but I'm also interested in astronomy!
I applied for the Financial Markets & Treasury program in particular because I wanted to challenge myself and try something new and exciting. Westpac Group is well known for celebrating diversity and empowering women – this is one of the primary reasons that attracted me to apply to work here."
