Meet our new graduates: Jamie Ramos
Hi, my name is Jamie Ramos. I am a Graduate Monitoring Consultant at Avocado with an Associate of Applied Science and Associate of Cyber Security.
The strengths I bring to this role is my ability to engage and work collaboratively with my team, because I’m motivated to learn and seek feedback from team members. I’m also reliable to work independently as I take initiative to ensure work is delivered with certainty.
I believe this role is a great learning experience. It gives me an opportunity to network with people and engage with a team of people who are equally as interested in this kind of role. I’m really excited to be working with the Avocado Monitoring team, as they are a wonderful group of people, and individually go out of their way to help the graduates.
Undertaking the graduate program, I am still looking for my niche but I’m confident Avocado will be able to help me find something that suits me. I chose the monitoring career path because at university I found the monitoring aspects of the degree more enjoyable than the security and architecture aspects of cyber security. For now, I’m keeping an open mind my long-term career plans.
My advice to any graduates looking to apply for a job at Avocado is, do your research and don’t feel limited to the job description. Avocado has plenty of opportunities, and if the monitoring practice won’t be your lifelong career, Avocado will help you find your place here. Also, if you have a passion for this sector it pays to do self-learning to stand out. I didn’t have much work experience prior to this role. Most of my informal education came from actively participating in university clubs or learning computers the old-fashioned way – sitting myself down with a computer and tinkering!
Graduate intake for our 2023 program opens in October 2022
