What is your new role at Avocado?

Graduate Consultant

What made you want to go into the IT industry?

I was fortunate to have some time off due to Covid-19 and was able to rethink my career goals and what I’d like out of my job. This led me back to studying a Cyber Security certificate, which I have always enjoyed learning about in my spare time and being grateful for the chance to explore an area in the IT industry that I’m passionate about.

What are you most excited about for your new role?

I’m excited about the opportunity to develop my skills and knowledge and advance my career with guidance and support. As well as to be a part of a great team.

What type of work are you hoping to do after the graduate program?

I have a lot of interest in Splunk and would like to continue my knowledge on how it can be applied in differing situations to meet the needs of businesses. I would also like to expand my knowledge in other area’s such as Dynatrace and CyberArk.
