A day in the life of an Indigenous Intern
After completing his summer internship at EY, Phillip was offered a part-time role as part of the Technology Strategy & Transformation team whilst finishing his STEM degree. Phillip is currently finishing his Bachelor of Engineering (Hons) in Computer and Software Systems.
'Originally from Darwin, I moved to Brisbane to attend boarding school. Currently, I am studying for a Bachelor of Engineering (Hons) in Computer and Software Systems. I started at EY through the Indigenous Internship Program and was lucky enough to obtain a position as a Consultant.
My favourite part of my experience so far is being able to work closely with EY clients to help build resilience into their increasingly large and complex IT systems, applications and infrastructures. My EY Technology teams and the Indigenous Sector Services have been extremely supportive and accommodating. They not only understand my work, social and university commitments, but they respect them. The life of a Consultant is both challenging and rewarding. My advice to those who are considering applying would be to remain open, humble and don’t be so hard on yourself.'
