Currently working for:
Callista Software Services- Analyst Programmer
IEEE Computer Society Victorian Section- Secretary
How long have you been working for this organisation?
Since February 2010
Since February 2011
Position title and short job description:
As a part of the Callista’s ADF development team I have been fully utilizing Oracle ADF 11g to provide the implementation of the extremely rich Java EE applications.
The IEEE Chapter Secretary is an integral part of the Chapter’s Executive Committee. The Secretary manages the records and correspondence of the Chapter. In addition to these, some of the specific duties include:
Working highlight so far:
I started my job at Callista working on the company's Wiki website, where we basically had to import various types of files into the website and then edit/format newly created pages. I then completed some regression testing work for release 13.0 with the QA team. I've also worked on the "Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement" project and "Correspondence" project. Currently I am working on Java Server Faces on Oracle 11g.
What are the things you enjoy most about your job?
Flexible work hours and opportunities to improve the skill sets are the two most important things I enjoy in my work environment.
An area in which you have needed assistance:
There is a big difference between university assignments and industrial projects. The most important skill is being able to adopt to the company's culture. But if the theoretical knowledge of study is strong then it will just take couple of weeks to get used to the corporate life. Deakin provides a good foundation for students to transform their knowledge into the work culture.
What do you intend to do in the future?
Learn as much as I can and establish myself as a good programmer and software designer. I have a dream to conduct research on High Performance Computing (after I acquire enough programming skills) at the later part of my life.
#1 tip for current students studying your course:
Plan on doing assignments a few days prior to due date, then discuss the hard parts of the assignment with your lecturer/tutor (you will be amazed by the outcome). Also try to get actively involved in extra-curricular activities as much as you can which will boost your confidence level to a greater extent.
