I am studying a Bachelor of Business, double majoring in Information Systems and Accounting. Currently in my penultimate year and would love to secure work experience to help me gain a deeper level of insight into working within a business, accounting and/or IT role. Apart from gaining valuable experience, this would help guide my subject preferences for my final year and position me for graduate recruitment. On top my interest in business, I have a growing interest in IT, expressed through my decision to also major in information systems, and formation of freelancing business, where my study and practice helps link my knowledge of the two fields.
