“Even though you are good at your skills, you definitely need to have the support of someone to trust you and give you a chance to prove yourself in a foreign land”
By Yogesh Haresh Bojja (Illume Fellow), Master of Data Science, RMIT.
I was stuck back in my hometown, India, due to a pandemic, which restricted me from meeting new people, expanding my network and somehow affected my confidence, as I know how networking plays an important role in getting a job in Australia. I returned to Australia with a lot of questions in my mind. I met Laxmi Pun (Founder of Illume Foundation) through one of my friends and started my fellowship at Illume Foundation.
This fellowship gave me a chance to meet new people from different industries and get to know their thought processes. Meet-ups and parties organised by Illume Foundation opened the gates to meeting new people in person, which eventually made my network strong. While pursuing fellowship, I got an opportunity to work as a Business Analyst with a startup, CharityBay through Laxmi. This role gave me an idea of how the IT industry works in Australia and gave me the confidence to deliver. I was excited to land by Graduate Role as Data Science Engineer through Illume Foundation.
