A combined degree from the University of the Sunshine Coast has opened the door to a dream marketing job at the Southbank Institute of Technology for Bray Park’s Rebecca Hammond.
Rebecca, 22, who graduated from USC on 10 April, studied a Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Business, majoring in Graphic Design and Marketing and minoring in Creative Advertising.
Both her marketing knowledge and her design skills have been put to good use.
“I am employed full-time in the Marketing Department as a Marketing Officer at the Southbank Institute of Technology – and I am currently acting in a Graphic Designer role for the institute as it undergoes a restructure,” Rebecca said.
“I love my job! I was lucky enough to have undertaken an Indigenous Cadetship at the institute for the last two years of my degree and they then took me on full time.”
The former Pittsworth State High School student said USC was the ideal place for her to study.
“I was lucky that USC offered a course that allowed me to combine my love for art and design with my business and marketing savvy,” Rebecca said.
“Coming from a small country town like Pittsworth, I knew I was ready for change, but having just finished high school I wasn't quite prepared to move to the big city.
“The Sunshine Coast offered the best of both worlds and I also had some really great tutors along the way.”
