From Academia to the Employment

It was August 2023, where the MiF team had the pleasure of meeting Ruzvin during the formal launch of 'Mentor it Forward' at the WADSIH Data & AI for Business Conference in Perth. WADSIH is a valued MiF supporting partner, and Ruzvin, a Master's student in Accounting at Curtin University, was assisting with the event. Recognising her ambition and potential, we saw an opportunity to connect her with our 'Mentor it Forward' program and shortly after, she joined as one of the first MiF mentees.

Rukie Jayasekera, a seasoned professional with significant sales experience, known for his extensive professional network, personal branding expertise, and ability to cultivate presentation skills and confidence in mentees, emerged as the perfect match for Ruzvin.

Rukie's mentorship went beyond simply sharing technical knowledge. He delved into areas crucial for career success, working with Ruzvin to refine her professional profile, craft a compelling CV, and hone her presentation skills. Leveraging his vast network, Rukie then introduced Ruzvin to relevant professionals, significantly accelerating her internship search. Through this combined effort, Ruzvin landed an internship that provided valuable real-world experience and propelled her towards exciting career opportunities.

"I wholeheartedly recommend the MiF program to any student or professional seeking to advance their career and achieve their life goals. The support and guidance I received from Rukie and the entire MiF team were instrumental in shaping my success. Thank you!", Ruzvin said.
