About This Event

Sydney’s job market is packed with hybrid roles that require dexterity across tech skills, coding, analytics and web development are leading the charge.

Maybe you’re thinking: Thanks, but I’m already fluent at what I'm doing now — why change? The answer is simple: because the more you can bring to the table, the more hireable you are.

We're excited to host an evening of great discussions & libations, assembling a panel of alumni in the areas of web development, data science and UX to come together and share their journey with you and how they got to be where they are today. They will give you insight into their roles, help you understand what is needed to get there, and, just maybe, inspire you to make a change.

There will also be a Q&A and a chance to network with the alumni afterwards.

Takeaways

    During the upcoming alumni session you will:
  • Meet the GA team and potential classmates
  • Firsthand advice, tips, and insight on how to successfully break into the tech industry
  • Hear from WDi, DSI and UXDI alumni and have the chance to ask them questions about their experience
  • Discover the perks of being a student at GA

About the Panelists

Jane Hamilton Photo

User Experience Designer & Visual Communicator,
The Friendly Agency

User experience designer and visual communicator, I have over 10 years of visual design experience in the advertising and media industry. Over the past 12 months, I have been busy expanding my creative skill set, successfully completing Award School in 2016, honing my critical, lateral and creative thinking skills. And most recently, completing the User Experience Design Immersive course at General Assembly. I am now using my design super powers and my newly found user experience skills to help solve business and user problems at The Friendly Agency.

Luke Mico Photo

Front End Web Developer,
Pretty Digital


Sydney born and bred, Luke's experience with General Assembly was no less than life changing. Having always had an interest in technology, he decided to make the change from a career in marketing communications, specifically loyalty, digital marketing and social media and found the course offered by General Assembly to make this dream a reality. Luke's interests in coding are quite broad, being interested in front and back-end frameworks but also new technologies, currently focusing on strengthening his JavaScript skills, in order to branch out and tackle new and emerging technologies. He loves to tinker with code to bring ideas to life.

Since graduating from GA, Luke is enjoying life and continuing to build his skillset as a Front End Web Developer at Pretty Digital.

Flora Ho Photo

Admissions Producer,
General Assembly

Flora was working at Foxtel for 3 years as a Production Coordinator before flying over to London for 7 years. Out of the 7 years, she worked in Admissions in Escape Studios, a Visual Effects and Animation education provider for over 5 years before coming back to Sydney and now working in Admissions at General Assembly. Outside of GA, her interests include fishing, hunting for good Vietnamese food places and watching NBA when she gets a chance.

Abhishek Das Photo

Data Scientist,
BCG Digital Ventures

Abhishek completed his PhD in Finance from The University of Sydney and spent several years working with large financials datasets as both a quantitative analyst and later, a portfolio manager. Eventually the datasets got too large and too complicated to be tackled by traditional databases which sparked his interest in Data Science and Artificial Intelligence. Six months ago, Abhishek decided to leave finance behind and enrolled in General Assembly's Data Science Immersive program. For his capstone project he worked with a startup to predict the likelihood of accidents among Uber drivers.

Abhishek is a Data Scientist in BCG Digital Ventures' Engineering team, building scalable AI solutions to tackle challenging business problems. When he's not eyes deep in code you'll find him exercising the right side of his brain as a travel photographer or finishing off one more level of Super Mario Odyssey.
