What are you studying/doing for your career at the moment and how do you feel your time at STC helped you get to where you are now?
Currently, I’m working as a Systems Analyst in the Information Management Unit at the Ministry for Health. I had always contemplated continuing my studies to enhance my abilities and obtain more qualifications for career advancement opportunities. As a result, in 2017 I decided to go to back to school. In September of that year I started my first course (Diploma in Computing) with STC, as STC offers very interesting courses. After finalising the diploma I went ahead to apply for the BSc(Hons) in Cybersecurity. Having a full-time job and undertaking a part-time degree course at times was quite challenging, but I always tried to remember the end goal: attaining a degree qualification. At STC, I found comprehensive and helpful lecturers and staff that helped me do just that.
Would you recommend STC to students considering a career in computing and business, if yes, why?
As the current Covid situation demonstrates, I think that the future is in IT. Therefore, if you always wanted to start studying and maybe get a job in this sector, do not think twice, go ahead start today. Digital era is now more than ever.
What position do you see yourself in the next 5 years?
In the next 5 years I see myself working for the government or for a financial organisation, being part of their cybersecurity team. Preventing, fighting, and investigating attacks and improving their system.
