Yune Chin started working as a Graduate Paraplanner at Suncorp Group three months before graduating a few weeks ago. Yune’s involvement in extracurricular activities, managing casual jobs and volunteering as a Griffith Mate, Career Leader and treasurer of the Golden Key International Honours Society provided invaluable experience for her resume.
The Careers team caught up with Yune to discuss her degree choice, transition from uni to full-time work and tips for new grads.
Yune studied Master of Commerce with a major in Financial Planning from Griffith University.
Why did you choose to study Financial Planning?
I particularly liked the idea of wealth creation and wealth protection – being able to formulate complex strategies to help people achieve their financial goals for the future. Griffith University was the best place to go to as it was one of first tertiary institution accredited by the Financial Planning Association of Australia and the Financial Planning Education Council.
