Jane Apostolopoulos
Assistant Legal Counsel, (Super Grad, 2016)

"I enjoyed attending Conference of Major Superannuation Funds (CMSF) and gaining a deeper understanding of the super industry. It was also really interesting to work with the First Nations Foundation on our community project and applying my skills to help an underdeveloped sector of the community. The program also recognises the development of non-industry specific skills such as team building and project management - these are useful no matter the industry or workplace."

"The 2016 Super Grads program provided me with an excellent head start in the industry. The program gave me the opportunity to learn from industry leaders through the mentoring program and build valuable networks that I will be able to rely on in the future. Completing the Diploma of Superannuation provided me with a strong, working knowledge of the industry. The formal education opportunities were complemented by two industry placements which enabled me to work with organisations that were committed to the profit-to-member ethos."

"Being a part of the Super Grads program was a life changing experience that improved my awareness of the challenges in the super industry. The program provides many opportunities to develop both professionally and personally through attending the CMSF conference, retreat workshops and being paired with an industry mentor. The Super Grads program is truly super and a great place for anyone looking to join the profit-to-member superannuation industry."

"The program stands out compared to others because of its unique focus on the positive culture and values of profit-to-member super. You develop a strong professional network - particularly with fellow grads as you aren't competing for jobs - and gain a range of technical and soft skills. I've completed my Diploma of Superannuation, made good friends and had support in my first year of work. Looking back it's amazing to see how much I've achieved and how much fun I had with the 2016 group of graduates."
