Jake Troncone isn’t like other first-year University of Wollongong students. His distinction from other students isn’t that he turns up to lectures and tutorials looking extremely smart, but more so the reason behind his formal attire.
Jake studies part-time at the university, completing a Bachelor of Communications and Media, and works full-time in administration as a management cadet.
Jake explains how he gains professional experience throughout his degree as ”for the last 3 years I do an exchange program for 6 months, and then do two 18 month placements in strategic marketing.”
Jake benefits greatly from this opportunity, as he is able to study and gain employment experience simultaneously.
