What were you doing before joining IQ?

I was completing my final year of studies whilst working in retail.

What qualifications do you have?

Bachelor of Commerce majoring in Economics and Management.

Have you used your qualifications/experience during your time in IQ?

The IQ Group has given me the opportunity to utilise the skills I learnt whilst completing my degree. My ability to problem solve through strategy and research whilst working effectively in multi-disciplinary and diverse teams, has proven to be extremely resourceful when communicating confidently with clients and making quick decisions.

Why did you apply for the graduate program in IQ?

Whilst completing my degree I conducted thorough research and instantly felt compatible with the business model of the IQ Group and the consulting industry. I have always enjoyed all aspects of my degree relating to management, project delivery, business analysis and superannuation. The IQ Group is an innovative, reputable and supportive company that has provided me with the opportunity to further develop and expand my proficiencies and expertise to succeed, as a graduate consultant.

What work did you do as a graduate?

As a graduate we were given several exciting opportunities and tasks that further emersed us with the IQ culture and network, whilst further developing our skills and knowledge.

The graduate team and I began with a two-week intensive training program.  This initial training was of great use to prepare us for our client projects where I have since been able to apply the knowledge learnt.  We followed that with additional training over a six month period to complete two, third-party accreditations to further develop our abilities and expertise resulting in RG146 and BABOK qualifications.

I have also been responsible for the project management of an internal project, and completed tasks that included presentations, research and delivery. I feel extremely fortunate to have started as a graduate consultant at the IQ Group.

What has been the highlight of your career with IQ so far?

The IQ Group is full of intelligent and experienced individuals who are willing to provide guidance and support when required. It is such a rewarding organisation to be in, that values everyone and encourages graduates like myself. I am so proud to be a part of the IQ Group and look forward to continuing my journey with IQ.

jeremy MEYN – 2021 GRADUATE

What were you doing before joining IQ?

Before joining IQ, I was working as a data analyst and studying my degree.

What qualifications do you have?

Bachelor of Business (Information Systems) (Applied).

Have you used your qualifications/experience during your time in IQ?

A lot of the things I learned while I was studying does not particularly apply to my experience at IQ.  However, throughout university I was able to develop an analytical and curious mindset which has helped me apply some of the concepts I’ve learned in my role.

Why did you apply for the graduate program in IQ?

When I graduated, I wasn’t too sure what I wanted to do. When I came across the Graduate Program, I was excited to see that I would be able to explore different areas of work in an industry I have never been a part of.

What work did you do as a graduate?

I went through a wide range of training varying from superannuation, insurance, business analysis and more to develop the skills needed, which I have been able to apply on my first client engagement. This has allowed me to further develop my soft skills like teamworking and critical thinking, as well as my technical skills using Microsoft Excel and SQL.

What has been the highlight of your career with IQ so far?

The amount of knowledge I have learnt in such a small amount of time has made me realise how great the IQ people are. I have found it really easy to reach out to anyone for help whether they are a part of my team or not. To have such a great supporting cast to help myself and IQ succeed makes it that much better to be a part of.

What were you doing before joining IQ?

Before joining IQ I was a Graduate Area Manager for a large chain supermarket.

What qualifications do you have?

Bachelor of Applied Science (Psychology), Master of Management (Marketing) and Master of Science (Management).

Have you used your qualifications/experience during your time in IQ?

My studies, travel experiences and previous roles have provided me with a wide range of skills which have been very valuable for me since joining IQ Group. In particular my university study has been quite useful in my current client engagement. I have also been able to put into practice and continue to evolve my critical thinking, problem solving and interpersonal skills.

Why did you apply for the graduate program in IQ?

After having exposure to operations in the retail sector, I was drawn to professional services and consulting which provides the opportunity to work across different companies, industries, and roles.  I was drawn to IQ Group because they could provide me with the opportunity to work in the consulting industry.  The prior year graduate profiles highlighted how IQ supports their graduates with training, providing the opportunity to have a senior mentor and experience on client site all of which appealed to me.

What work did you do as a graduate?

I have been fortunate to be involved in many different opportunities so far.  My first few months involved a lot of training which gave me a great foundation. I was then paired with a senior consultant who was working with a private health insurer as a change management analyst. I am also involved in internal projects which has provided me with additional opportunities to put into practice what I have learnt during the initial training.

What has been the highlight of your career with IQ so far?

Over the past six months, I have been positively challenged through my training and client engagement.  I have felt extremely supported and encouraged by the strong leadership team, and my IQ colleagues are very friendly and welcoming.   IQ Group has provided me with the opportunity to personally and professionally grow and I am looking forward to continually evolving my skills. I have especially enjoyed working alongside the other graduates.
