What participants say about Industry Placements

“I had working experience in IT industry back in Malaysia. After moving to Adelaide, I was having trouble applying for an IT role because I didn’t have local IT experience. While browsing through IT courses on the TAFE SA website, I came across the partnership with DXC Technology for students to gain work experiences through a work placement program.  I enrolled without hesitation.

The course units not only include technical troubleshooting skills which I get to apply into practice at DXC, it also includes soft skills such as customer service and the lifecycle of IT requests.”
