What our Consultants say

Samantha Looi

Samantha Looi

Business Analyst

Monash University

Currently, I’m working as a Business Analyst in Open Banking, which is a government requirement for major banks to facilitate data sharing between other banks and third parties, such as budgeting tools. What I learnt from this role was that as a BA, the most transferrable skills are good organization and communication. Technical knowledge is a great asset to have, but I believe the soft skills are what a BA needs first, to be able to effectively assist a team.

Macquarie University

With little experience in the technology industry, FDM’s training program gave me the tools necessary to excel in this line of work. Apart from meeting great work colleagues, FDM gave me an opportunity to work for a large consultancy firm, dealing with a variety of clients and exposing me to potential career opportunities in strategy, risk or project management.
