Jett Hobbs

Finance Guru

[vc_row][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]have always been interested in maths, because I love how numbers can tell you an exact outcome and not just someone’s interpretation of it.

My area of interest is statistics and finance, as they go hand in hand. Statistical mathematics can be used to describe patterns in finance, such as modelling the constantly changing economy and predicting what could happen in the future.

The most challenging thing for me was leaving school in Year 9 and having to learn new concepts in a short space of time. But the Indigenous Centre at Macquarie University has helped me achieve things I thought were impossible.

When I got involved with the Indigenous internship program CareerTrackers, my dream was to work at the Reserve Bank of AustraliaI thought this was totally out of reach, but I got my dream job within a month!

You can achieve anything you set your mind to – nothing is out of reach. Just be patient and do the work. Many universities have fantastic support programs for Indigenous students, so don’t be afraid to ask for help.
