Suma Ayyappan graduated from Federation University Ballarat in 2014 with a Master’s degree in Software Engineering.
Despite her qualifications, Suma found it challenging to secure a role as a software engineer.
Most recently Suma had been working as an IT Test Administrator and IT Course Coordinator. She really enjoyed her job, especially supporting University Students with their applications.
But there was always something missing, so Suma signed up with Generation Australia as a Trainee Developer, and gained a couple of Salesforce Certifications.
When Suma started volunteering at Blaze Your Trail she told us that her 3 - 5 Year Goal was to become a Team Manager or Project Manager as she really enjoys talking and problem solving.
So it's wonderful news that Suma has joined the team at AAkonsult Pty Ltd this week as a Salesforce Partner. Suma is very happy to be part of a small team who are so welcoming.
A combination of her engineering background, the Salesforce specific training, and the practical work experience at Blaze Your Trail meant that Suma was confident going into the interview.
Suma loves to travel with her family and spend time with her three boys aged 13, 7 and 5.
