Cornish students strive to make a difference in the world and this determination continues into adulthood as alumni. Here are some wonderful stories about how our alumni are applying what they learnt at Cornish to their everyday lives.
Following university studies, Catharine Payton (CC2009) interned with General Electric and progressed to a role in the graduate program, gaining experience across a range of businesses throughout the organisation. She has worked in cities in Australia and the United States and currently works as the Projects Finance Manager in General Electric Renewables, overseeing wind farms throughout Australia.
“I really liked the idea of sustainability that Cornish promoted, and I think that’s indirectly related to what I’m doing today,” Catharine says.
When Brett McGeorge (CC2006) began studying German in Year 7, little did he know that it would lead him to work and live overseas. The international-mindedness he developed at Cornish opened up a new world of opportunities.
Brett completed a Bachelor of Commerce and a Bachelor of Arts at Monash University, majoring in marketing, German language and linguistics, before working in Germany, London, and later in Sydney. Since then, he has worked in senior marketing and development roles in the education sector, including his current role as the Director of Marketing and Business Development at Australian Education Assessment Services (AEAS).
