“If I was to use one word to describe my experience at Hamilton Murphy over the past month, I would say ‘inspiring’. I have met so many brilliant individuals who have both inspired and encouraged me along my journey here, and I feel more than lucky to have had these learning and growth opportunities here at Hamilton Murphy Advisory (HMA).
Before even applying to join the team at HMA last semester, I was just like most students my age – confused and overwhelmed with all the possibilities out there, yet not knowing what I truly wanted out of a career. However, things from the classroom started to make a lot more sense after having worked in a corporate environment, and I have learnt so many interesting and useful things that were never taught in school. In my opinion, one of the best things about working in insolvency was knowing that your work had a real impact on real people, especially people who were in difficult situations. This has inspired me career-wise and given me a much clearer direction in career choices. I feel much more confident and empowered when faced with opportunities and decisions now, and I am grateful for HMA for my growth.
However, the people at HMA were the true highlight of my time here. Everyone is hardworking yet approachable, they are very understanding and are always willing to help no matter how stressful the day is. As someone who was working in a business environment for the first time, I found it much less intimidating than expected; in fact, you can always catch good banter in the office. As a student, I think HMA provided the perfect learning environment for me: it is fun, engaging, but also packed with learning opportunities.”
