Employee story: Melissa Gozongo – Admissions Consultant

Posted by

Work done with a sense of passion doesn’t feel like work. It’s fun. It’s inspired. It’s what sits at the core of our purpose at HyperionDev – to enable entry into a fulfilling tech career. To achieve that, we examine the strengths of every student and then recommend guidance on a course direction that best utilises their talents and interests.

That’s where a HyperionDev Admissions Consultant comes in. They guide students on how to excel and achieve their educational and career goals.

Melissa has an outstanding gift for knowing how to do precisely this – help students of all walks of life find direction that will lead to the most rewarding career outcomes possible. She understands that every student who leverages HyperionDev’s dynamic offering is a unique individual with their own goals and passions.

We asked Melissa about what moves her in working at HyperionDev and what keeps her motivated to bring every student’s dreams to life.
