6:15 AM

My alarm goes off and to be honest I’m not really sure what day it is. After snoozing it for a second time I realise it’s Tuesday and I actually do need to get up and get moving. Rolling out of bed I go and grab breakfast. Through and through I am a breakfast person, I cannot function without it! I quickly get ready and head out the door to catch the bus.

7:00 AM

Thankfully I’m in time for the bus. Once seated I grab out my phone to reply to someone about hair and make-up for my wedding. I’m getting married later in the year and bus rides are one of the few times I have to organise details like hair and make-up.

7:30 AM

I arrive in the City and get off a stop earlier than needed to walk the rest of the way to the office. I enjoy walking part of my commute, it’s a good way to get the blood pumping and some fresh air in the lungs.

Arriving at office

7:45 AM

I arrive in the office, an hour early compared to everyone else. I am currently working on a project with a colleague based in Sydney. Thanks to daylight savings and time differences I have been coming to work earlier so we have more cross over time to work together. The best part is I get to leave early! Marsh is really cool about having flexible hours, “you are not at school so we can be flexible” my manager always reminds me.

8:00 AM

I get stuck into it. I have a data analysis I need to get out asap for our project. Working on this project has provided me with so many awesome opportunities and has helped me to develop a range of different skills. I have been able to work with senior managers in the company and travel to Sydney for work, which was pretty fun.

9:00 AM

Once my analysis has been sent off it’s time for tea! My pod buddy has arrived, another graduate, so it’s a perfect time to grab a cuppa and have a quick catch up. Once back at our desks I go through my emails and start plugging away at the tasks they direct me to do.

stand up meeting

10:00 AM

Online training time. Being an international company we have online training with people from all over the world. Today we have a lady dialing in from the US to train us, pretty cool if you ask me! After training, I go back to clearing my inbox. Us WA grads have been assigned a new project to work on, so we set up a time to meet and start working on it together.

I am starving! I’m a “bring lunch to work” person so I head to the lunch room to heat up my zucchini slice – yuuuuuuum. Our lunch room is pretty cool with fresh fruit and pod coffee for everyone. Extra banana? Don’t mind if I do! I hit the pavement for a stroll around the shops and gardens nearby. It’s always a good idea to get out the office at lunch time too, see the sun and fill up those lungs with fresh air again.

1:30 PM

Back in the office again. I have a phone call with the project manager in Sydney and discuss what he thinks of my analysis and how we are going to move forward with our project. I take notes during the discussion to ensure I don’t forget anything, then begin working on his feedback and preparing for the next stage of the project.

conference meeting

3:00 PM

The other two Perth grads and I meet up to discuss how we will attack our new project. We divide the work and agree on a timeline to get things done. Group work is so much better when everyone is invested in what you are doing. 

Meeting with the grads team

4:00 PM

And it’s a wrap. Coming to work early means I get to leave, so I pack up my stuff and head out. Walking towards the bus I pop into a store near the office, I spied a pair of potential wedding shoes earlier that need investigating. Working in the city can be so helpful when everything is right at your fingertips.

4:30 PM

On the bus again and on my way to my Fiancés house to do some more wedding planning. Life seems to be a little stuck in a cycle of “Eat, Sleep, Work, Wedding Plan, Repeat” and I promise I’m not a bridezilla!

9:00 PM

We have eaten and planned. Now that we have the flowers organised I can go home to crash into bed to do it all again tomorrow.

That’s it, the day in the life of a Marsh Grad. It is action packed, unpredictable, hard work and sometimes a bit stressful. However, more often than not it is enjoyable, full, exciting and most importantly loads of fun, and I would be lying if I said I didn’t love it!
