Graduate Success

Sophie Maidment

Digital Marketer, Newcomb Digital

“I studied fine arts majoring in graphic design at Whitecliffe for two years, however after I graduated I found it difficult to find permanent work, and realised I had to do something more in line with the current job market. I’d studied at ACG Yoobee in the past and it was amazing, so I decided to come back and study web development. I really enjoyed the course, especially learning about different coding languages and their uses.


“After studying web development at ACG Yoobee I managed to secure a job as an intern at UVLens. The role gave me lots of great overall experience, as I got to work in lots of different areas, not just web development.  My job also covered everything from research and development, to design, to sales and marketing.


“Now I’m working as a digital marketer and designer for Newcomb Digital. They found me on LinkedIn and contacted me to come in for an interview! Again, I’m working in a variety of areas. As well as web development,I’m involved in sales, marketing, design and social media.

“Although design and graphics is my number one passion, I also love writing about entrepreneurs and start-ups doing amazing things. You can check out my blog at Awesome Awesome Co – I hope it inspires people to go out and achieve their dreams. The people I write about have certainly inspired me. My goal now is to own my own start up in technology/design.”
