MT Pleasant resident Mia Savic (22) will work alongside the Australian chief executive of a global company for one month.
Adecco Group has offices in 50 countries and offers 50 opportunities annually for graduates to become “CEO for a month”.
Of the 50, 30 this year are women.
Miss Savic joined Women in Oil and Gas three years ago and hopes to be a role model for other female leaders coming through the ranks.
The group promotes diversity within the industry, network with industry experts and work to help the industry retain employees.
She is completing the second year of her two-year Masters in professional engineering with specialisation in chemical engineering from UWA.
“I’m really excited about the opportunity but I’m trying to focus on exams,” she said.
Her role will be a paid position and begins July 4, with travel to Melbourne and Sydney.
She will also blog about her experience on the company’s website.
At the end of the month, Miss Savic will have the chance to apply for one of 10 month-long positions to work for a Fortune 500 company under the mentorship of Adecco Group chief executive Alain Dehaze.
Miss Savic said she was looking forward to the exposure to see what it is like to make big decisions and was keen to see how gender diversity plays out in the company.
She aims to take a management pathway at the end of her studies.
The program won Graduate Recruitment Campaign of the Year at the Recruitment International Australasia awards this year.
