Colliers International was the best professional experience for me. In both the Brisbane and Perth offices, I was working for teams, in which the members were respected and admired in their field, and there was a hard working ethic. But your hard work was acknowledged and it was very much seen as a team effort, including the support of the administrative staff, working towards the team and the company's success.
The hardest part but also a good learning part and overall experience was the high pressure environment. I find that when on the spot and when deadlines are to be met, that I can multi-task and get everything done efficiently. This only happens when something unexpected arises however, as in my typical days at work, my time management and prioritising the workload, and communication with team members, meant that all work was done within the time frame that was needed, and with minimal supervision.
