PhD Candidate: Centre for Human Resource Management

'There are many reasons as to why people decide to pursue a PhD. For some it might be a lifelong ambition, for others it could be a challenge of finding answers to real life problems. For me it was a combination of the two. I wanted my PhD to have relevance.

I chose the UniSA Business School because the Centre for Human Resource Management seemed like a good place to start. It offers a wealth of resources and support for PhD candidates, and has strong ties to industry which makes research not only important but relevant.

As a result, I have had access to some of the leading researchers and methodologists in Human Resource Management and Organisational Studies in the world, and an opportunity to travel.

I have so many options now. This experience has truly opened up more doors than I could ever imagined possible.'

I admit there were hurdles along the way, and doubts in my mind as to whether I could do this, but I have had insurmountable amount of support from dedicated leaders, academics, professional staff and my fellow PhD colleagues.
