Noongar man, Daniel Dzubiel is right on track to achieve his career goals after joining the METRONET Yanchep Rail Extension Project as an Environmental Undergraduate through the CareerTrackers internship program.
Daniel, who is finishing a double major in Environmental Science, Environmental Management and Sustainability at Murdoch University, joined the project in November last year to gain first-hand experience in environmental management on a major infrastructure project.
Having developed a passion for science and biology at a young age, Daniel always knew he wanted a job working with animals and ecosystems. His passion continued through high school and he set his sights on environmental science at university.
“Working on the Yanchep Rail Extension project gives me the chance to experience the day-to-day activities involved in a construction job, which range from heading out to site for inspections, recording dust monitoring data, compiling environment plans and documentation, or water monitoring at the various catchments on site,” Daniel said.
“When I graduate, I can definitely see myself working in construction and getting out on site every day, as helping manage environmental impacts is something I really enjoy.” Through the Gnarla Biddi Aboriginal Engagement Strategy, METRONET is committed to providing training and career opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students like Daniel.
