    I joined the Department's Environment and Resources Policy team in September 2000, after working in line agencies across the Queensland Government.

    I am originally from a small city near Xian in western China (the home of the famous terracotta warriors), but I am now an Australian citizen, a Queenslander. I arrived in Australia in 2001 to take up my graduate diploma in accounting at Macquarie University, and applied for residency under the skilled migrant category.

    Ben, past graduate

    I have been able to gain a comprehensive understanding of how government operates on a daily basis. It has been highly rewarding to be involved in areas that work closely with the Cabinet and Executive Council processes and I have gained a greater insight into the inner workings of government that many people would never get the chance to experience.

    It has been an incredibly rewarding and fun experience. In a short couple of months, I have worked on some important projects and gained a hands-on understanding of government processes. I have also met some wonderful, inspirational people, made some new friends, and established connections with people in other departments.
