Please note: No Magnus was harmed in the making of this blog update and no, you cannot have him 🙂
Meet Magnus (sometimes known as “Magnusificent”).
What was your first job?
I worked in sales at a car accessories warehouse about three years ago.
Your current job?
Data Analyst and Liaison Ambassador at Ribit, Data61/CSIRO.
Does pineapple belong on pizza? Yes or no.
Yes – Hands down.
Where and what did/do you study?
I studied engineering in my undergrad and now I’m doing my Masters of Commerce in big data and finance. During my undergraduate study with USYD, I had the opportunity to go on an exchange and study in Sweden for a semester. It looks like I’ll be on exchange again (this time in Paris) with HEC Paris School of Management for the semester to come.
Years/Months/Days/Second since last coffee?
1 day and 6 hours ago – I was using caffeine to help me survive a 3-hour night time lecture yesterday. So much for quitting coffee (sigh).
Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
Not entirely sure yet – but something that combines technology, business and maybe even languages, I reckon. In addition to my “usual” career, I wouldn’t mind being an interpreter every now and then – currently learning Spanish and French.*
*Magnus already speaks three other languages so why not add another two?
