The Careers service is a fundamental part of the Leo Cussen PLT program. We want our graduates to leave Leo Cussen with the best chance of getting into the career path that they are passionate about and enjoy a truly fulfilling and successful career.
Outside of supporting Leo Cussen grads, Jacinta loves to cook and working her way through a favourite recipe at the end of the day is a great way to switch off and get some mental separation between work and home. She enjoys spending time with her family and pet dog, Benny. And what is Jacinta’s go-to coffee? While not considered acceptable by many within Melbourne’s coffee drinking community, Jacinta loves a good decaf latte.
