So where to get great coffee in Brisbane cbd?
« on: 18/11/2015, 09:25 AM »
I'm just about to board a flight heading to Brisbane for a job interview and will be needing a coffee before and after. Any good places around Ann St?

Hi GK not sure if you've got access to a mobile device, but there's a whole thread on Brisbane coffee just above this thread… looks like last post was 2013, but I'm sure you'll find some of the recommendations still good; would be interesting to see what more recent recommendations come up tho...

thanks admin. I didn't even get a chance to grab a coffee.

Not all is lost though as I'm heading straight into the Virgin lounge for a beer or three.

what sort of job are you going for - is it photography-related?

I would rather drink tea than Nespresso. /shots fired.

I wish it was a photo job. I was interviewed by CQUni for a lead role here in Melbourne in post graduate education.

So I got a call today for the aforementioned interview. And yes I scored the gig.

Looks like I'm going back to Academia to lead Project Management education for CQU in Melb.

Now I need to dust off my PhD, BSc and GradCerTerEd certificates. (Just thought I'd put that in ;) )

The great thing is I've still got a few more weeks of being at home with baby so time to make the best of it. Might take the fam for a bit of a get away. Bub will be 6 months in a couple weeks times. How time flies.

Wow... Dr GK!! Or are you Assoc.Prof. GK?  I don't have a PhD but when the kids are older there's a study I'd like to collect some data for.  My education stopped at a MPhil :(

What was your topic?

hi Brett. I left academia in 2008 to manage R&D projects in medical imaging / disease management and since then I also got into Optometry program development and accreditation. I was the project manager in both roles. I also did some short term consultancies in between.

Now I'm getting back into academia but not in my discipline (electrical engineering) but instead in project management.

I was sponsored by Ericsson (Sweden) for my Ph.D and my topic was around the development of novel algorithms to save battery power in 3G mobile handsets. I completed my PhD in 2003. I'm 36 years old now.

Wow... You're a Wunderkind!! That's a brilliant academic rise though the ranks and at such a young age. No wonder you're so adept at so many things!  Kudos my friend!!
