Meet Tanika O'Brien

Tanika O'Brien

What are you doing now?

I am a content and community specialist at Digivizer, a data-driven company that helps businesses to make better decisions about their investment in digital marketing.

What motivated you to choose this career path?

After seeing my sister Kiana thriving in her career at NAB following her studies at Macleay, I knew the college was fundamental to me getting  industry knowledge. The Digital Media course Macleay offered exactly what I was looking for – a broad introduction into all of the areas of digital.

What was the Macleay experience like?

I really enjoyed the fast-paced, one-year Diploma of Digital Media that Macleay offers as I was super eager to get into the workforce and start learning on the job. The small classes were so beneficial and really suited my personality.

I learn best when asking questions and was able to have a personable relationship with the teachers – they really care about all their students.

Where did you intern?

I began interning two days a week at Digivizer in January 2017, while studying at Macleay three days a week. I definitely wouldn't have been able to obtain my internship without the backing of Macleay's education. After interning at Digivizer for six months, they offered me a full-time job in the Creative Services team once I had finished my course at Macleay.

What advice would you give to current Macleay students?

Be a sponge. Absorb as much as you can. There is so much knowledge to be shared by the teachers, peers and all the resources Macleay offers which is invaluable.


Tanika was employed by Digivizer for two years and then moved to the National Rugby League to take up a role as a Social Content Producer.
