Volunteering led me to a full time paid job

Volunteering led me to a full time paid job

After completing a degree in graphic design and struggling to find work for several years, I decided to broaden my skills by completing a Certificate III in Community Services. It was here that I was introduced to the idea of volunteering in my community. One of the opportunities that I found was an administration position with VNQ. I was fortunate enough to also use my graphic design skills to assist with Communications. I am grateful to VNQ for giving me the chance to advance my admin skills with my limited experience in this area. I believe it is the skills I’ve gained and my experience in this very position for the last seven months which has led me to a full time paid administration position in Townsville. Thanks Volunteering North Queensland!
