How did you come to IMVC?
IMVC was looking for a new Receptionist/Administration Assistant (Cert III in Business Traineeship) and a friend who was working for IMVC at the time sent me the application. After a nerve wracking interview I left feeling decently confident, and I hadn’t even made it home from the interview yet when I received a call to offer me the job! Since starting in October 2017, I’ve worked my way through five roles in two years, including IT Assistant, VET Project Officer, IT Support Officer and now RTO Administrator. IMVC is also supporting me to complete my Cert IV in Information Technology – I’ll be forever grateful to the organisation for providing me with so many opportunities in employment and training.
What do you like about working at IMVC?
My favourite thing about working for IMVC is that it is a fast-paced working environment. I am easily bored and always searching for new challenges. This is the perfect place to keep you busy!
What are your future career aspirations?
While working at IMVC I have discovered an appreciation for all things IT, and more recently in compliance. I expect my career path will follow these aspirations.
Who inspires you?
I draw my inspiration from all of the many amazing and powerful people around me, from my mother who raised my siblings and I into the people we have become, to my boss Penny Vakakis who has coached and supported me throughout my time at IMVC, to the strangers who wake up every day and try their best to make the most of the world when it isn’t always an easy place.
What is your best piece of advice?
Don’t take life for granted, and don’t be too hard on yourself. Take the small wins and celebrate everything as much as possible.
