Career Story

After I completed university, I took a year off to work to decide what I really wanted to do. I wasn't completely sure at that point and had lots of opportunities I needed to make a decision on (teacher's college, Masters in Counselling, working for the university). After working for a year, I decided to pursue the business world and completed by post-graduate certificate in HR.
