“My family is from Allambee South in Gippsland, where my dad ran a dahlia farm, and I’ve just come back from a year working in Japan as a waiter.
I would like to go to university to study finance, with the goal of working in financial crime prevention later on. I hoped that my work in an international hotel would help me in finding a job here in the meantime, and I thought that being bilingual might help, too.
But it’s so competitive – I got statistics from Seek saying that 100 people went for the last job I applied for. In Australia, they look for your Australian experience before anything else.
Tennis Australia is a big, international organisation, so I am looking forward to working with and meeting people from all over the world. I hope the experience is going to help me get my foot in the door in Australian employment.”
