Upon the completion of my degrees at the University of Canberra I decided to venture the world. From the Rocky Mountains of Canada to the traditional streets of Cuba. I travelled through North and Central America before arriving in the UK to look for work and opportunities on the 23rd of November.
As one of my fundamental units of my Bachelor in Communications, my internship was amongst my most valuable. In this role I implemented concepts I had learnt at university whilst further extending my knowledge base of my chosen profession. Copywriting, writing press releases, researching, social media management and editing were all executed during this internship. The clients I primarily worked with were the Bullet Train for Australia Party and the re-branding of Recycling ACT (Australian Capital Territory).
Casually managed a small coffee house in Gold Creek Village, Canberra, Australia. This role continued to develop skills in customer service, self-management and of course; making great coffee.
The George Harcourt Inn assisted in developing organisation skills and delegation skills. As bar supervisor it was my responsibility to ensure that the staff, pub cleanliness and levels of customer intoxication were all at a more than satisfactory level. Meanwhile ensuring that I provided the best customer service possible.
Cash handling, placing bets and developing relationships with the customers were the key components of this role. Whilst not in an industry directly related to the Communications industry, this role improved skills that directly relate to client relationship management.
What started off as a casual cashier and floor boy at the age of 14 eventually developed into a role where decisions about staff management, stock control and running the store were often at my discretion. Alongside customer service, it was also my role to diffuse situations, and respond accordingly and with empathy to any issues that a customer may have had.
