Being able to give advice

I had a nice surprise tonight one of my former interns asked me for advice on how to find a job in communications in Queensland.

Unfortunately I was never successful in finding a journalism job on the Gold Coast. I ended up working a few years for Spotless, Dreamworld and in telemarketing doing surveys.

I wasn’t using my degree but that was one of the main reasons why I started Celebrate Living History. To use my skills that I was passionate about. I loved learning and if I could I would stay at university forever!

It was that love for learning and writing which sparked an idea that grew into an Celebrate Living History an internship program for journalism students. Nothing makes me happier than being able to give advice and actually being respected for my words.

So while I wasn’t able to give her any contacts, I gave her my favourite words “Never give up, just keep trying.”

I truly believe if you persist then you will get to where you need to be.
