Sarah Alderson - Business Admin
When I left school, I was really keen to get straight into a full time position, but I still wanted to further my education.
I found out that I could do an office traineeship through CIT where I would work for four days a week, and study for one and it seemed like the perfect combination of both elements.
I started as an office trainee at ActewAGL, and as part of the traineeship completed the Certificate III and IV in Business Administration at CIT.
I found being able to take what I had learnt in the classroom and apply it directly to on-the-job situations a great way to learn and develop my confidence in my ability.
All of the skills I developed I use on a daily basis to carry out my job now. The practical nature of the training I received meant when I came to apply my knowledge in the workplace it was a smooth and easy transition.
Doing the traineeship encouraged me to go onto further study, and I am now studying the Diploma of Business Administration.
Completing the traineeship was the best life decision I have made. Not only has it bettered my skill set but it has allowed me to show my workplace that I am a capable young woman who is determined, strong-willed and passionate about what she would like in life.
