Tim's Story: Every opportunity can benefit you in the long run.
Career Development Consultant
My first job was picking cabbages on a friends farm, when I thought $40 for a day's work was amazing. My first official job though was working for an Engine Rebuilder after leaving school, I got let go the week before Christmas and was devastated, only to get a call to work as a CSO for NAB the week following. Since then I have worked as a console operator, picked rockmelons, cleaned trucks, attempted concrete form work and even sold Christmas trees in USA. My main career role though as a Church minister has given me exposure to such a large and diverse group of people, developing an understanding about a wide variety of professions. I have realised that no opportunity is wasted if you will keep looking forward, and there is always something you can learn and take away from it.
