“A positive outcome for me is that I think I know what I want to do when I grow up. All the staff that talked to us have helped heaps in putting me in the right direction because I had no idea what I wanted to be. Now I want to go down the path of engineering. And now that I know that I can focus on what I need to be doing to be an engineer and that’s a positive outcome for me.
“Before the Work Inspiration program, I hadn’t been thinking about engineering at all. I was worrying about thinking about a job, but I never went down the path of engineering or mining.
“Now I think I want to be a health and safety engineer. I talked to one of the health and safety engineers and he reminded me a lot of myself. He generally cares about people’s safety and wellbeing. He ran a little program about what a health and safety engineer does. It was only 10 minutes but a lot came out of it for me.
“I would like to express my gratitude to everyone who presented and participated in our program. We were provided with a great insight to an industry that I personally did not know much about and given some great gifts to take home to wear and use. My favourite being the shirt that I wore home on the train!
“All the staff were professional and informative and the facilities were most impressive. Overall it was an amazing experience. The people I interviewed were obviously hard at work but they closed their computer and talked to us. Everyone was really welcoming to the students. I loved it so much and I wish I could do it again.”
