Industry Live to explore the topic “Apprenticeships and traineeships” on February 25
Join Beacon’s next Industry Live on Thursday Feb 25 11.30am to 12.30pm AEDT.
Hear from some of the leading organisations that can help you land a great apprenticeship or traineeship, no matter your background or location. We’ll also hear from apprentices and trainees on how they got from school to their current role and how you can too!
Our panellist is Chelsea, a Heavy Duty Diesel Mechanic. Chelsea has always loved working on cars and always played with the idea of being a mechanic, but just didn’t know for sure if it was the right option for her. Chelsea completed Year 12 then started a baking apprenticeship. But a few things made Chelsea realise being a baker wasn’t right for her, and so she moved on to a Big W supervisor role and then roles as a warehouse store person and in real estate before finally deciding to pursue that early dream, take a leap of faith and apply for a diesel mechanic apprentice position with Cummins. It turns out that her work experience along the way actually helped Chelsea nail her interview, and now having started her apprenticeship her employer rates her as one of their best apprentices. Chelsea has big dreams for her career and is excited to have the opportunity to share her tips and tricks for young people looking to start an apprenticeship, including how to trust your gut and find your dream career.
