Carmel – flexibility and initiative
Carmel has been working at the Catholic Schools Office in Wagga Wagga for 21 years.
“I’m good at my job because I have a good memory and I’m flexible. I also use my initiative,” she says. These skills are perfect for her job as office assistant, which requires her to be complete a wide range of tasks.
“My job is important because it gives me independence,” Carmel says.
