After school I completed my Certificate II in Business Administrations at my local TAFE campus. After finishing I was unable to continue with my studies on campus any further. I worked for a couple of years and then one day I stumbled across OTEN online. I worked through my certificates and in 2012 I felt great happiness when I finished my Diploma in Business Administrations. It was so useful to be able to study via distance because it meant that I was able to maintain a full time job and study in my own time at my own pace. I had a few different jobs but it wasn’t until I completed my Diploma that I was able to get a great administrative role working in a not for profit organisation that assists Refugees and Asylum Seekers. I used my knowledge to organise events, work in finance and provide other administrative services. I was always well supported by my teacher, felt motivated to complete it and learned a lot along the way! Completing my Diploma was great achievement, I felt so inspired that soon I will be completing my Community Services Diploma, also through OTEN.
