When I first decided to study with OTEN, It was more a decision I had made out of boredom. I was for Mercedes-Benz Sunshine Coast for about a year as a receptionist, which I’m sure anyone can agree that answering phones for a living isn’t exactly something you dream big for. I always had a keen interest in accounting and numbers had always been my strong point. Failure to complete year 12 had me reluctant to try or that I would even be eligible. I gave it a go and enrolled in Certificate IV Accounting. As my job progressed as did my understanding of what I was studying. I gained extreme confidence workwise and as management could see my progress I took on more and more. One problem - I was still just the receptionist. Eventually my Certificate arrived, I dropped this under my bosses nose and with a bit of umming and aaahing he made me Assistant financial controller. Which came with many advantages. (see pic attached). I am now on my way to getting my degree which would have never been possible without the help of OTEN and its teachers. Thank you OTEN, you have changed my life.
