Candidate's Resume

 

Overview

Since graduating with a Bachelor of Arts (Media and Communications) from Melbourne Univeristy mid-2010, I've worked full-time as a journalist in the Melbourne Talk Radio newsroom. This position has given me the opportunity to gain ample on-air experience through reading the news, as well as report on stories ranging from state politics to the Logies.

I'm currently completing my Master of Laws (Juris Doctor) through Monash University on a part-time basis. Although my priority at this point is to further my career in the media, I am also keen to gain experience in the legal field to broaden my future employment opportunities.

I take a lot of pride in my work, and am self-driven. I'm confident, and work well in a team situation, and am also capable of taking on a leadership role. I enjoy the balance between carrer-related work and study, and am committed to putting my best effort into both endeavours.
