HOW I GOT THE JOB | EPISODE 2
Jarrad was sure he was destined to be a teacher. During his high school work placements, he spent some time at a primary school and then at a graphic design firm. Impressed with his design skills, Jarrad’s supervisor offered him an apprenticeship.
Despite never considering a career in design before, Jarrad discovered this was something he wanted to pursue. With stellar grades, Jarrad completed qualifications in Graphic Design and Web Development and was recognised by the Australian Training Awards for his work. He’s now running a successful design firm in Sydney and teaching Web Development and Graphic Design at TAFE.
The How I Got The Job series shows young Australians talking about how Vocational Education and Training (VET) helped them to find direction and achieve success in a field they’re passionate about. There are a lot of misconceptions about VET. Yet, through this series we learnt these pathways help build real skills for real careers and open up a variety of employment opportunities across lots of different industries.
