"Rose's Cutting Through for a Career in Hairdressing"


SHE may be only 16-years-old and still at school, but Tivoli’s Rose Munt is rapidly making herself the resume wizard of Sarina Russo Job Access Goodna.


A year-11 Ipswich State High School student, Rose has chosen to spend her holidays wisely, investing in her future at work as a School-Based Traineeship instead of staying up late and sleeping in.


“I am doing a Certificate III in Business and my end goal is to become a hairdresser or a beautician – I definitely want to do something in the beauty industry when I finish school,” Rose said.


“But for now, I work three days a week when the school holidays are on and my responsibilities include updating the Jobseekers’ resumes when needed and updating the office diary, answering the phones and general administration stuff.


“It’s great experience for me and I love working with my supervisor Kimberley Tripp and the team at Sarina Russo Goodna, it’s a great opportunity.”


Having commenced her Traineeship on May 31, Rose will this week celebrate NAIDOC Week 2019 – a hugely special time for her and her family’s Aboriginal culture.


“It’s a very happy week for my whole family and myself,” Rose said.


“Being Aboriginal, NAIDOC gives us an opportunity for us to come together as a family and rejoice our culture.


“And, I am working on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday which makes it an extra special week for me.”


Sarina Russo Job Access Goodna Manager and Rose’s supervisor Kimberley Tripp said Rose was a delight to work with.


“Having Rose as part of our team not only provides support to the Goodna office, but also teaches her valuable skills in the work place and allows her to gain further qualifications to assist in gaining employment when she finishes school,” Kimberley said.
