Natasha relocated from Harvey Bay to the Gold Coast this year and started the 3rd R U BUSY? Course for 2013 with high hopes that she would get employment within the hospitality industry. Natasha’s passions are to work in this industry as well as eventually opening up a Café/kitchen which feeds less fortunate people within the community and the customers pay a donation to what they feel the food is worth. Natasha applied for many roles within the Gold Coast and finally got an interview at Hungry Jacks. Natasha gained part time employment whilst on the course, but maintained her attendance to complete her Certificate 2 in Self Awareness and Development. Natasha works out the back cooking the burgers and learning all aspects of cooking, which is something she is very passionate about. Natasha is excited to be working at Hungry Jacks and eventually down the track will look at gaining a 1st year Chef Apprenticeship once her confidence has improved in the kitchen.
When asked about how the program has helped her, Natasha stated “since starting the course at BUSY At Work I have been able to get a job. I also now have a lot more confidence and believe I can do anything.”
Rebecca proudly says “Natasha’s passion for working in the hospitality industry was really positive because she was determined to gain employment as soon as she could. When Natasha first came to the R U BUSY? course, she had recently relocated and had no network of friends as well as low confidence. Since getting her job at Hungry Jacks and completing the R U BUSY? course, her confidence and positive attitude has increased immensely. Natasha has gone from strength to strength!”
