Personal Statement

Hi my name is Nikki, I am an Anthropology student, I have recently completed my undergraduate degree and am now conducting my honor's thesis. I have had some experience writing reports, briefings and media from my previous job and am eager to learn more in a new industry. \n\nI am a very driven person and am passionate about the world that I live in. I love learning new ideas and skills and try and make this a part of my everyday life. Whether this is learning a new system at work or grappling with Heidegger I loved being challenged and forced outside of my comfort zone. I love working with different groups to try to understand different concepts. I think this is one of the driving forces for my love of Anthropology. \n\nIf you choose me for a position in your workplace I will be eager to learn as much as I can. I am also very innovative, I have worked in a number of different roles now and love creating new ways of doing things that are better than before.

Employment

  • Electoral Officer at Parliament of Victoria

    During my time of employment I worked within a small office. Initially my role involved basic administrative tasks such as answering phones, responding to email correspondence, managing mail outs, data entry and monitoring local media. Once I was able to complete these tasks with ease and had a grounded understanding of how the office needed to function I began taking on different tasks that involved more research, report writing, parliamentary preparation and media. Research and written work is something that I genuinely enjoy so this sort of work suited me perfectly. During my time working as an electoral officer I had a number of successes working with different ministerial offices and writing media. One of my proudest moments when I first started writing media was when the head of media at the Minister for Planning's Office used one of my media releases on a local issue as a template release across the state.
