Currently working for:
Whyte Just & Moore Lawyers
What was the recruitment process?
I applied directly to the firm for a Traineeship in 2009. I undertook a number of interviews and was selected for the position. Upon completion of my Traineeship and Admission to the Supreme Court in 2011, I was offered a full-time position as a first year lawyer.
I think having studied and lived in Geelong during my course gave my firm the confidence that I knew the region and would be keen to stay here and work post my Admission.
Position title and short job description:
Lawyer - working primarily in the areas of Commercial and Wills and Estates Law.
Working highlight so far:
Being able to meet Judges and other members of the profession on a social level.
What are the things you enjoy most about your job?

Continue developing my legal career and gaining experience and see where it takes me
