Improve your employability with online study

Shaun Hutchins March 18, 2019

The current job market can be very competitive even for those who have years of professional experience. Wife and mother of two, Natalie found this out first hand. We spoke to Natalie about how she used her Diploma of Business Administration to boost her chances for employment.

Adding qualifications to experience

After working in administration for over a decade, Natalie suddenly found herself out of work and without any formal qualifications. Natalie decided to begin a Diploma of Business Administration at Swinburne Online in an effort to boost her career prospects and re-enter the workforce with confidence.

“I soon realised how competitive the market is so I wanted to formalise my skills and boost my chances of employment.”

Achieving success

While Natalie completed her diploma, she also worked as a secretary for her husband’s cricket club and began working full-time, often finding it difficult to find the time and energy required to complete her course. Natalie managed to achieve her goals by dedicating a set amount of time to study that really suited her busy life.

“I found that setting aside an hour or two each night really helped me achieve my goals… I am so proud of myself for achieving them, and my family is proud of me too, which means the world.”

Post qualification

After completing her Diploma of Business Administration Natalie feels much more confident in her current role. Her studies have also assisted her to earn a promotion to an Administration Manager.
