Type of work: Full time, part time and casual

Location: NSW

About me: My name is Mandii Carr and I am in my final year as Bachelor of Communications student, where I am majoring in Public Relations. Additionally, I also hold my Bachelor of Arts where I majored in Cultural Anthropology. Outside of my studies, I’ve also been fortunate enough to have casual roles as a professional staff member at Western Sydney University as well as working between retail and the hospitality industries. On a more personal note, I am 31 years old and live in the Penrith area with my roommates. I have extensive experience working in a large organisation, such as Western Sydney University. Our University has over 2000 employees and 10 campuses across Australia. I’ve also been employed by various divisions at Western Sydney University which highlights my ability to adapt to new challenges, tasks and grow in a company. I have been lucky enough to work in Research Services, providing general administrative support to my team. I have experience working in meetings and have skills in minute taking and creating agendas and working within timeframes in accordance to the procedures. More recently, I have been working as a project assistant in the Office of the Vice-Chancellor, working on delivering communications for the Centre for Western Sydney. I am able to work autonomously and within a team, which I have highlighted during my time at Western Sydney University, from my early beginnings as a student representative until my most recent position. I work within ethical frameworks and have had the opportunity to sit on panels and sit in on meetings with sensitive content ensuring all participants’ confidentiality was retained. On top of these skills, I have also worked in retail, selling shoes to adult products. I have incredibly refined interpersonal skills as well as impeccable communications skills, including managing conflict resolution. I am innovative and goal-orientated with a strong work ethic, particularly when I am passionate about my role. While I understand your company may be taking a risk by opting to employ me, I can assure you all that you will not regret it. I am looking to create a career where I can grow with the company I am working with. I am looking forward to hearing from you in regards to this role. Warmest regards, Mandii

Name: Zhi Wei Ong


Phone: 0450 807 701

Type of work: Full time and part time

Location: WA

About me: I'm at Public Relations graduated from ECU. I’ve worked in a marketing department in the past (2017-2018) based in Beijing and had developed successful brand recognition for a number of beers imported from France through several different platforms (On Trade, Off Trade, restaurants and bars across the city). Job scopes included managing sponsoring events through budget planning, POS material design, and brand strategising. I had also worked with a craft beer brewery in Beijing (2015-2018) – General Manager Assistant and Import Operator. Apart from assisting day-to-day job and reporting to General Manager: Prepare and record meeting minutes, my role as import operator included: prepare and coordinate shipments of beer from several breweries throughout different countries. Manage communication in liaison with overseas breweries, and duties such as translating product label, health certificate, lab reports to submit to customs in China. Apart from that I had also spent 3 months of internship for the marketing department at Panda Brew and successfully organised a product launch event working along with the team. I’ve left the city in 2018 and decided to pursue the major of Public Relations and hence officially a fresh grad at the moment. I’ve recently volunteered to be part of the organising team for a virtual event named Money Debates Virtual Summit 2020 for 3 months (July-Sept), and I was involved in managing the back-end system (HeySummit), coordinate speakers and moderators, prepared social media posts and successfully ran the webinars as a host on Zoom for a 5 days virtual event. I have a strong passion and desire to work in the communications field. Over the years I’ve also gained cross-cultural skills adapting myself to live in different countries with an opposite cultural environment and language, hence working in a team environment with any diversity is easy for me, and I thoroughly enjoy it. Although it’s been a while being in the work environment, I’m willing to learn and further progress to gain knowledge and develop my skills.
