Career Origin Director, Rebecca Stewart is an exceptional ambassador of the MWLP program offering HSC students valuable week long placements in her Narellan based office.  Rebecca tailors the work to suit their needs and duties range from filing and shredding to website maintenance and everything in between.  She is so passionate about Macarthur’s youth that she also encourages students to attend business meetings with her, giving them a wonderful insight into real working life.

Rebecca has been pleasantly surprised by the excellent calibre of MWLP students, including the special needs students she also hosts.  Rebecca comments “Seeing them on their first day and comparing them on their last, is very rewarding.  We enjoy watching the students learn and develop and, on occasion, we have been taught some great skills from them.  I remember one enterprising young person who prepared an amazing power point presentation for us.”

Rebecca adds “I believe there isn’t one business that wouldn’t benefit from taking on a student.  It’s a genuine win-win situation.  Give it a go – just try it!  You never know the experience might even bring you more business.  It has certainly helped ours.”

As this month’s outstanding winner, Career Origin will receive profiling in the Macarthur Chronicle, one month’s free advertising on C91.3FM, exposure on www.mwlp.com.au and thanks to United Cinemas Narellan, Grand Seating movie tickets.
