    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Queensland Government full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Everyone was always kind and supportive even during the bushfires and covid. I did data entry for all government agencies and processed audits on client details. I am IT savvy and used my expertise on the computer to excel and advance above my peers. There is adequate opportunity for promotions in this job. Participated in remote work from home too, and it was the most advanced platform for it I have ever seen.

    Cons

    Restructure of department due to advancing technologies hinders job advancement opportunities from time to time.
