When I first arrived in Sydney I began looking for jobs online, and I came across Sidekicker. When I went to the interview I was so charmed by the happy and friendly atmosphere! I loved the company instantly.
What has been your favourite job so far?
My favourite was a catering job I did for a couple’s charity fundraiser.
It was at the Bondi pavilion, which I don’t need to tell you has stunning sunset views.
The people there were interesting, genuine, smart, and so kind! All of us working felt as if we were also attending the party! They even sent us home with a bunch of delicious food.
What do you do outside of Sidekicker?
I’m a nature junky. I love surfing, hiking, swimming, beach lounging, and just walking around in the fresh air. Back in the states, I was studying biology.
What‘s attributes do you think a top Sidekick should have?
Be open, enthusiastic, and have a good attitude in general!
Life is so precious; it’s such a waste to be annoyed or bored while working.
A positive perspective makes you a better employee and it also makes the workday fly by ?

Of course! It’s so simple to apply for jobs on my phone.
