genU Employment Pathways participants were treated to a fascinating interview recently with Morgan Slocombe – the Safety Operations Officer at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG).
Morgan inspired the participants by telling them about his career journey from a humble bartender at the Melton Golf Course, to working his way up the ranks at the MCG. Morgan started out at one of Melbourne’s most iconic sporting venues as a casual security guard, but worked his way up through the ranks to his current position.
The Employment Pathways clients heard from Morgan about what he believed are the key stepping stones for career success, touching on topics including:
- Professional appearance
- Getting out of your comfort zone.
- Taking opportunities when presented.
- The importance of remembering people’s names.
- Going above and beyond when delivering customer service.
Morgan’s story emphasised the importance of persistence and staying true to your goals.
