Samantha has also just recently completed her Signage Certificate 3 at Tafe. Being a woman in a non-traditional trade, we asked her about her journey so far.
I did a little bit of work experience at a sign/mechanics company when I was younger and really enjoyed it. I also enjoy being creative so the design side of the trade enticed me as well. It was kind of a mix bag of everything I liked and wanted to do.
At the moment I'm just hoping to continue to learn more even after the apprenticeship ends, perhaps once I get some more experience I might try a bit of subcontracting or start up my own business.
Just do it. Just because you're a woman doesn’t mean you can’t do what you want. This has by far been the best thing I did for my career.
I definitely doubted myself because of my gender but once I started I found there were a lot of women doing the same job. It definitely put me at ease.
