Justin's paving the way towards networking success



Justin Hawkins started studying at TAFE in 2018 and went on to complete a Certificate IV in Networking, a Certificate IV in Cyber Security and has just completed a Diploma of Networking. 

“The best part about studying at SM TAFE were the wonderful teachers I had. All my teachers taught to an extremely high quality, as well as being really engaged with student learning. I have learnt extensive skills in the areas of networking and system administration and I’m feeling excited and confident to take the next step in my career.”

Justin has just secured a job role as ‘Information Services Officer’ at the Shire of East Pilbara, which was resourced through local tech giant – Techbrain.  He will be providing general ICT support, providing upgrades, installing computers and solving ICT problems for the East Pilbara community. 

This career opportunity allows Justin to pave his way towards a successful IT career, thanks to the likes of an SM TAFE IT lecturer who announced this job opportunity to Justin’s class. 

“I heard about this job through Lyndon, my lecturer. She told the class that a company called Techbrain was looking for an Information Services Officer to go and work in the Pilbara. This sounded like a great opportunity for me, so I applied and attended two interviews, which then won me the position.”

Justin recently returned from a visit to the East Pilbara community where he will be working in this new role. “The short time I was up there I managed to get a real taste for the type of work responsibilities I would have in my new position”. 

“Everyone up there is super friendly and I’m particularly excited to take the next step in my career journey with this job role.”
