I love working at Talent because of its unique approach and ambition with I find compatible with my own experience and mentality; especially its focus on deconstructing and understanding the HSC process which I believe is an integral aspect of HSC success. I also love the working environment, which encourages Mentors to be innovative and take initiative in finding ways to enhance the learning experience of students.
