Australian Graduate looking to gain experience

Alysha Merrett

Hi everyone. I am new to the site, and would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. I hold a Bachelor of Archaeology from La Trobe University, and am hoping to graduate from RMIT with a Diploma in Information Management next month. My aim is to gain experience in the Archaeology/Heritage sector, and eventually combine these qualifications in some way. I am currently on my P's (Manual) and although I am based in Melbourne, I am willing to consider relocating. If you are aware of any suitable opportunities, feel free to contact me at: Thank you for you consideration.
