In February, I volunteered at the Sustainable Living Festival for my second (of what I hope to be many) consecutive year. This year’s festival theme was ‘Beat the Heat’, rather ironic really given that our summer was almost non-existent (a testament to climate change, perhaps?), and some days, under the big marquee that was the festival hub, we were screaming out for the heat to leave us alone. There were a number of displays at the festival hub, including a car from GoGet. The hub’s supervisor, Carolyn, had been speaking with the GoGet guy and knowing that I am keen on sustainability and that I was looking for work, she informed him about me, and then me about him when I returned, and told me to chat with him the next day to see if he might have any work going. That GoGet guy, Chas, we had a great chat, and within a couple of weeks, I became a GoGet employee. Almost six months later, I love working as a brand ambassador for GoGet as a part of their Melbourne Street Team. It’s true, I love my job and yes, I am one of those people who stand on a street in Melbourne handing out fliers to people, but you know what, it’s one of the best jobs I’ve ever had. Why? Because I get to plant the seed and educate people about the amazing benefits of car sharing.
