Deciding she wanted to take a gap year from university in 2020, Eboni Frid was able to find employment at the Better Movement Clinic (BMC), an allied health facility in Dalby.

Being her first job after school, Eboni said she's been able to learn new skills during her one and a half year tenure, while helping others in the process.

"My favourite part of the job is interacting with all of the clients, because they're all different ages and they come in for different reasons, so just seeing them meet their goals and improve their general health is great," she said.

"Interacting with them, and a putting a smile on their face makes my day really."

BMC offers several health services including exercise physiology, dietetics, remedial massage therapy, and more, with Ms Frid saying people from all walks of life come to the centre.

"They come here for certain health concerns, or they want to improve their health and wellbeing, and it's not easy coming here for the first time," she said.

"It's very brave, so they need someone that's approachable, and I always try to be friendly, and never judgmental."

The delightful working atmosphere is one of the perks confessed Eboni, saying she's really "lucked out" with her job.

"They're really supportive of our personal life, and there's a great work/life balance here," she said.

"They make the place, and I don't think I would want to work anywhere else.

"It's a bonus that you work with the people you like hanging out with."

After finishing school in 2017, Tahleya Buckley was looking for a job that was interesting, and had something different everyday, and found Waminda Services in Dalby.

Nearly three years later, she's been an integral part of the team, helping as a receptionist at the disability support centre.

"I love the clients and the people, they just have big hearts," she said.

"When they come in everyday, they put a smile on my face."

Waminda Services offers support to those with disabilities at their centre through programs, along with in home support and short term live in assistance.

Tahleya now gets to work with her friendly team everyday, and believes she's the right person for the job at Waminda.

"I like being up the front and meeting new people, and I always try to be as nice as I can," she said.

"We're in an organisation that helps people, and I love being able to do that.

"It's something different everyday."

Mitch Tucker's rise through the ranks at Nelson Family Meats in Jandowae has been due to his hardworking attitude over the years at the butcher shop.

Mitch first began working at the business when he was in Year 8 as the "clean up kid", before applying to be an apprentice in 2017.

"It's something I got as a job after school and I've stuck with it," he said.

"I enjoyed it, just cutting stuff up, playing with knives, and talking to people.

"I just have an interest in it."

His co-workers are an added bonus, with Mitch saying it makes work a lot better when you have "good people to work with".

One of his more memorable moments at the butcher shop was being selected as an apprentice, and the progress he's made from there.

"Knowing that I started something after school, and it led to somewhere in the end is pretty great," he said.

"And for why I was nominated, I guess people think I'm well mannered, and they get great service.

"They just love seeing me."

Chloe Casey (The Look Hair Studio)

Working at The Look Hair Studio for close to two years, Chloe Casey has been able to flourish in a social atmosphere as a hairdresser.

Now a recent high school graduate, Chloe is now working as a hairdresser full time at the salon in the Dalby CBD, and loves being able to roam as a "social butterfly".

"I do enjoy my job, because I get to be social by meeting so many new people," she said.

"I'm a social butterfly, just going around talking to everyone.

"I get to find out all of the goss in the process."

Chloe believes she was nominated for her stellar service, while also enjoying the stylish cuts she delivers on a daily basis.

There's been a lot of good times at the hairdressers for Chloe, however she said the best times are when people drop combs, and have to buy a carton for the team.

"We don't drop combs for obvious reasons," she said.

"But when people accidentally do, it's a carton for everyone."
