The Honey Badger knows “Skills pay the bills!”

Nick Honey Badger Cummins
We interrupt, to give our network a very important message from The 2018 Bachelor himself, Aussie larrikin Nick “Honey Badger” Cummins. 

“We all know that bills give ya chills, but skills pay the bills, and if you don’t gain the skills, you’re like the kid that fell out of the tree… ya just not in it!”

Well- known athlete and sports personality and now The Bachelor Nick “Honey Badger” Cummins, had been a labourer for a number of years, when he realised “My smoko bill was bigger than my wage”, it was at this point in time he knew he had to take action…

Experience counts, particularly when it’s formally recognised. If you are in the mining, metal, fabrication, and/or manufacturing industries, and have learnt your skills on the job, but do not hold a formal qualification, you should take the time  to have your skills formally recognised!

Badge says:

“If you don’t get recognition for the skills you already have, ya left with the south end of a north bound wombat.”
