Javed’s Story

Javed has been working as a Business Analyst with a good company in Melbourne for the past two years. He feels underpaid and undervalued. He thinks he is not being given more challenging, client facing roles because of his limited communication skills and lack of understanding of Australian culture. He knows his written reports have grammatical errors – another barrier to career advancement.

On top of all that, his colleagues go to the pub every Friday after work. Javed doesn’t drink alcohol and feels uncomfortable being around his work mates after they’ve had a few drinks. He doesn’t understand half of their jokes and occasionally feels as though he is the joke. He is considering leaving his employer but fears it will just be the same anywhere in Australia. Javed feels like he doesn’t fit in.
