Chris gets not one but two jobs!
Looking for work is hard enough at the moment but when you have just arrived from another state into a regional area it can be very hard to know where to start.
That was the position Christine Jetson found herself in when a friend suggested she contact Directions’ Workforce Development Centre in Northam.
Chris was an all-rounder with lots to offer an employer and was keen to work but needed support building on her computer skills and lacked confidence looking for work in a new and unfamiliar area.
Our Career Development team assisted her to revamp her resume, including local referees, and refocussing it on the skills Chris had to offer. Chris also created a ‘work wanted’ ad for herself to place on noticeboards and posted in and circulated her new resume in Toodyay, Northam and York.
As a result, Chris now has not one but two jobs and is already planning to undergo further training in first aid and Responsible Service of Alcohol to further expand her skills and job opportunities.
“Directions is a wonderful self-help organisation that is supportive and helpful. Definitely helped me get work ready.”
Thank you Chris, and congratulations to you!
