More good news from Directions’ Career Centre

Recognition, Success Stories

Stephen Nathan - Construction LabourerOur Career Centre team love to spotlight some of their clients and the strides they make after seeking our help, and this month is no exception. This time we take a moment to congratulate Stephen and Eva.

Stephen Nathan has been a Northam Career Centre client before. Previously we were able to assist him to get into new employment at a local abattoir. Unfortunately he wanted to work more hours than that role was offering so Stephen returned to us for more help and to resume his job hunt.

Directions was able to help his via our jobs board, and providing free computer access for online job searching and applications. Shortly after handing his updated resume to a local construction site and several visits to show his keen interest, Stephen has secured a short term contract as a construction labourer He tells Career Development Officer Vikki Sinagra that he is thoroughly enjoying working in civil construction, which was his preferred industry.

 

Eva Jetta visited our Career Centre in Narrogin for assistance with her resume, addressing selection criteria, and job searching following a long period of unemployment. Eva is an Aboriginal, mature-aged worker who also needed some support with computer skills.

EvaJettaOur Narrogin based Career Development Officer Rebecca Matten helped Eva develop some key skills and now she has created an email address and is practising her computer skills and working hard to improve. Following her recent application to KAATA (formerly known as Kaata-Koorliny Employment and Enterprise Development Aboriginal Corporation )in Narrogin, Eva has now been offered employment working within the Aboriginal community. Eva is also looking to commence a Certificate IV in Aboriginal Health Care once she starts work.

“It has been so helpful to me, especially at my age,” said Eva “we need to learn technology and in this day and age to keep up .”

“I am so excited to start work soon and tap into study.”
