Michaela’s career starts looking healthy!

Success Stories

Michaela Quartermaine has kicked off her career journey with a great traineeship opportunity with Directions and Wheatbelt Mental Health Service in Northam.

A Year 12 graduate from Beverley in the Wheatbelt, Michaela was mentored and assisted by Directions Aboriginal Workforce Development Centre (AWDC) in her transition from school to employment. The focus was on equipping her with job-ready skills and helping her prepare for the workforce.

Michaela attended one of Directions’ popular Interview Essentials workshops and two mock interviews, gaining the knowledge and skills to prepare and present herself at a job interview. Additional support focussed on writing cover letters and updating her resume.

When the chance for a Certificate II in Business traineeship became available AWDC Coordinator Brenda De Atta recognised the great fit for Michaela.

Congratulations go to Michaela, who commenced her traineeship in Northam in March where she will further her training and on the job experience over the next 12 months doing office reception work while gaining a nationally accredited certificate in Business. Michaela fills an important role as the first point of contact for clients at Wheatbelt Mental Health.

“Michaela has a friendly personality, big smile, great attitude and could not wait to start her journey as a trainee,” Brenda tells us.
