A new approach and a new start

Success Stories

Andrew Repec had a strong desire to get back into the mining industry, ideally in a full-time contract as a leading hand or machine operator role on a fly-in/fly-out (FIFO) basis. He was referred to us here at Directions by a close family member who could only say good things about the service they had received.

In the past, Andrew had never needed a resume to secure employment. Most of his past jobs were achieved through word of mouth or were offered directly to him. Career Development Officer Vikki Sinagra worked with Andrew to build his very first resume.

In addition, we worked with Andrew to create a career action plan which looked at Andrews’s current situation, skill set, qualifications and employment history, his short term and long term career goals and identified any perceived barriers to achieving those goals.

Andrew has since secured a full-time contract as an All Round Operator. He is very happy about the final result as he likes the diversity of the role and being able to operate various machinery on site.

Andrew is grateful for the assistance he has received and tells us he will be recommending Career Centre services to others seeking employment and especially a resume.
