Cody came West and found a new career

Success Stories

Cody Hecker moved to Western Australia from Victoria just a few months ago and had been seeking employment in the local area.

After checking out Directions’ Career Centre services, Cody was very happy to find out that there was free access to computers, internet and printing services for career development and job seeking right here in Northam.

Cody first visited in early August where he received assistance to create a career action plan. He also attended Career Centre’s Resume Essentials workshop where leaned more about self-marketing and tailoring resumes to various roles.

Cody’s preparatory work with our team has paid off and he has now secured full time employment with a local steel fabrication company working as a manufacturing assistant performing moulding tasks. A far cry from his former work experience in the hospitality sector. Cody is really enthusiastic about learning all aspects of his new role.

Cody told us he really appreciated the conveniently located service on the main street of Northam and the well set up facilities for job searching.

“The (Directions) staff were extremely helpful, friendly and knowledgeable especially with local employment information” Cody also shared.
