Michael Read was eager to build a career path around one of his two passions in life; fitness and working with vehicles. He had been a committed and active job seeker for the last year, seeking an apprenticeship or traineeship that would see him launched on that career journey.
Michael first visited Directions in 2017 to get copies of his resume printed to drop off to local employers. He quickly realised that achieving his goals would require a more structured approach…and some creative thinking.
Directions’ Career Centre team gave him support and advice around constructing a strong covering letter, job application methods and several resume reviews to ensure his applications were tailored to each job being applied for. After pursuing opportunities from Northam to the Perth metro area Michael’s patience paid off via a vacancy advertised on Facebook (one of the newest ways employers are advertising vacancies).
Michael has been successful in gaining a Trainee Personal Trainer position for a large gym and fitness centre in Perth. He will be completing a Certificate III and IV in Fitness in conjunction with on the job training to become a qualified personal trainer.
