Our Career Services had an impact on many people over 2018/2019. It’s a vital service given that most people will have five to seven career changes over their working life.
“Ian” was injured whilst serving in the Australian Defence Force. He came to us to undertake a comprehensive career transition program supported by the ADF. After translating his defence skills and competencies and researching the labour market, Ian realised he wanted to re-train as a bookkeeper. We also helped him improve his job search skills with outstanding results. Ian was offered two jobs in just one week and has subsequently secured ongoing employment and tells us he loves his new career!
It just goes to show that the research is right. People who access qualified career development support are twice as likely to find work than those that don’t.
