Here’s how the Employment Hub can help you

Presenting issues

  • A young person contacted the Pathways Hub for assistance with gaining employment
  • The young person had been unemployed and job-seeking for over a year and was discouraged over prospects during the job search.

What we did:

  • Developed a customised support plan related to their employment goals
  • We assisted with revising their resume to be better targeted for the specific jobs they were going for
  • We helped outline employment aspirations and goals
  • Supported to apply for various jobs of interest and assisted with applications

Outcomes

  • This young person received two great job offers in fields of interest
  • They now work between 20-45 hours per week in jobs of their choice

“By the time I came in I was looking for any job in general instead of trying to go for work I would actually enjoy and would suit me. Now I’m a lot more confident about looking for jobs I want. It really did help me cos I’d probably still be looking for work.”
