Soni contacted South East Community Links (SECL) for assistance and she was offered employment support through the Community Employment Connector program. Her Employment Connector engaged with Soni with the aim to develop trust and a strong employment plan. This plan included building her confidence and motivation to engage with employers and look for jobs independently.
Improved job search skills
The SECL Employment Connector supported Soni to develop a strong resume, cover letter and build her capacity to apply for jobs online. They also linked Soni with a Jobs Victoria Employment Services (JVES) provider to source available jobs.
Improved motivation and confidence
Soni was offered an interview at Metro Trains for a train assistance role. Soni was excited about this opportunity but lacked confidence for her first interview. Her SECL Employment Connector conducted an interview coaching session for Soni to prepare her for her first interview and build her confidence.
Soni was thrilled to get the role – her first job in Australia. The Employment Connector built Soni’s capacity, motivation and confidence to find a job via a ‘slow and steady’ approach.
The Community Employment Connectors program is supported by the Victorian Government.
