Beaudon has found meaningful work with great prospects after seeking support from atWork Australia and Job Coach, Melanie.
Beaudon had previously completed several education certificates in a variety of fields but had been finding it difficult to obtain ongoing employment due to living with a mental health condition.
He had trained in hospitality, fitness and individual support services and found that hospitality was really where he wanted to concentrate his career.
“Beaudon had worked diligently on his mental health throughout the year to increase his chances of employment,” Melanie says.
Melanie immediately connected with Beaudon and they worked together on interview preparations and practice, and areas where Beaudon knew he could further improve his chances of finding work.
Melanie found temporary work for Beaudon at a local café where he could re-engage with people to ease him back into employment.
Beaudon was excited to be employed as a kitchen hand. He also knew he wanted to stay in the hospitality industry so from day one, he set about learning everything he could about the day-to-day operations of the kitchen.
“Beaudon dealt mostly with mental health, however, he worked very hard to overcome many things to find employment,” says Melanie.
Beaudon is very appreciative of all the support and assistance he received from Melanie, and the team at atWork Australia. He loves his new role and career and looks forward to continuing in the hospitality industry.
“Give a man the right tools and he can move a mountain” Beaudon says.
Beaudon is hopeful the temporary role at the café will soon become permanent and he knows his future in hospitality is looking incredibly bright.
