Caitlyn (26) has been unemployed for 8 years and experienced mental health struggles on a daily basis. She was nervous to start working and unsure of what path she should take.
She reached out to atWork Australia in Geelong where Job Coach Kay assisted her with identifying her strengths, especially what she enjoys.
Kay worked with Caitlyn to build her confidence by giving her tips and tricks that she can apply to her resume, cover letter and applications. Kay also assisted Caitlyn in paying for her work clothing and in presenting herself to potential employers.
Kay recognized Caitlyn’s enthusiasm and contacted an employer, telling them about Caitlyn and how she is an amazing individual who just needed the right role. Kay was able to secure a delivery driver role for Caitlyn.
When Kay told Caitlyn the amazing news she was: “Excited and nervous.”
Kay says: “Caitlyn was nervous at first and now is confident in herself. She has a great routine and has moved into her home a month ago with her dog.”
Kay adds: “The first time I met Caitlyn, I knew she was going to excel, despite her long-term unemployment and barriers. She was willing to pick up anything and it give it a go. I’m so proud of Caitlyn and how far she has come, her new role is that last thing to click into place for her new life and I’m thrilled to have been a part of that.”
Caitlyn says: “I would like to thank my Job Coach Kay in believing in me, helping me and giving me a chance.”
