Good News from atWork Australia

Emilie, 35 has Bipolar Affective Disorder and found it difficult to find a role she loved and that also supported her mental health.

Emilie was unemployed for one year when she connected with atWork Australia’s Disability Employment Services in Ballarat, VIC.

Emilie struggled to get work despite having relevant experience and ample qualifications until she met with Job Coach, Chanel.

Emilie came from a very scientific background, previously working in research and agriculture. Her resume reflected these roles and did not accurately portray Emilie’s suitability for a role in a way that was easily digestible by a recruiter or employer.

Chanel assisted with simplifying, restructuring, and emphasising key skills in Emilie’s resume that would make her suitable for the admin roles that she was seeking.

The pair also worked on Emilie’s cover letter to further link requirements of admin roles, with her experience in science-related disciplines.

Chanel supported Emilie whilst she applied for work, by answering any questions that she had; ensuring that she always felt confident.

Very shortly after they refreshed her application, she was invited to three different interviews and was successful with all of them. This allowed her to pick which role she desired most.

Emilie was relieved to have found an employer that she felt supported by, and that allowed her to further her skills.

She landed a job at the perfect time, as she was in the process of moving homes and needing a job to obtain a lease.

Emilie said:

“I received extremely dedicated and empathetic help and support with my job search from atWork Australia. Prior to signing up with Chanel, I had no job interviews. His exceptional skills helped with revamping my resume and cover letter, ultimately leading me to land a job. Chanel was very engaging and amiable throughout our interactions which made the whole process a lot more enjoyable”

Emilie commenced her employment journey with atWork Australia on the 21st of July and accepted employment on the 30th of August. Chanel was overjoyed with this turnaround he was able to provide Emilie with.
