Kristy was born overseas and showed to have little experience with the Australian labour market but in addition to this, Kristy felt that her previous employment providers weren’t taking into account the challenges that she was facing with her physical and mental barriers.
Kristy needed a tailored employment service provider that would understand her disability (Kristy lives with a spinal disorder and anxiety), and offer the appropriate service and support.
Kristy needed a little support to build her confidence in order to contact employers, that’s where atWork Australia came in.
Job Coach Amy worked on building Kristy’s confidence and helped to build a resume that would highlight her strengths. Employer Engagement Consultant (EEC) Sharina also facilitated mock interviews, which allowed Kristy to have a practice run and receive constructive feedback about how she conducted herself.
After Kristy’s initial assessment with atWork Australia, it didn’t take long before her interpersonal skills, industry knowledge and desire to work moved her into a good place to be considered for employment. This was enhanced through the strong bond garnered through working closely with the team at atWork Australia.
After receiving the great news of being offered a role, EEC Sharina exclaimed,
“Kristy was so excited, grateful and happy to be an employee once again.”
Sharina added, “Kristy is forever grateful and when we speak, she always mentions that she is happy, thankful and she mentioned she would like to do something for me to say thank you.”
Through her time with atWork Australia, Kristy has now completed her Responsible Service of Alcohol certificate, which aided the success of her acquiring the job.
Kristy said, “I find myself happier and confident now that my Job Coach got me a job. I’m very thankful.”
