After just over one year out of employment, 57-year-old Chester Hill local, David, was feeling unmotivated and lacking self-esteem.
David was lacking motivation to participate and wasn’t keen to study because of his low confidence in his digital literacy skills.
But Job Coach, Angela, was keen to work with David and provide tailored support that would get him back on his feet.
As a first step to get David engaged in the program, Angela suggested he participate in an activity to meet new people and be active within the community. So, she reached out to Chester Hill Neighbourhood Centre to secure him a placement. To help with David’s confidence, Angela attended the first day with him as support.
It was difficult to keep David motivated and engaged, however, after attending the first day of the activity, David now looks forward to attending.
Without moving too quickly, Angela will continue to work with David at each appointment to achieve his goals.
Angela reported that the client rarely smiled, however, when she mentioned she would share his progress story, he had a big smile on his face.
For David, the tailored support has been positive for his self-esteem. He has experienced many challenges with gaining employment and interacting with people, however, Angela has worked with him to take small steps to improve his confidence.
With the support and encouragement from Angela, David was able to perform confidently in a recent job interview and has progressed to the next stage of the job application with a positive chance of securing a job offer to start 2024 on a fresh high.
