Good News Stories
Jamie has been attending the Gosford office for job seeker appointments since late last year. Jamie has always presented as a polite and pleasant participant who engaged well and enjoyed attending skills builder sessions. When asked what kind of work he would like to do, Jamie advised that something in retail, close to public transport, would suit him due to not having a car and license. Although these opportunities don’t come up often, staff at our Gosford office kept an eye out for retail vacancies and his request but also encouraged Jamie to explore other areas on the Central Coast. Last December, Employer Engagement Consultant Jess acquired a vacancy for Exin Light at Tuggerah – an employer who has used our employment service to find work.
Everyone, including Jamie agreed this would be a great opportunity, and it was accessible by public transport! Jamie attended the interview but unfortunately was unsuccessful.
The feedback from the employer was that Jamie interviewed very well but that there was a more suitable candidate at this time. Fast forward two months and Jamie was invited back for a new interview with Exin Light. This time, Jamie was successful in gaining the role as a process worker!
Recently Jamie attended our Gosford office to have his job plan updated and let us know how he is going. Jamie is loving his new role and said that his colleagues are extremely supportive. He mentioned that this is the best job he has ever had. Everyone is so proud of Jamie and look forward to seeing him succeed and gain confidence in his role!
After 86 months of being unemployed, Jamie’s life just started a whole new journey!!!
