TIPS TO GET BACK INTO THE WORKFORCE
Getting your foot in the door for your first job, or back in the door in some cases, can be tough.
But staff at the Harvey Community Resource Centre are hoping to make it a little easier for young people or those returning to employment by giving them a few pointers.
Writing a resume and a cover letter will be the focus of two free courses held at the centre on Thursday, as part of a series of Ready for Work workshops.
Run by former Donnybrook CRC manager Victoria Coyne, the courses are aimed at giving young job seekers an edge over the competition, and giving those returning to employment a competitive boost.
Harvey CRC manager TraceyAnn Davis said Mrs Coyne provided down-to-earth information to job seekers, such as creating a “clothing library” and giving pointers on how to interview well.
“We’ve been very lucky to find her,” Mrs Davis said.
“Our next workshop on will be on how to respond to selection criteria and soon we will be doing one-on-one job interviews, which will include doing a mock-interview.”
