Employability skills for migrants

Back to Services

If you have recently come to live in Australia, finding a job that suits your skills and qualifications can be challenging.

You may be discouraged and even thinking about giving up. DON’T!

Our Reach Your Potential Employability Program for migrants from skilled backgrounds has achieved outstanding results.

The program is free and is designed and run by professional business volunteers.

Through our weekly workshops and one-on-one coaching, we will build your confidence and give you the techniques to apply for a job aligned to your profession.

Over seven weekly sessions, face to face or via Zoom, we will help you to:

  • Understand the Australian workplace
  • Identify your strengths
  • Set your career goals
  • Write an effective resume
  • Prepare a compelling cover letter
  • Compile an online application
  • Prepare for and practise interviews

This podcast introduces the structured job application approach and tools talked about in our program.

Whether you are participating in our workshops, are a past graduate looking for a refresher, or a skilled migrant who has found us here, we hope you will find some useful information you can apply in your own job search journey.
