Hills Resume Writing Program
Written on the 18 July 2018
In February and March George, Sophie, Kimmy and Lyndon attended a 6-week course called "Let's get that job". The course was run by The Hut Community Centre in Aldgate.
We were excited at the opportunity to support our clients to attend an adult community education course. The course was open to anyone in the community.
Participants in the course defined their career goals, wrote resumes and worked on their interview skills (including determining appropriate clothing for interviews). On completing the course, participants achieved 2 units from the Certificate 1 Foundation Skills Training Package.
Getting that first job for many of us is often difficult in today's highly competitive employment market, particularly if you're living with disability.
Community Living Australia's Adelaide Hills Regional Manager Sue Stuart, said the program highlights Community Living Australia's commitment to partnering with other organisations in the community to achieve great outcomes for clients.
"So many of our clients' goals include getting a job. It was wonderful to see the progress made, confidence built and fun had by the participants," said Sue.
Many of the participants are now being supported to make further plans on how to land their dream job.
