Introducing Neil…

RAAF Veteran
Success Story #1

Date

After to connecting with a Career Coach, who provided some guidance on Resumes, LinkedIn profiles, etc. and somewhat apprehensive at the prospect of entering an unfamiliar domain, I circulated my resume and started applying for jobs … whilst job offers didn’t start rolling in, I did gain some invaluable experience of the recruitment process, something completely unfamiliar to most veterans.

Having discovered Working Spirt through LinkedIn I attended a Veterans Career Transition Forum, which provided even more specific advice on how Veterans can better ‘Market’ themselves and after some enlightening guest speaker presentations, I engaged in what is the most important job seeking activity … networking!

A few conversations with employers and recruiters generated some very real interest and engagement with prospective employers started … 2 months later, during a Working Spirit networking breakfast, I found myself catching up with an organisation I’d connected with at the Transition Forum and ended up discussing an opportunity for a very exciting role as the National Aviation Services Manager for an international ‘Quality of Life Services’ provider supporting the Mining and Resources sector.

Interview, medical and reference check formalities completed, I started my new role in early June, just 3 months after reaching out to Working Spirit … without the support of Working Spirit it is extremely unlikely that I would have been fortunate enough to have secured the position I now thoroughly enjoy!

Army Success Story

Introducing Jay

I am now 3 months into my employment with Byrnecut. I have really been enjoying it. It has actually given me an opportunity to gain employment on site as a Paramedic. Which I don’t think I would have gotten if I want working for Byrnecut.

Once again thanks for the opportunity to get into the industry.
