In the heart of Karratha, a newly opened site is paving the way for job seekers to find meaningful, full-time employment. Meet Michael Stapff, one of the first job seekers to step through the doors of this empowering initiative. His journey to secure a fulfilling career exemplifies the dedication and support provided by AAC (Achieve, Advance, Connect) Employment Pathway Advisors in helping job seekers like Michael find their path to success.
Pursuit for Employment
Michael’s pursuit of employment began in mid-June, driven by a strong desire to secure a stable and rewarding job. Recognising the challenges job seekers face, AAC Employment Pathway Advisor, Erin Burmaz, extended a helping hand. Erin not only booked Michael for a forklift course at NR TAFE, scheduled from July 26 to July 28, 2023, but also provided assistance in applying for two more positions suitable to his skills and interests. This personalised guidance reflects the dedication of AAC in nurturing each individual’s unique potential.
Armed for Success
Investing in Michael’s professional growth, Erin introduced him to the Candidate Coach program—an innovative online training platform. Through Candidate Coach, Michael would enhance his interview techniques, strengthen his responses to questions, and learn valuable strategies to secure that elusive winning job. Armed with new skills and increased confidence, Michael now felt ready to face any interview with enthusiasm.
Beyond skill-building, AAC’s support for job seekers extends to practical assistance as well. Erin presented Michael with two $20.00 vouchers, thoughtfully allocated to cover his fuel costs while attending TAFE and traveling to employment interviews. This tangible support eliminated barriers that may have hindered Michael’s progress, ensuring that he remained focused on achieving his career goals.
Michael’s journey showcases the tremendous impact that dedicated guidance and support can have on job seekers’ lives. AAC’s commitment to empowering individuals like Michael is commendable, and it is evident that their efforts are driving positive change in the Karratha community.
