Overcoming Barriers and Achieving Success

We are thrilled to share the incredible success story of Jaccob, one of our exceptional First Nations job seekers, who has achieved remarkable milestones in his life with the support of Workskil Australia.

17/01/23

When Jaccob first approached us as a Workforce Australia - Transition to Work customer, he possessed a strong desire to work, but he also faced several personal barriers that needed to be addressed. Undeterred, our dedicated team at Workskil Australia took him under their wings and embarked on a journey with Jaccob to unlock his true potential.

Throughout the process, Jaccob actively participated in our weekly job club sessions, where he received personalised guidance and support. Our team recognised the significance of a well-crafted resume and tailored cover letters in the job-seeking process. As a result, we worked closely with Jaccob, assisting him in updating his resume, honing his interview skills, and perfecting the art of writing tailored cover letters.

However, the journey didn't end there. We understood that to create better opportunities for Jaccob, we needed to address practical barriers that might hinder his progress. With this in mind, we took an extra step by providing financial assistance for him to obtain a forklift licence and driving lessons. These crucial steps opened new doors for Jaccob and paved the way for him to obtain his provisional driver's licence.

Jaccob's commitment, resilience, and determination throughout the ten-month journey were truly inspiring. With unwavering support from our Youth Employment Brokers, particularly Sarah, Jaccob persisted through challenges, and his dedication shone through, leading to the ultimate triumph of securing a position through Adecco.

Sarah, reflecting on Jaccob's remarkable progress, expressed, "The resilience and determination Jaccob has demonstrated over the last 10 months is inspiring; it has been a privilege to have been part of his journey."

We, at Workskil Australia, could not be prouder of Jaccob's accomplishments and the perseverance he displayed in achieving his goals. By overcoming personal barriers and embracing the guidance provided, he not only secured a job but also recently celebrated the significant milestone of purchasing his first car. Jaccob's success exemplifies the transformative power of dedication, support, and hard work.

A heartfelt congratulations go out to Jaccob for his achievements, and we extend our sincere appreciation to the entire Workskil Australia support team who played a vital role in helping him realise his potential. Our commitment to empowering individuals like Jaccob remains unwavering, and we are dedicated to continuing our efforts to make a positive impact on the lives of job seekers within the community and beyond.

Jaccob's success story serves as a beacon of hope for others facing similar challenges. If you or someone you know is looking to overcome obstacles and achieve career success, don't hesitate to connect with Workskil Australia. Together, we can unlock the potential within and forge a path towards a brighter future.

Congratulations, Jaccob, on your incredible achievements! Your journey inspires us all.
