Navigating a pathway to employment can be difficult for anyone. It is especially difficult for those, such as newly arrived refugees, unfamiliar with the Australian job market culture. They often lack job readiness to find employment opportunities and to sell their skills to potential employers.
Information sessions will be offered to newly arrived refugees on the fundamentals of business practices in Australia with the aim of assisting those ready for employment to obtain jobs. The sessions will focus on CV preparation, how to be job ready, how to contact organisations, and a range of basic business practices (reading invoices, terminology, etiquette and norms, rates of pay). The focus will be on skills for blue collar workers.
