Career counselling

Our career advisors can help you identify your career goals in line with your skills, strengths and interests. We help you develop a career plan and expand your understanding of the industry you wish to work in. 

Skills assessment and training advice

To be successful in any career, you need to have the right skills and qualifications. Through our skills assessment process, we can help you:
  • Identify and clarify your existing skills
  • Determine any new skills you may require
  • Find the right training courses and study pathways
  • Refer you to suitable course providers

One-on-one consultations

Through our one-on-one consultations, we give you the personalised support you need while searching for jobs. Following the latest Victorian Government Coronavirus (COVID-19) advice, consultations are currently offered by phone or online only.

Funding applications

We can help you apply for an exemption on the upskilling rule for Victoria Government Funding. If eligible, you could receive government-subsidised training (regardless of your existing qualifications).

Free workshops

We offer a series of free workshops to give you an edge in the job market. Following the latest Victorian Government Coronavirus (COVID-19) advice, workshops are currently offered online only. These include:
Workshop 1: The standout applicant
 How well does your resume attract attention in a competitive environment? In this workshop, you’ll learn how to identify and present your strengths to prospective employers.
Workshop 2: Resume preparation
 If you’re unsure how to write an effective cover letter and resume, this workshop is your chance to learn. The workshop also covers how to answer key selection criteria.
Workshop 3: The hidden job market
 Many job vacancies are never advertised. This workshop will help you learn how to look beyond the traditional job market to find these hidden opportunities.
Workshop 4: Developing interview skills
 In this workshop, you'll learn about different interview types and what interviewers look for in attendees. You’ll even get the chance to put your new skills into practice.

Work experience

Finding a job is hard – especially without any real-world experience. But how can you get experience if you don't have a job? To gain work experience, we can help you find and apply for:
  • Practical placements
  • Volunteer work
  • Internships
  • Professional employment programs
