“I got help from Lucy to update my resume. We wrote a few different resumes which highlighted my skills and work experience.  I submitted this resume to Huon Valley Works.  Within a couple of days, I was contacted by Huon Valley Works to apply for a job” Work Ready participant

Work Ready Case Study

“I came in to GeCo to see Huon Valley Works staff about job opportunities.  They weren’t sure what would suit me but I then got help from Lucy to update my resume.

We wrote a few different resumes which highlighted my skills and work experience.  I submitted this resume to Huon Valley Works.  Within a couple of days, I was contacted by Huon Valley Works to apply for a job as the ‘Get Picking’ supervisor.

I had an interview, got the job, and have been working as supervisor of the project since late 2018. 

Lucy was informative about what format to use for resumes, and because of my varied work history, it needed some major streamlining.  We talked in depth about the kinds of work I am good at and my work history and it helped strengthen my approach to looking for work.”
