It’s amazing what can be achieved with a positive attitude, determination and a little bit of support from the Jobfind team.


Last week  Jobfind Regional Employment Relationship manager Eddie Goncalves met a new job seeker, The Ngyuen.


Eddie recalled Mr Ngyuen had been let go from his job due to a down turn in trade which resulted in Mr Ngyuen being concerned that he wouldn’t get another job because of his age.


“Mr Ngyuen came in really flat, but still hungry for work. I had a few different employment opportunities that suited Mr Ngyuen skill set, so after a few phone calls then an interview, Mr Ngyuen was offered a job and started work on the following Monday.”


“We also assisted him with the purchase of a new pair of boots and some work pants to ensure he was completely prepared to start his new role.”


Eddie added: “He was so happy, I hadn’t seen such a big smile from a participant ever!


His smile was priceless and really made the whole office light up.“


Mr Ngyuen said: “I’m nearly 60 and a number of people said I wouldn’t get a job, but that’s not true, thanks to the support of Jobfind.”


These type of outcomes are what the Jobfind team live for, so we are proud to announce Mr The Ngyuen as the Jobfind Job seeker of the week.

Wollongong Jobseeker of the week – Alafita Faletoese

August 11th, 2017

Alafita Faletoese, a registered nurse, met with her Employment Consultant Christina Armstrong 6 weeks ago. She stated she previously had a severe case of tendonitis in her wrist which has now healed and that she had not worked for over 18 months. She presented with anxiety issues, negative behaviour and low self-esteem about getting back into the workforce.


By building up her self-esteem and with support from her consultant during weekly appointments, and being part of our JOBFIND Club, her consultant was able help Alafita realise she has a rewarding career ahead of her. This helped Alafita to present herself with a more positive attitude and enthusiasm during her interviews with employers. As a result, Alafita now has a contract with Griffith Hospital as a registered nurse in Griffith, NSW!


We have to remember when people have been out of the workforce and have had an injury, it can be a scary thing to go back into the workforce. Alafita started believing in herself and this changed her life.


We as consultants can turn this around with strong support and encouragement by helping participants to grow their self-belief.
