How it works
The program is a hybrid of coaching and modules designed to prepare participants to become job ready.
Step 1 – Develop Objectives and Plan
After signing up to JobClub, you will interview with your Job Coach to understand Program Objectives, know your job goals and return to work strategy. Your job coach will outline the roles and responsibilities of both the facilitator and yourself.
You will then move on to modules and coaching.
Step 2 – Participate in Modules and Coaching
5 module-based coaching sessions that model best practice job seeking behaviours, up to 2 hours each (available in e-learning or face-to-face):
- Resume and Cover Letter development
- Selection Criteria
- Job Applications, Networking and Canvassing
- Injury, Illness and Disability Disclosure
- Interview Skills
Step 3 – Program Closure and Goal Review
At the completion of the program, you will engage in a wrap up meeting with your Job Coach to discuss outcomes against objectives. You'll also be asked to complete two evaluation tools.
Once the review is completed, your job plan will be updated to consider the next steps to achieve positive employment outcomes.
