Have you been applying for job after job and hearing nothing back?
Are you underemployed and tired of asking your boss for more hours?
Perhaps you’ve always loved the idea of working in a particular job but just don’t know where to start?
Are your kids all at school next year and it’s time to think about your future?
Or perhaps your children have finished school and they need some advice about what to do next?
Maybe you just need a bit of help to dust off your old paper resume and apply for jobs in the new online world we are living in.
If you said ‘yes’ to any of these questions, then the Gordon Skills and Jobs Centre can help.
Skills and Jobs Centres provide free, confidential, independent help and advice about careers and training options for all Victorians. They help unemployed or retrenched people, women returning to work, recent migrants and refugees, apprentices and trainees – in short, anyone who is interested in talking about their future. They also have computers and free internet available.
The Gordon Skills and Jobs Centre is also home to Reconnect, a program funded by the Department of Education and Training Victoria.
Reconnect is a specialist program that works one-on-one with eligible participants. Its key objective is to support participants to identify and achieve their work and learning goals by helping to break down any barriers in their day-to-day life.
The program is available to anyone in the Greater Geelong region aged between 17 and 64 years of age who is not engaged in any training, education or employment for a period of six months or longer. It is also for people who have significant barriers in accessing and staying engaged in training, education and employment.
