Are you looking for work, under-employed or about to leave school and you aren’t sure what to do?

Regional Development Australia Yorke and Mid North can help put you on the right track.

Career services coordinator and practitioner John Carbone and staff have helped people secure jobs in various industries including retail, hospitality, engineering, horticulture and meat processing.

Career Services is available to assist locals with job applications, career planning, upskilling or retraining.

According to John if you lost job tomorrow there would be very few job service providers who would give you assistance, “We fill that void.”

“I can help with local employment knowledge, career planning, mentoring, interview techniques and more,” John said.

While career services have supported more than 800 clients during the past four years with 400 of those gaining employment, many in the community are unaware they exist.

A success story of John’s is assisting Rhyan Baker to apply for an 18-month traineeship in parks and gardens with District Council of the Copper Coast.

Rhyan said, “I saw the advertisement for a trainee position but I was worried my resume wouldn’t be up to scratch.”

Rhyan heard about the services available through RDA and organised to meet with John.

John said, “I assisted him to put together a resume and cover letter for his application.”

After Rhyan submitted his application he was invited to an interview and John gave him some tips on presentation and Rhyan was subsequently offered the traineeship.

“He was just glowing when he got that job,” John said.
