The Kaleidoscope job readiness workshop series is targeted at skilled newcomer (migrant and refugee) professionals.  These workshops are designed to boost newcomers’ job-readiness and employability by providing tools to seek, secure and maintain professional jobs in Australia.

The following topics are covered in these workshops:

  1. Effective networking skills
  2. Developing a career strategy
  3. Australian workplace culture/contracts
  4. Using LinkedIn for job-search
  5. Resume writing
  6. Cover letter writing
  7. Interview skills
  8. Wellness, family session.

Here is what past attendees are saying about the JRW sessions:

“I learned how to adapt my resume to the format preferred by Australian employers and to tailor it to the selection criteria advertised in the positions. This workshop was incredibly empowering and gave me a sense of comradery among other migrants experiencing similar struggles in their professional endeavors.” Vani

Resourceful; I could have done my past interviews better had I completed this session earlier.” Dorji Yangka

The information was very valuable, I have worked in Australian work environment and sometimes for me is difficult to understand why things are done in “X” way.   It is important to understand and follow the rules in the workplace and also have open mind for everything, just in that way I will be able to feel more comfortable about this.” Diana Mendez.

These sessions are generally scheduled to start at 9.00 am and conclude at 2.30 pm on all workshop days so parents with school-going children can also attend. However, some series may be scheduled at an alternate time for operational reasons.

Participants are required to attend all days of the workshop series to fulfil the Kaleidoscope Mentoring Program’s (KMP) mandatory eligibility criteria of being job-ready to become a KMP mentee.

The details of all our job-readiness workshop series will be posted here and on our Facebook and LinkedIn channels for wider circulation.
