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

Very good session and gives you a great idea about job searches and creating networking.” Rabar Affrin

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 undersdant 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.

It was such a productive session, it helped me to reflect on the process to develop my career strategy parting from my values.” Ana Marin.


These sessions are generally scheduled to start at 9:30 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.

Attendance at all the workshops of a series will also help the newcomers fulfill 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.
