Kaleidoscope in partnership with WA Government Jobs and Skills Centres and MercyCare Jobs and Skills Centre organises workshop series targeted to the newcomer (migrant and refugee) professionals.  These workshops are designed to boost the job-readiness and employability of newcomers by providing them with tools to seek, secure and maintain professional jobs in Australia.

Job-readiness Workshops

The following topics will be covered in these workshops:

  1. Understanding Australian Workplace Culture
  2. Developing a Career Strategy
  3. CV/Resume and Selection Criteria
  4. Using LinkedIn for job-search
  5. Effective Networking skills
  6. Effective Interview skills

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 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.
