Name – Kelly
Unemployed – 6 months
SLJF – June 2016
Started Work – August 2016
Position – Trainee Health & Safety Consultant
Kelly discovered SLJF by browsing the events section on Eventbrite. She had never been to a jobs fair before and was unsure what to expect, whether attending would help her find full-time employment in her specific / unique field. After experiencing it, she would recommend others to attend. She found it easier to chat in an informal setting about how her skills and career goals fit in with potential job opportunities.
“Wandering around the exhibition hall certainly reduces a lot of nervousness that often accompanies the standard interview process and it opens the door for potential opportunities that you may not have even thought of pursuing.”
Kelly chatted with the friendly team at Priority Risk’s exhibit who were enthusiastic about the varied work they do and the possible career avenues within the health and safety sector for someone with Kelly’s experience and skills. This lead to a couple of informal meetings following SLJF and a job offer.
“I am very happy in my new role and feel that it is just the beginning of a fulfilling career path.”
