Career Coaching

We’ve partnered with Multicultural Services Centre of WA (MSC) to provide FREE face-to-face career support through their Jobs & Skills Centre (JSC).

Qualified career counsellors will help you to refine your resume and applications, guide you on interview skills and tips, and offer advice on the job market and effective job search methods. If you are looking to gain experience, they will also provide you with volunteering and job search websites and resources.

These services are available from their offices at Mirrabooka and Cannington to all eligible CaLD (Culturally and Linguistically Diverse) clients, irrespective of their visa/residency or employment status.
