About this Event

About Jo Pilon

I have lived and worked in western NSW until the last 2 years so I know first hand the complexities of geographical isolation and careers. I didn't know what I wanted to do until my youngest child went to school so then I studied remotely and juggled family, farm and part-time work. As my study evolved I found higher-skilled jobs within the small town I lived in but not in the profession I wanted. After I graduated I started teaching at the TAFE and from there found the job of my dreams as the Library Manager of 3 small TAFE colleges. In the next 15 years, I put my hand up for lots of different opportunities in the Libraries as well as project management and training staff in New Learning Technologies.

I decided to look for another career specifically aimed at helping other rural and regional people find a rewarding career, as I did. I did some more study and here I am, using my knowledge and transferrable skills to help rural and regional people make the right career choices for them, through career counselling, career skills coaching and training (workshops)
