Description

Parramatta TAFE Greater Western Sydney, with City of Parramatta Council, is offering the Skilled Migrants Job Seeker Workshop to Parramatta's diverse and skilled migrant communities.

This workshop is ideal for new migrants seeking to understand the Australian job market, preparing for the application and interview process, and putting their skills to use in finding a job.


The Skilled Migrants Job Seeker Workshop will deliver practical advice to attendees, giving them the tools needed to complete their resumes and prepare for interviews.

Sessions include:

- The Job Market in Australia - Students will get a brief discussion on the Australian job market including skill shortage areas and adjusting to the Australian workplace.

- Completing Resumes - Students will be provided with a resume template and worksheet to assist them in creating a clear, concise resume appropriate for the Australian workplace.

- How to Apply for Jobs - This session will advise students how to write a clear and concise cover letter and adjust resumes accordingly, and will look at interview questions in relation to the advertisement or position description.

- Interview Skills - This session provides an understanding of the cultural differences in an Australian/Western society and specifically, the workplace. This will include communication styles seen as appropriate for success in a western culture. This includes passive, aggressive and assertive communication and the use of initiative, and when these are appropriate depending on the manager’s style.
