SHOC Job Preparation

Kristian, SHOC Job Preparation Advocate

I’m Kristian and I am the Welfare and Employment advocate here at SHOC. My job is to help you develop skills to help you with finding part time work while you study.

Knowing where to look for casual jobs and writing resumes and cover letters can be confusing, frustrating and time-consuming, especially when you also have Uni to worry about. I understand that finding work while you study is a necessity for many students and I’m here to help.

Teach you how to write a cover letter and resume

Cover letters and resumes are important tools when seeking work. They can be time consuming to create and many people are unsure of what information to include and how to sell themselves. I can give you pointers on how to write a resume with the right information that will make you stand out.

Show you where you can look to find jobs

Confused about the best ways to look for jobs? Don’t know whether to apply online or drop your resume into a business? Not sure what kind of jobs will fit in with your lifestyle? I can help you figure out the best places to look for jobs, the best ways to apply for jobs, and give you an understanding about what type of part time or casual job will fit in with your studies and life.

Teach you what to do in a job interview

Many people get anxious before job interviews. It’s hard to know what you should and shouldn’t say, what you might expect to be asked, and how you can prepare. I can teach you ways to make a good impression when interviewing with potential employers.

Review your scholarship application

Just like job applications I can go through your scholarship applications and give you advice and feedback on how it is written and if you are on the right track to writing a good application.
