Job Seeker Mentoring – Group Sessions

The six key distinctions of Life Coaching Melbourne’s unique Job Seeker Mentoring Program:

  1. It is delivered by qualified and dedicated Life Coaches who have Job Services and/or Disability Services backgrounds that understand the issues and challenges that both job seekers and community service providers face on a daily bases.
  2. We regularly liaise with the community service provider to help ensure each individual participant is well supported and progressing confidently through each step of the program to ensure every stakeholder is satisfied with the progress and outcomes. Feedback is always welcome and the program can be adjusted whenever necessary.
  3. We establish clear goals for the group as a team, and also for each participant, and use our life coaching skills to help
    motivate and inspire them to achieve those goals.
  4. We have an outstanding and trusting relationship with a growing network of employers in many areas of Melbourne.
  5. We are compassionate and understanding, non-judgmental coaches with a mission to help the most disadvantaged job seekers find suitable and sustainable employment.
  6. This program is tailored to suit not only the budget and aims of the community service provider, but also the backgrounds, personality and desired aims of the participants. Personal growth and awareness is a garanteed bonus outcome for each of them.

1-on-1 Job Seeker Mentoring

Our dedicated coaches can also work 1:1 with your clients/job seekers as they learn to cold call and negotiate with pre-selected employers to arrange an interview and consequent job placement or work experience opportunity. Our coaches work tirelessly and, if permitted, can take clients/job seekers out to meet employers wherever possible. This service is an ideal inclusion to any job seeker program, should the need arise.

They can also sit in on interviews, if deemed appropriate at the time. There is also a further option of introducing the Case Managers and/or Social Workers to the employers for future post-placement support and ongoing relationship development.

On-going support can be provided for the participants can be included through a combination of:

  • Face to face
