Lead the Way is an intensive employment program established during 2015-2016 that aims to provide orientation to the Australian job market and job search skills, such as resume writing, job application writing and interview techniques.
The 4-week training program to assist newly arrived refugees to create employment goals and learn skills to help them meet these goals. One round of the program was held in June 2016 supporting four clients to develop the skills in job search, resume writing and interviews. Lead the Way has also recruited a pool of 16 volunteer employment mentors from a wide range of employment backgrounds to support the participants gain meaningful employment beyond the 4 week program – run 4 times a year.
