Newman students get work ready!

With so much opportunity here in the Pilbara, Newman students are excited to be looking towards their future and learning skills now to prepare them to enter the workforce.

To support their journeys, the Newman Chamber of Commerce and Industry are currently running workshops with students from Newman Senior High School, including those in the Graham Polly Farmer Foundation’s ‘Follow the Dream’ program, to help them learn important interview skills so they can put their best foot forward.

Tania Tucker, Business Development Manager at the Newman Chamber of Commerce and Industry said “Interview skills are an essential tool for all students in today's world of employment as there is increasing competition for job vacancies.”

While the workshops focus on ensuring students are well prepared and confident, it’s also important that they look the part too. Supporting students to look their best, the team at Monadelphous have also jumped on board and are working with the Chamber to collect clothing donations from the Newman community and in Perth so that come the time of their first interview, they’ll be looking sharp too.

For the team at Monadelphous, it’s all about ensuring that the students feel empowered and confident in their journey into the workforce for the first time can often be intimidating.

So, if you’ve got any suitable interview clothes lying around, maybe that lucky item that helped you land your dream role, that you’d like to donate, get in touch using the details below.
