TaskForce was selected to have a prominent stand at the Federal and State Government sponsored South-East Melbourne Jobs Fair, which incorporated other Jobs Victoria Employment Services (JVES) providers, training organisations and employers from different industries.
The event was held at Sandown Park on Wednesday 18 May 2022, and over 800 jobseekers attended.
Our JVES Manager Silvia and Industry Engagement Broker Cheryl were busy chatting to many jobseekers interested to register with TaskForce. Cheryl invited an employer along to the event and was able to connect a jobseeker to him. An interview took place then and there with a successful outcome. The jobseeker registered with TaskForce, was offered a job on the spot, and has since started work. An awesome achievement.
In total, 35 new enquiries were taken with most of those jobseekers now fully registered in the TaskForce JVES program. The day was hugely successful.
TaskForce is an accredited JVES provider and delivers this service through two programs – My Way and AfriCareers – providing intensive, personalised assistance to help jobseekers enhance their employability skills, connect with employers and overcome barriers to entering the job market.
