JOB seekers attending course put on by a Midland employment service have been given their own brand-new Tablet.
This year the theme for International Day of People with Disabilities was empowering persons with disabilities and ensuring inclusiveness and equality.
Status Employment trainer Andrew Kingham said the service provider had been running a Status Employment initiative called Ready 2 Work – a two-week course job seekers were encouraged to attend.
Some of the topics covered during the two weeks are goal setting, planning and organising, career guidance, initiative and enterprise, interview activities and getting the job.
On Monday, December 3 job seekers who had been attending the course were given a new Tablet.
“We are wanting to offer the very best service that we can to our clients with this in mind, we feel that by our job seekers having the tablet will be able to more effectively undertake their job searching and meet participation requirements plus have the added advantage of being able to apply for employment opportunities via online employment websites, also access to their personal mygov accounts, enabling them to be personally empowered,’’ he said.
