Hired within Days after an Interview

Shari McEwin came to advisor Heather Scott, Perth Career Counselling, looking for career exploration towards a "helping" field. Discussed interests, goals, everything pointed to caring for others.

Shari went to Anne Hathaway Residence for an info meeting, to explore options; then she was interviewed and hired within days. She has gone from part time to full time within a month. As a result she acquired more self confidence; moreover, her new employer will assist Shari in her training.

Later she said that she hadn’t realized she could apply to jobs which are not posted, and how important asking questions are during the exploration stage.
