Career Hacks for Migrants

Fast Track Your Progress…

The Problem

Migrants have always struggled in their employment & career despite their experience, passion and qualifications. 

  • Long-term unemployment.
  • Working out of their field of qualification.
  • Slow or no career progress.

These issues cause a long and often discouraging employment and career journey that takes years.

We worked with recruiters, hiring managers, employment service providers, and migrant job seekers to understand the underlying problem.

The "Why"

The main issue is that migrants focus too much on “functional fit“ and ignore the importance of “cultural fit”.

Common problems: 

  • No or little sense of direction and clarity that is based on the realities of the Australian market.
  • Mis-match expectations and career goals.
  • Very little knowledge of Australian workplace culture. 
  • Lack of effective cross-cultural communication to articulate their skills & experiences.
  • Ability to demonstrate adaptability teamwork and collaboration. 

Without structured training and relevant professional mentorship, understanding and learning these problems will take years, which will result in discouragement. 

The Solution

We developed a unique training program in collaboration with hiring managers, recruiters, employment agencies and migrant job seekers to help you learn crucial soft skills through practical & structured training.  

You will learn the unwritten rules of the Australian workplace and how to build your confidence,  discover opportunities, and get your dream job or promotion. Topics in the course: 

  • The common mistakes migrants make in their careers. 
  • How to overcome the invisible barriers.
  • What is a cultural fit, and why is it crucial for employers? 
  • Cultural intelligence and its importance.
  • Finding clarity and direction in a career based on the realities of Australia.
