Kerryn first came to Joblife seeking help to find employment. She has a condition called Fibromyalgia which causes her constant fatigue and joint pain. She is also involved in the Fibromyalgia community helping people understand the condition and advocating for others with the same condition.
Kerryn is incredibly personable and caring. Throughout the whole process in seeking a job, she has shown both resilience and diligence. With her determination and support from our team, she has now found work with Adjustacare.
Adjustacare match people to the appropriate equipment for them depending on their condition. They have adjustable beds and a range of mobility aids which provide medical support. Kerryn was able to use her lived experience to assist customers in choosing the right equipment for their lifestyle.
We had a chat with Kerryn about her experience with us:
Q: Can you tell me a little bit about your experience with Joblife?
Kerryn: You spoke to me as a person, you didn’t just ask me what job I wanted and then put me into a job. You helped me think outside of the box and figure out what I could to do – which landed me the job I’m in right now.
Q: What kind of problems did you encounter before you worked with us?
Kerryn: From my point of view, I had a lack of confidence. I had strong beliefs in things which I could not do. You gave me possibilities instead of roadblocks and applied for jobs I would never have even considered. I’d never even considered applying for some jobs which we did together – but you gave me the confidence to apply for these jobs with you backing me up every step of the way.
Q: What made our services a good fit for you?
Kerryn: How I looked at things, I saw the possibilities – not just the challenges and the restrictions. You got me to look at what my skillset was and possibly what I could use it for, instead of using it for what I always did (which didn’t work). Getting me to believe the lived experience I have was a valuable tool to get me into a job which I now provide vital information to customers at Adjustacare.
Q: What was the best thing you found about our service?
Kerryn: Joblife provided a personable service, you actually cared for me as a person.You assisted me in applying for jobs which I would never have considered. And throughout the whole process, you gave me the confidence to find the right type of role for me.
Q: Would you recommend our services to others? And why?
Kerryn: I do constantly, because I love you dearly and you made such a difference in my life. What you do is exactly what people need to get a job. I have the best bosses in the world and it was made possible through you guys. Thanks for helping me get work with Adjustacare and believing in me.
