A new program was launched last month in MONOL exclusively to students who are Australian Working Holiday Aspirants. The MONOL Job Ready Program (JRP), spearheaded by the Post ESL Department’s Business English Program, aims to equip students with the necessary skills to be able to easily get a job for the Working Holiday visa in Australia.
“Students will be less intimidated in the process of finding any job in Australia, because they will be equipped with skills, knowledge, and confidence needed to get hired,” said Assistant Head for Post ESL, Cristina Dondo. “[They] can confidently and effectively communicate with anyone they encounter there,” she added.
Included in the JRP are activities relevant to the job-seeking process, which constitutes cover letter/application writing, resumé completion, and readiness for job interviews. As a bonus, the program also provides venues for students to explore different job offerings of companies floated around the web with the assistance of Business English teachers.
The first batch of students under the JRP has been undergoing continuous trainings everyday and will be doing so for four to five weeks. Indeed, as the students approach their graduation day in MONOL, they will be more prepared to enter not only Australia but also other countries.
