Craig* was referred to Konekt’s new employer services six months after a suffering a psychological injury during his previous employment.
During his time off work, Craig described himself as being at the ‘lowest point of his life’ with a ‘complete loss of confidence, identity and any value’.
Unfortunately, over the course of his journey Craig’s life was ‘falling apart’.
Once referred to Konekt, Craig mentioned he was at first very hesitant, “I had lost all trust in people and when first speaking to Konekt, it took some time to gain that trust.”
Craig was engaged in new employer services to assist with reviewing transferable skills, assisting with resume writing, job seeking activities, applications and interview practice.
Over the next few months, Konekt worked with Craig to assist in building confidence and sourcing potential job options in his area. Craig soon managed to apply for jobs independently and source work.
When Craig commenced with his new employer, he reported “…feeling validated for the first time. It was great to get out of the house, have some routine and feel valued once again. Work eased the stressors in my personal and family life.”
“Don’t get me wrong, I am still not near 100%, though I have been able to increase my confidence over time with the assistance of Konekt.”
“These things take time and the pressures from the public and family make it so much worse.”
