Launceston Speed Interviewing event propels John’s new career

John*, a former owner-operator of a local business, joined CVGT Employment’s Disability Employment Service in March 2022 to find employment in management, finance, or administration. He attended CVGT Employment’s Launceston Speed Interviewing event, where he spoke to nearly 40 employers and gained insight into new career opportunities.

The Launceston Speed Interviewing event, hosted by CVGT Employment Launceston, is a unique occasion for employers to rapidly interview candidates with a range of skill sets to find the perfect match for their business.

During one of John’s three-minute employer interviews, he left a lasting impression with a large public transport provider – he was the perfect match for a bus driver position.

Being a bus driver was not a job he had thought of applying for but after meeting the employer and learning about the role, he agreed to take the leap.

John’s speed interview with the public transport service led to him being offered a bus driver position, a job he wouldn’t have thought of taking up if it weren’t for the event.

John was offered a full-time job with the company, which is an incredible outcome for both him and the employer.

CVGT Employment’s staff, especially John’s consultant Maryanne Singline, supported him throughout his journey with valuable guidance and motivation. John credits his success to Maryanne’s unwavering assistance and expressed his gratitude for the mentoring and support she provided.

“I wouldn’t be where I am today without the excellent service of CVGT Employment,” John says.

John’s story highlights the importance of dedicated service, out-of-the-box thinking, and attending unique events like Launceston Speed Interviewing to maximize opportunities.

Our speed interviewing event benefits employers by saving time and money, filling vacancies faster with suitable candidates, and reaching potential candidates who wouldn’t typically apply.

Overall, the Launceston Speed Interviewing event promises to be a fantastic opportunity for both employers and job seekers.
