This research considers the impact of our 'Working the Australian Way' workshops linking professionally qualified migrants with their Australian industry counterparts. Working the Australian Way aims to help new migrants overcome the barriers they face restarting their career in Australia.
The Working the Australian Way program, which also emphasises the creation of professional networks and sharing resources and experiences, has achieved success in helping professional migrants find work.
The evaluation found that three quarters of participants said the program helped them in their job search, gave them “new confidence as well as strategies and networks for finding professional work in Australia”.
73% of participants started a new job after the workshop, almost all of them within three months.
