Jerome - Five years in the job: it's all good!
It wasn’t hard to identify administration as the right career choice for Jerome. Although he’d also done work experience in retail, administration and hospitality, administrative tasks were what he enjoyed most.
After graduating from St Marys NOVA Transition in late 2011, Jerome started an administration traineeship at Doors Plus. Five years later, he’s still there, working weekdays from 9am to 1pm. He and his employer couldn’t be happier.
Early on, Jerome’s main task was scanning, which he loved (and still does). His duties have since broadened to include doing the ledgers, filing and shredding.
Couple Jerome’s attention to detail with his diligent work ethic, and it’s not hard to see why his manager says he’s a valuable member of their team. He’s also well presented and polite.
Jerome chats to his NOVA Job Coach fortnightly. As well as discussing work, they also talk about social topics. Their conversation led to her exploring the possibility of Jerome’s trying archery at a local club – an activity he now enjoys. Not only does this round out Jerome’s life, the facts are clear: you’re more likely to find and keep a job when you’re active in your community in other ways.
