Helping Reka Navigate Her Return to the Workforce
A New Chapter: Rediscovering Professional Confidence

At Job for Visa, we pride ourselves on assisting clients from various backgrounds and stages of their career journeys. One such rewarding experience was helping Reka, a dedicated mother residing in New Zealand, re-enter the workforce after years of focusing on raising her children. Reka’s story is a testament to the tailored support and expertise we offer at Job for Visa.

Reka approached us with a significant concern: she was unsure how to start the process of job hunting after such a long hiatus. Our team worked closely with her to update her CV, focusing on emphasizing the transferable skills she had developed during her time as a full-time parent, such as organization, management, and communication, while also highlighting her previous professional experiences.

However, we knew that updating her CV was only part of the solution. Reka also needed to regain confidence in her ability to navigate job interviews, a common hurdle for those who have been away from the job market for an extended period. We provided comprehensive interview coaching, which equipped her with strategies to effectively discuss her career gap and underscore her readiness to return to work. These sessions were crafted to rebuild her confidence, allowing her to present herself authentically and persuasively.

The results were immensely gratifying. Reka started to receive job offers within a few weeks, a clear indication that our approach was successful. Her journey from uncertainty about her professional future to securing a job in her desired field was incredibly inspiring.

In reflecting on her experience, Reka shared a piece of advice that encapsulates her journey and serves as inspiration for others:

"For anyone facing similar challenges, remember this: It's not just about finding a job; it's about finding your place in a changing professional landscape. With determination and the right support, it's never too late to start anew."

This sentiment is at the heart of what we do at Job for Visa, where we not only assist in the mechanics of job hunting but also empower our clients to find their rightful place in their new careers. Reka's success is a powerful reminder that the right approach and support can redefine possibilities, no matter how daunting the starting point may seem.

A fun fact that what she cherishes about her life in New Zealand the most is the absence of ticks and the relief of not having to deal with allergies—small yet significant aspects that enhance her daily life!
