It’s never too late to change your career, and Carlo is a great example of that.

Originally a graphic designer in the Philippines, Carlo moved to Australia where he began his path in software development, leading him today as a web developer.

“I studied certificate for in IT and then I did a diploma my software development,” he told us. “From there I tried applying for jobs, but it’s really hard to break into the market without any local experience.”

Recently I found Industry Connect through Facebook, and decided to check their website, and then I found this opportunity, and then I enrolled.”

So how did Industry Connect help you become “job-ready”?

Industry Connect is really good. Before I enrolled with them, there were no offers. I always got the “unfortunately” word; unfortunately there is no position for you, unfortunately you’re not good for the role.

But now the chances of getting a job are higher. Out of all these applications there are now finally a few replies for interviews, which is really helpful.

At Industry Connect I got an idea of how everything works – I still have a lot to learn – but at least now I know I’ve already got what it takes. When I start this new job as a web developer, I already have an idea about communication and how important it is, time management, and set goals.

What I learned is just read the tips that Industry Connect posted on the Learn MEI, so that was really helpful. I would suggest to someone joining you guys to try and reach level 4 as soon as possible, because Ray is there to help as well.

I’ve already been messaging some of my friends, the ones who don’t like their jobs, and telling them they should try Industry Connect and to check the website.

I’m just pointing them in the right direction, it’s up to them now if they enrol!
