Starting a career can be challenging. Inexperience can only be overcome by experience. But how does one gain credible work experience if no one will hire you without experience? …the infamous ‘rock and a hard place’ scenario.
Like other young Australians, Eric faced this situation before he was onboarded to our apprenticeship program. Originally placed for 10 months with a cabinet manufacturer in Armadale, an unfortunate down turn in the market rendered his apprenticeship redundant. However, in the face of difficult circumstances, Eric persevered and his persistence paid off. He was selected for an apprenticeship at Fremantle Furniture Factory!
Based on his strong work assessment from his original apprenticeship, Eric stood out from a highly competitive field of candidates, winning the placement over 32 other applicants.
Following Eric’s placement at Fremantle Furniture Factory Workshop Manager, Daniel Guettinger provided feedback to further affirm the young apprentice’s efforts while in the role. Feedback of Eric’s performance and attitude, willingness to assist, and Daniel’s long term perspective of Eric’s potential were strong influencing factors in our final decision making, selecting him as ChoiceOne’s Apprentice of the Year!
Now a 2nd Year Apprentice Cabinet Maker (Certificate III in Cabinet Making), Eric continues his education at Thornlie South Metropolitan TAFE, while actively supporting Fremantle Furniture Factory’s business.
“My apprenticeship through ChoiceOne with Fremantle Furniture Factory has opened up a unique career opportunity allowing me to learn the skills and disciplines involved in the manufacture and installation of high end cabinetry and joinery. This has been an ambition of mine since Year 8 at school.” Eric
