Veteran & family member’s experiences

Read on for comments from veterans and family members who have accessed the Pathways Program. We’d love to hear from you about your experience on pathwayscomms@soldieron.org.au

Congratulations to Tom who recently secured a new role in Tasmania. 

“I contacted Soldier On who helped me secure the apprenticeship I’m just about to begin. From learning how to tailor my CV to a civilian employer to reaching out to employers who weren’t currently advertising, I was taught how to maximise my chances of securing a role that I wanted. Hard work coupled with expert guidance and support has paid off for me.” – Tom, Army veteran.
