Joblink Midwest was established in 1988 and is headed up by Leon Norris and his dedicated team. The board of management comprises of representatives from local business, government and providers of education and training services which ensures a grass roots understanding of local needs is maintained.

The Midwest Jobseeker website provides a resource to assist both job-seekers to find employment and for employers to easily and cost effectively advertise job vacancies. Unlike other job sites the focus is on our region only and we also provide a range of employment related services to jobseekers and employers alike.

Jobseekers can either search for jobs without registering or if they choose to register for free they can upload their resume, receive job alerts and allow prospective employers to contact them. Jobseekers must be registered to display ads or contact job-seekers and registration is very quick and easy. Employers can also display their company logo and have their company featured. The level of information displayed is entirely up to the employer and they have control of how they would like their vacancies applied for.

CAREERS WITH CODE
Careers With Code

WHY CAREERS WITH CODE?
BECAUSE TECHNOLOGY DOESN’T STAND STILL.

Neither do careers, or the skills that we need for the jobs of the future. Just as careers like ‘knocker uppers’ (yep it was a real job) were replaced by alarm clocks, ice cutters by refrigeration, and lamp lighters by electricity, so too are we seeing a transformation in the types of jobs we’ll need and want as a future society.

As few as eight years ago there were no Android or iOS developers – because there were no smartphones! Self-driving cars were just a dream. And 3-D printing of prosthetics wasn’t even imaginable. Yet today, all those these sectors are thriving and likely to supply many of tomorrow’s jobs.

Last year, Google helped to publish the Careers with Code guide, which showed the wide variety of careers that computer science can lead to – everything from art and music to medicine and agriculture. Demand for skilled computer scientists is growing rapidly. In this year’s guide we’ve showcased more amazing and diverse Computer Science careers in fields such as sport, gaming, health, sustainability, and more.

We need technically-capable grads with a passion to solve the really tough challenges facing the world. We hope this guide will inspire your students to take up the challenge and become the change makers, innovators, and creators of the future.

Students may struggle to complete the Certificate successfully without some prior WHS knowledge.

Swimming The River
Video describing the challengers facing Indigenous communities of the East Kimberly.

The solutions to the issues portrayed in the five minute video are contained in a comprehensive policy document, called Empowered Communities and Living Change. This is a promotional and motivational video to raise the awareness of our people in the Kimberley to the issues we face.

Many of our families are caught in a cycle of poverty and despair and have been stereotyped as not having the ability to break this cycle and live a better life. All families have a key role to play in breaking this cycle for themselves and need to hear what is happening and be empowered to achieve change.

There is no issue of racism – as the message is for Aboriginal people, by Aboriginal people – only a narrow minded person who does not fully understand our strategy would call it racism. The children will learn to know better if they are taught, don’t underestimate their ability to help themselves. The real issue of racism come from people who have low expectations of Aboriginal people and who do not believe they have the ability to achieve any better than what they have. This type of thinking only perpetuating the poverty lifestyle many of our people experience which is evidenced by the high incarceration rate in the Kimberley, high levels of FASD and other key indicators. Our children can be powerful motivators to change their lives, if supported and educated.

You are entitled to your opinion, but as an Elder in the East Kimberley with an extensive and dispersed family –with issues from grief to drugs, I think I am well placed to know what is working, when you have over 60 years living here, working with young people, burying their families, then perhaps you will be well placed to know what is the wrong and right way to proceed.

The traditional culture is a positive motivating force for change but even this is being undermined by the increasing prevalence of alcohol, drugs and other negative influences even on remote communities. The enhancement of culture and other positive social norms and values are a key part of our strategy to help families break the cycle of poverty but it is also imperative that our people learn to live and survive in two worlds.

There are many programs, Aboriginal Education officers, parents groups and community programs that make the white ideals into Aboriginal understanding, - there are Aboriginal schools which are successful in working in both world, perhaps you should attend one and see just how much our children do know and learn. They are our future and we need to work with them and their families to walk in both worlds with confidence and to enjoy the same standard of living everyone else takes for granted.
