John Decided to Make a Change

Going about your life with a new attitude and increased confidence is life-changing; just ask John Cornwell.

John completed the Bounce Program last year, walking away with a FSK20113 Certificate II in Skills for Work and Vocational Pathways. His Job Active consultant at Max Employment encouraged him to join the course in October, and in just a few days, he starts work on an upcoming rail project in Brisbane with Queensland Rail.

“I am so glad I did this course. I thought it would be something interesting and a good opportunity. I had a few challenges going on in my life and I found joy in the classroom, something to look forward to each day.

I really didn’t think someone like me would come so far and now I am so happy with myself. I was so inspired by the Bounce course. It meant a lot to me that [trainer] Malise looked out for me. After the course, I felt like I could keep pushing and pushing and pushing until I got a job. And then I did! I am so overwhelmed with happiness.”

And it doesn’t stop there. John is investing in his future and supporting his family and friends where he can – all while continuing to paint, write music and create jewellery (his favourite ways to relax).

John, hats off to you, keep going on your journey!
