New Exhibitor - WithYouWithMe

Withyouwithme Australia Military Veteren Employment Service

WithYouWithMe was co-founded by young, ambitious individuals who saw a problem with the way veterans were transitioning from the defence force and vowed to fix it. Close to 3,000 ex-defence and currently serving members are now signed up to the free program which also accepts individuals from an emergency service background.

The WYWM Training Academy provides free courses covering in-demand skills, ensuring that students graduate as the most competitive talent in the Australian job market. For those who are not sure about their civilian career match, a personality and aptitude test can quickly align you with roles across cyber security, sales, data analytics, project management and IT. The team will be available at the expo to conduct free career coaching sessions for attendees, keep an eye out for their stand.

What they do really matters! Did you know that the veteran unemployment rate is 30.2%?

Not only is the veteran unemployment rate staggeringly high, the underemployment rate amongst veterans who have found work sits at 19%, leading to low job satisfaction and lack of purpose. Why is this the case and what are the effects?

  1. Military personnel do not understand civilian HR systems and how to translate their skills, they have no existing professional networks or clear way to navigate available career choices.
  2. The Australian public do not understand veteran skills, the ADF transition budget doesn’t assist the majority and the non-profit sector has been painting a picture of veterans as ‘broken goods’.

As a result, Australians view veteran applications as a risk, preferring civilian applicants with trusted institutional qualifications. The financial burden on the Government and tax payers keeps increasing as they provide necessary health support to high numbers of ex-ADF personnel who are struggling in a broken system.

With an average of $2.5m of training by the time they have served for 7 years, it simply doesn’t make sense that the private sector is not eagerly accepting this talent pool. The system is broken and WithYouWithMe set out to fix it for the men and women that served this country.

Make sure you read their Employment Report.
