One of our long standing clients, Paolo Caporro, first attended an English conversation class based at Strathfield Community Centre in 2013.
When Paolo arrived in Australia, he had 30 years truck driving experience under his belt. But employers continually rejected him because of his age and language barrier. Despite numerous set-backs and unsuccessful job interviews, Paolo pursued his passion to secure employment as a truck driver, demonstrating sheer resilience and commitment to achieve his goal.
Paolo has now successfully completed the SkillME Certificate III in Driving Operations and is currently engaged in gainful employment as a truck driver for transportation of warehouse materials and freight.
He is also currently in the process of securing employment as a Government Bus Operator. This is one of Metro Assist’s true highlights and success stories. Congratulations Paolo!
