What is the Career Supports Program?
Our courses are designed not only to provide you with job-relevant skills, but also to launch you into a creative, fulfilling, and well paid career once you graduate. The Career Support Program is aimed at supporting, advising and empowering you to achieve the results you’re looking for once you complete your Transform course.
Available to all Transform students, the program provides access to complimentary workshops and our dedicated team, and boasts a great success rate. To date, 9 out of 10 of those who have actively participated in the program have secured jobs in related fields soon after graduating.
A collaborative process that involves a commitment from Academy Xi to help you achieve your career goals, you’ll work on:
- Your elevator pitch
- Improving your soft skills
- Practicing interview techniques
- Developing your CV
- Leveraging your LinkedIn profile
- Building and finding opportunities through your network
How does the Career Support Program work?
During your Transform course, you will have access to our online Career Toolkit, which will support you on your journey to become job-ready, equipping you with the tools required to succeed in the market. Topics covered include resume and cover letter writing, how to build your network and personal brand, as well as access to our Career Coaches. All of this combined helps to ensure you put your best foot forward after graduation.
Once you’ve completed the course, you’ll work directly with one of our Career Coaches, through regular 1:1 meetings, to:
- Come up with a plan for your job search to help you successfully apply for the right roles
- Prepare you for everything from mock interviews to contract negotiations
- Connect you to community networks and share job opportunities
- Facilitate opportunities such as work experience or volunteering on short-term contracts

Current Professional Background: Service Designer at AGL
Previous Professional Background: Hotel Management
The practical up-to-the-minute advice from Dan and the Outcome Program team was absolutely outstanding. Being able to practice for mock interviews and talk through how to best approach my non-linear career journey, and compose my own narrative for the job market, was critical to land my new role shortly afterwards. I am fairly self-motivated in my ways of being, and I appreciated that I could engage them as much or as little as I needed without being pressured to do so.
