Mr Jeff Fullelove is the CareerLink Program Coordinator, joining CareerLink in 2004. He is an avid fan of Vocational Education and Training and Workplace Learning programs. A background in the Job Network and Defence has helped to shape this outlook on career development and education.
Five years managing Job Network agencies and working with long term unemployed highlighted the need for prospective job seekers to “try before they commit.” Networking and engaging with employers help to determine if that field of employment is what students want to pursue as a career. The experience enables students to identify the employment prospects in that industry and to determine where the most relevant further education and training is conducted. In 2008 he was awarded a Graduate Certificate of Career Development from Edith Cowan University. He has recently completed a Masters of Transformational Development.
Jeff served with the Royal Australian Air Force for 47 years (23 years full time and 24 years as a Reservist). He is actively involved with The Salvation Army Church in Heathridge and community activities including the Joondalup Christmas Lunch. He is heavily involved in supporting the education of children in Myanmar through the charity he leads “Pink Jade Educational Fund” and is a national board member of “Sustain Projects Myanmar” an international NGO.
