In this economy, it’s extremely difficult to find steady or secure jobs in Australia. However, that does not mean you have to be officially unemployed, or worse, end up working at a fast food restaurant for the rest of your life. All hope is not lost. Try one of the below suggestions to find yourself proper, fulltime employment:
Search OnlineObviously, the first thing you would be doing right out of college will be searching online for forklift driver hire in Sydney construction and so on. That’s a good start. However, ask your mates at uni about local sites for job seekers, as these would be the best to look for jobs in your local area. Also, local job sites are where latest job openings would be advertised first. Consult Your University’s Career Counselling Services
In case you cannot get hired by looking for construction employment agencies Sydney, where the competition would be particularly tough, go to your Uni’s career counselling department an ask for help. You will be assigned a guidance counsellor who will provide you with resources for aspiring employees. Depending on your uni, guidance counsellors might be able to recommend you to prospective employers. More importantly, they will be able to help you polish your resume, train you for job interview and increase your overall appeal as a good hire.
Attend Job FairsDon’t forget to attend the job fairs routinely held at your university and nearby areas. This is where prospective employers come in search of unique talent. Even if you are not particularly unique, you will get a good idea about who’s hiring, what their expectations are and how to apply. Also, this is a networking opportunity to give your resume or business card to corporate and other head hunters. You will be able to find much more lucrative job opportunities at campus fairs than through online searches for labour hire Sydney.
Do Free Work for References Most students forget to beef up their resumes with internships and other unsexy unpaid work. Most end up working at the local cafeteria for pay, which in the end doesn’t amount to much unless your prospective employer is another cafeteria. Therefore, don’t overrule doing free, unpaid or temporary work in return for glowing references and recommendation work. Even more than your GPA, good references matter for prospective employers. Also, don’t forget to ask alumni about the employers most likely to hire from your university. They might even be able to personally direct you to important contacts. Don’t forget to post your resume online were head hunters and employers can easy access it.
