I had a hard time finding work earlier this year but I stuck with it and found something. Just dont be picky, if you need the money find a crap job, then when you find a better one, just quit. Also apply for a few at a time, you can always turn one down for another.

I'm unemployed, and it's nearly impossible to find work down here! There's nothing!

Instead of just moaning about the job market... ask yourselves just one question

"What are you doing for yourself to make yourself more employable ?"

I'm without work atm... but I choose to be that way so I can study fulltime to gain a Diploma. When I've finished study I will have more skills than I have at present which will make me more employable to future employees. I'll be skilled enough to work as a contractor for anyone in the world that speaks english and needs IT personell....and won't have to worry about being tied to employers...this is my new personal workplace reform. :D

When I've finished I'll more than payback any taxes that have supported me while I've been out of work...by being in a higher paying job and tax bracket than what I will ever be if I dont study.

The biggest mistake anyone can make in their younger years is to not have their own direction or destiny to follow. It will turn around and bite them in the bum when they are older.

If you're all now just seaching for whatever employer will take you in and train you to do a job, then you will always be on the bottom of the heap and fighting for work entitlements. The way the gov has made things now with job contracts, people wont be able to fight for much without a good skills base.

It's sad to see on the news factories closing down and people suddenly being retrenched... people that have slaved their whole lives in one job suddenly unemployed with only minor skills for one type of job that any trained monkey could do. Look at what happened to Queensland with the banana's... now there's lot's of banana packers with nothing to pack.

If you get yourselves trained in some major field that will always be there and always in demand for people to do the work, then you'll always be employable as soon as you become unemployed.

Bit of a rant but just my 2c....

sixshooter, you seem very confident that just a diploma will get you a high paying job. No offence, but if you want high paying, you really need uni. Tafe only teaches you enough of the basics to get by. Why didnt you jst do something like A+ with MSCE? Loads of people looking for MSCE's and the pay is always good.
Sorry bud, not trying to get you down, its great to see people re-educating themselves, just saying what i know from working in this area.

I am actually doing Bach. Of commerce next year.

Anyways, i have never had this problem, i won't leave a job until i have a new one. I would never ever place myself into a job that i didn't like, as in the end you not only wasted your own time, but you waste the employers time also, which is a big no no.

Same here Minux - I've had (crappy) jobs since I was 16, leaving one as a better offer came up. And I'm at uni - who knows what I'll do when I finish up with that..
