Had to share...Andrew got a job as a "Youth Support Worker" for "Families SA" and starts on 27th April. They'll put him through his certificate III and IV, which is fantastic as we couldn't have afforded to do this ourselves.
Me..I had an interview yesterday ..and got a phone call today ..got the job. It's permanent but only 20 hours a week but he said at the interview as it's a new post he started it off at 20 but reckon's it'll likely go fulltime. WOOOOT!...chuffed. It's "marketing / PA / Admin" for a technical writing / intranet development company in the city. Already I've to go in fulltime Friday and all the folllowing week fulltime.
I'm soooooooo chuffed..can't believe the week we've had. Can't wait to get started though. It's still taking in what I used to do... as love graphic design and this will still be a large part of the remit.
Took us both 4 months, so it wasn't quick. Writing covering letters and resumes quite frankly was getting very wearing, they can take days to do properly...so all I can say is it's worth it and hang in there.
Best of luck to everyone who's still searching.
