Can you help?
My wife and I arrived in Adelaide last Friday and my wife is having trouble finding work. Does anyone know of any good agencies or opportunities that are around at the moment?
She is currently looking to work in either an administration or retail sales environment.
Any help greatly appreciated!!!:)
Depending on what area you are moving to Wodstock Winery in Mclaren Flat were advertising for a receptionist? I wouldn't think it would be too hard to find a job www.careerone.com.au is a good site which you can register on line for new jobs - good luck
Thanks Wendy will pass the tip on.
Give it time, you havent been here a week yet! Something will come up

I wouldn't worry, we have been here for 6 weeks now, and all 3 of us still havent found jobs.
We did think it would have been easier, but i'm sure something will come up soon.
I went to centrelink to get a ''job seekers number'' and that entitled me to go through an agency called ''Maxima''... which I went and had an interview, and the lady set me up on the internet site, and they send me job offers on what i asked for.
Sarah, I cant believe you havent found a job hairdressing yet! Are you looking for full or part time? In my expirience most jobs are pt time, when they wnat you type things, is this the case for you?

Try not to worry. This is what I found the hardest when we arrived 10 months ago-the fact that my hubby came out to a job helped, but I thought I would find a job quickly and it took me a good 2 months, so don't panic-something will come along in the end, it might not bo the perfect job first time, but just keep your eyes open x:)
If Austrlai has taught me anything it the age old saying:
"you work to live you don't live to work!"
I went to Select Employment Services in the City (Jess & Claudia) and I thought that they were really helpful and gave me regular work - Telephone number 08 8468 8000.
from what i remember reading in the past, the advertiser newspaper was a good place to look for jobs or so i heard, hope this helps you some.
all the best with your search and hope you get fixed up soon.

It's really dissapointing - i work doing a trial for nothing - and don't even get a job out of it!.
Did you find it easy to get work in a salon??
