Part of the trouble is that you need a TAFE certificate to be considered able to do anything here. It's like no-one can visualise working life without some stupid piece of paper that states the obvious. Wanna drive a truck? Sorry - your HR licence that you've had for bloody ages doesn't count as you don't have a Cert 3 in Road Transport. Wanna stack shelves for Woollies? Sorry - you don't have a Cert 2 in Shelf Replenishment.
It's all a load of old bollocks that's made even worse by being considered "unsuitable" for the job by some smacktard muppet who has never been anywhere near the job they're recruiting for.
