Do you ever get any part time jobs come up? Have been in Oz for 6 weeks and looking for some part time work. Have worked in offices, secretarial work but have also worked in retail ! Part time or couple of days a week would be good as hubby is working full time.
Any advice would gratefully received,
Please feel free to PM so that I can forward you my email address as I would rather not put it in a posting. That is the best way to send your resume to me.
With regards to part-time work - it comes around sometimes, but again, PM me and I can advise individually depending on the type of work you are looking for.
All other enquiries/posters on this thread - please PM me so that I can forward my email address to you directly.
Thanks for all your interest.
We arrived 8 weeks ago and have permanent residency visas.
I have only ever worked at 2 companies (both for 13 years each!), both in the motor trade, as a sales administrator.
I have registered with several agencies and done their tests but I am struggling to find work because A) I am not experienced at Microsoft Word (have only used it to type a letter) and B) I am not familiar with Excel and C) I am only wanting part time work (up to 30 hours Mon-Fri - either school hours (I have 2 children) or spread over 3 or 4 full days.
I have applied for jobs out of the newspaper but have been unsuccessful so far. I think they look at my CV and see that I have not mentioned Word or Excel (even though the vacancies don't specify this) or does it put people off that I've only had 2 jobs?
I have been promoted to Sales Admin in both jobs so it's not like I haven't made any progress.
I would call myself an 'all rounder'.
I have done telephonist, receptionist, banking, credit control, purchase ledger and sales admin.
The other problem the agencies are having is that my 2 referees are not responding quickly enough to mine or the agencies requests for references.
I am willing to do any clerical role, I'm just having a problem getting fixed up.
