I've seen a few posts recently where people are finding it hard to get work in Adelaide & thought it might be helpful if I shared our experience.
We've been here six months & we love it!!!! I was lucky enough to get a good job after about 4 weeks looking but my husband struggled. He has 20+ years finance & customer service experience but struggled to get any interviews.
Eventually after talking to several agents we narrowed down the problem to not having any Australian experience. So, he started volunteering at the Salvation Army in Marion for two days a week. One day on the community services desk & one day in the thrift shop. This not only gave him experience but also meant he had a focus & was much more positive. After he added the volunteer work to his CV he started getting interviews straight away & has since secured a job.
So, if you have time on your hands whilst looking for work why not think about volunteering for a charity, it will help others & may well help you get work sooner too!
