    I would have suggested the government job vacancies as well. Are you filling out your selection criteria properly?

    Hi Alex

     

    I'm a former solicitor - I'll be moving to Adelaide in October and I suspect that I'll have the same problems when it comes to finding a job. Don't want to go back to legal practice. A bit of a square peg faced with a lot of round holes when it comes to finding work. I am also starting to look at Government jobs - if you come across any agencies that fit the bill please let me know. Good luck

    Hi yes it is a bit tricky however you should have better success than I. The best agency I have found is Julia Ross their website is www.rossjuliaross.com and the contacts I have found the best are Lennica Watkins (lennica.watkins@juliaross.com) and Ashleigh Allon (ashleigh.allon@juliaross.com). They have found me a job today infact that I originally applied for direct two months ago! They are very switched on and appreciate our predicament. Good luck mention I recommened them might help!

    Hi Alex

     

    thanks for that - nice to hear that you've landed a job - encouraging too. Are you back in the law?

    I'll contact Julia Ross and mention that you recommended them

     

    regards

    Hi Alex - irate solicitors? - I can hardly believe it! You must have been in commercial chambers. Seriously though, they do tend to be a pretty irate bunch as a rule, and that's being polite - and people ask me why I got out of the law!
