I am an 18 year old and I graduated from college late last year. Since then I have been seeking either part-time or casual work while I do a course at CIT. I have checked notice boards, The Canberra Times and job search websites localised in for the ACT to no avail, not to mention the careers websites for the major supermarkets and department stores.
It seems that the only positions available are for the public service (majority of positions are for managers and other positions require prior experience) and all the retail stores in the town centres (including Civic) are also seeking people to fill positions for management. Finding a job is hard keeping in mind that I have had no previous employment and cannot *checks newspaper* make cabinets.
Should I walk around the shopping centres handing in copies of my resume and make my presence known? or am I blind and cannot see the many hundreds of jobs in Canberra that lay before me?
