1. Look for work on lIne.
You can use the sites listed to start your on line search for work. It is important to understand that most jobs are never advertised on line and the sites themselves are always changing. Do not just rely on the ones listed below.
2. Walk around and ask for work.
As you shop or visit place in your area and as you do your day to day activities ask if businesses or shops are hiring? Ask your family and friends to do the same. You can make up an excel spread sheet and make a list of all the place you would like to work call or visit. Then get out and do it, ask them if they a hiring and when or could you leave your resume with them.

3. Let everyone know you are looking for work.
Tell everyone you know that you are ready to find a job. Use your social media such as facebook to spread the word and be ready for an immediate response if a job comes up.
4. Ask friend or anyone who already has a job if their workplace is hiring.
This is not a time to be shy. Asking strangers and friends if they have a part time job available at their workplace or if their work place is hiring soon is an important step. This is the right thing to do as 70% of jobs are never advertised.
5. Find out from your Careers Adviser or your teachers if they know of any jobs.
Your Careers Adviser will let you know if jobs become available in the following ways:
- Jobs vacancies are placed on the careers room window.
- Listen on morning assemblies for updates.
- Via emails and newsletters placed on the schools website.
- I use Facebook and have joined the group Hawkesbury Job Solutions to find work. You can too.
Careers Advisers Tip - Use Facebook
Request to join this group and follow the rules of the group once you do. This is a place that draws on all the on line sites above and more to help you learn about jobs available.
