thanks for your reply and assistance. I have sent my resume in to a couple of places when I was applying on Seek.com. One centre advertised on Seek, actually asked to hand the resume in. I did my OSHC prac there a few years ago, so I was hoping to get into that centre, but that was 6 wks ago. I did follow it up, but nothing! I will approach a couple of others and see what happens. I think this area I live in(Sunshine Coast) is hard to get work. (not only in childcare) As I have not gained any previous work in childcare, they might look at someone who has more experience, perhaps?I have only been in and completed work placements, so I have all that on my resume. Any paid childcare was in NSW in a private home in OSHC, but that was in the 1980's! I guess I will just make a list of the centres and keep approaching the Directors and see if I can get a foot in THAT door! I am not on Facebook, but I have also tried Gumtree and We Need A Nanny and other similar agencies online last year(had a couple of ladies make enquiries)....not sure about other Childcare agencies?
