Looking for work on a cert 3

Post by Laurarosed » Thu Mar 05, 2020 3:14 pm

Hi everyone

I have found this page great help with my assignments but I am wondering if anyone else is finding it hard to get a job.
I started my cert 3 online in December and every assistant job I apply (average 4 per week) for I either don't get a response or else get an automated reply that I'm not what they are looking for.
It is getting a bit disheartening as I am 33 and doing this as a career change and don't want to go back to being a hairdresser but I might have no choice.
Is there a shortage of assistant jobs out there? I am in the sunshine coast.
I have even emailed smaller childcare facilities to put myself out there but not one reply.

Is anyone else in my situation? Do many people get a secure job from doing work experience?

Looking forward to your thoughts.
