Finding a casual job
Out of all Year 9 & 10 SCCC students who have casual jobs, NOT ONE was found advertised in the newspaper...
60% were not advertised at all- with students finding opportunities by speaking to friends and family, or approaching the business directly.
This really highlights that if you are looking for work- tell people, tell anyone and everyone you want a job. Be proactive- approach businesses, volunteer, show interest in what they do. Put yourself out there...
Check out the link below for a great explanation of the new ATAR system.
