Launch of Regional Prosperity Plan

Prosperity Plan Paves a Path into Goulburn Murray’s Future with Equality Central

“The language, and the approach, have de-valued Aboriginal people over the last 150 years. We have an opportunity to change the narrative from a cost to society of maintaining the welfare structures, to an investment language here in our region that looks at the future of indigenous peoples, the shared culture, the shared economy and…

1. Being ‘work ready’ might be easier than you think
It is not just skills that make you ‘work ready’. While skills are important, employers are often willing to teach skills, whereas other things they cannot. Our employers unanimously reported a ‘work ready’ young person has: a good attitude – is keen and interested, Willingness to learn and get as much out of the role as possible, Interest in the industry and the type of work in it, Reliability – the ability to commit and turn up on time

2. Employers are trying to work out what you are like in your application – throw out the template letter!
Write a personalised job application that is specific for the job. The best way to make your job application letter, CV and interview stand out is to be authentic and say something genuine about you. It’s your personality and interests they are looking for. The employers said the biggest ‘red flag’ is an application that was not written specifically for the job (a generic template letter), was obviously written by someone else, or if your parent did the approach for you. Never send a standard application.
Make sure your application letter and CV:
• Are easy to read.
• Get straight to the point:
• Outline your experience.
• Match your skills to the job.
• Have good referees.

3. Work experience is vital, but it can be many things
There are alternatives to work experience that employers value. They are also looking to see if a young person is responsible, has initiative, and has teamwork, people/customer service, communication, and organisation skills. Examples of experience employers said they would look on favourably on a CV, over and above paid jobs included:
o Volunteering or community work
o A long-term commitment to a sport (particularly a team sport)
o Project work or extra-curricular activities in a school setting
o Tutoring or involvement in school holiday programs
o Aged or child care (babysitting)
o Organising an event, group, or competition
o Involvement in an interest, hobby or youth club
o Certificates: White Card, First Aid, Responsible Service of Alcohol, or other certificates

4. Do not know where the opportunities are? You are not alone
There is no one place in our region where jobs are advertised. Employers reported using: Seek, Facebook, Word of mouth, LinkedIn, Walk-ins, Newspapers, Other social media, Universities, The local trade school, Footy clubs and School contacts.
