  • I hope you succeeded, how are you going now ?

  • Most of these answers below are very helpful – good luck for the future, I hope you find something that works for you!

  • You might be eligible for assistance with a job network agency if you are on income support payments. I would suggest have a friend look at your resume and look online for jobs. Have a look at jobs you want to do and check what they ask for – if you don’t have the certificates consider studying. Check your local shops too – a lot of places still put ‘help wanted’ signs up. Or ask directly. If you don’t have any recent work experience – some volunteer work might help you get a referee and current experience – good luck!

  • Good luck – it must be tough trying to find work and managing all the household stresses

  • Organisation is key! Write things down, plan ahead.

  • Centrelink?

  • Build a support network, reach out to friends and family who may be able to help out. Find a good daycare in your area or before/after school care. Office jobs are usually Monday – Friday, 9am-5pm which makes it much easier to juggle around. A lot of businesses have started focusing on flexible working arrangements so you maybe able to work more suitable hours or work from home. Good Luck.

  • This is a tough one. For starters, if your kids aren’t in school, you’ll need a child care agency. If your kids are at school, you’ll need a job that fits around school hours. Good luck working it all out
