Larger companies also take longer I've found. Also I've had where I didn't get a job but they will ring up later say in a few months because they like you for another job.

Bit of a numbers game of just getting the resume out there.

Tight job market here at moment in Australia, wheels are falling off the economy a bit.

I just applied for a job!

It depends how urgent the vacancy needs filling. They may just be waiting for a number of applicants before handing out interviews

Ah that's a good point. I hadn't really thought about that. I've never applied for a job before & I've got no clue about what to expect

Good luck- don't give up or feel bad if
Nothing happens most times people hire people they know- so if you really want to work there do NOT give up or feel bad until you've established some kind of relationship with them, maybe through a class or training they may offer? And apply with the person you know.

I usually go to the same store & every time one of the guys there sees me, he's like "morning Katie" & I just go "morning Toby" XD we're already on first name basis XD so I'm hoping he'll put in a good word for me XD

Wow this is pretty impressive..

I know the aquatics manager at my local Dobbies and am looking for a job there for the summer.
Without trying sounding like a moron, I think they could use me in there 😉


Dyou mind saying which branch you're looking at?
