Hi All, This is my first post. To start things off, I have over 6 years in the construction industry (mainly in civil & structural engineer drafting) with experience running my own jobs back home in Jersey. To back all this up I have multiple qualifications (2/3 of my BSc (Hons) Construction Management completed), yet I get turned away from every job I apply for due to the same reasoning "Australian Experience Essential". How is anybody meant to gain experience in nobody is willing to open a door? I have even tried applying for traineeship roles, telling them I don't mind taking the drop in salary, etc, explaining how they will gain out of it due to the fact they only need to teach me Australian codes. Yet I get turned away because I am, to them, "Over Qualified"!! Its so aggravating!! I'm even applying Australia wide for jobs! Still no door opens! Has anybody else had this problem? If so how did you get past it? Rant Over!
I've recently moved to Perth 3 weeks ago and already found a hairdressing apprenticeship in the lovely centre of Subiaco, but I'm aware that they are looking for a hard working, talented and enthusiastic new junior to join me in our salon. The salon is super busy (i'm not just saying that I'm even struggling to keep up) and the hours are long, but so worth it as its an amazing company and the people who work there are really fantastic at what they do! I currently live in Joondalup and catch two trains every day, which makes the day seem a lot longer so you need a long lasting stamina. You will start as either traineeship or apprentice so incredible opportunity if you are looking for a new career if you've just moved over! (Also if you are 25+ you can start an adult apprenticeship over here) If you would like more information on vacancy please PM me! Jessica
