Workforce Goals; Careers Day Helps Women Feel More Empowered and Positive


GEORGIA Byrne has been unemployed for almost three months.

The 21-year-old was laid off recently and even though she has youth on her side and a dual degree in arts and business under her belt, she cannot find full-time work even after three interviews and more than a dozen job applications so far.

"I've worked since I was 14 and it's really difficult at this time," she said.

"I want to work, I don't want to sit around at home and feel useless. I want to help myself, earn some money and pay the bills.

"I am on about five different (job) websites on the internet for an hour or two every day, I look in the paper on weekends, I have been letting people I know that I'm looking for work, I'm handing out my resume and I have registered with Mission Australia and (Caloundra recruitment agency) HRM."

Georgia attended a careers information day hosted by HRM Contracting and Consulting last Wednesday.

"I attended a session on goal-setting and learned that not many people write down the goals they set, or the steps they need to take to achieve them," she said.
