Anyone out there who is in the process of changing jobs or looking for one?

This is a thread to help our job prospecting efforts, from offering advice to picking someone as a referee,

I think for those who are looking for a job should go to a site called Linked In where you can contact employers directly and look at the company profiles.

My advice for part time jobs:

Ask for manager and hand them your resume (anyone else will just throw it in the bin or forget about it)

Apply at places even if they dont have "help wanted", that means if they do need people you'll be first on their list and you wont have any competitors

thats all I got =/

Been scouring sites such as seek and gumtree and have been applying to random jobs here and there.

So far it hasn't been effective for me, but I'm going to search for places with "workers wanted" signs and physically hand in my resume. Hopefully I'll find something soon! :'D

LOL from relationship LOL

Don't worry, there is a first time for everything LOL. Customer service is an important skill that you can only learn through experience. Don't think you are working, let's think that you are learning how to deal with customer, solve problems, keep customers coming back, look at customers' emotion to capture value from them. You also can apply what you study from uni to your job for example marketing (up-sell, cross-sell, give your boss advice about promotion...), accounting ( calculate how much profit they might get for a week, analyse it, look around and chat with your neighbors to see whether it is a good or bad business, have a view of how different business systems work, probalby you will do stock control, it's fun too) AND consumer behavior (lol, a good waiter/clerk can double or triple the sales of a shop, that's what my boss said). Stalk how a manager run a business Phil, no one will teach you that skill but you need it in order to success lol
LOL , Phil, In the first interview for an accounting job, I still remember she told me how much they appreciate for the customer service experience even when that's for an accounting related job, hence, you have more benefit then you think to work for that shop. Get it Phil. Study, earn experience while you get paid, it's cool
