Recently some young mob came up to me and asked if when I was growing up, did I always wanna work on the radio? And to be honest, I told them being on the radio was the last thing I thought I’d be doing. See when I was growing up, there were two things I knew I was always gonna need in life - food and a car. So I thought I’d become either a chef or a mechanic. And when I left school, I actually did become a mechanic. It was the first of many jobs for me. But that feels like a lifetime ago… and things have changed a lot since then. Getting a job these days isn’t so simple.
Which is why - if you’re looking for your first job or even looking to change the job you’re in - the Indigenous Apprenticeships Program is a great place to start. Right now, the Australian Government has a bunch of deadly jobs being offered up in cities and towns all over country. You can get a full-time position in the Australian Public Service and a certificate or diploma qualification at the end of the year. Too good, eh?
If you’re motivated to change your direction in life and you wanna make a difference, then go ahead and apply. But do it soon ‘cos applications close on the 7th of May. It doesn’t take much to jump online to find out more and apply - just follow this link: www.humanservices.gov.au/indigenousapprenticeships.
