Im trying to get work but current climate means my chances arent very high and trying to organise care for my children not great,
if removal of FTB B happens it will drive us down alot
They obviously also need to help create jobs away from cities.
Sadly they don't seem to care much about the out of control housing market as it supports construction.
And all this money invested in toll roads when what we need is public transport.
We are governed by dinosaurs.
although when its 1 job to 20 people applying my chances are slim there (hense why Im studying areas that should increase my chances of work)
statistically Im one the 'no freaking way we'll employ you' list, single parent, havent worked in 5 years so my resume is pretty bad to look at and Im in my late 20s, all of which play against employing me vs employing someone else
Sell what you have done not what you haven't done.
If you're studying then fill some of the gap with that.
Ps They don't need to know you're a solo parent.
They don't even need to know that you are a parent.
My DH would employ anyone fresh out of studying regardless of their age. As long as they got the skills and the can-do attitude.
Don't forget that if you have no experience that would be reflected in your wages and some employers would much prefer cheaper employees that they can further train.
We both agree that the current PPL is inadequate and this policy is just going to make it worse. It makes me sad to think of mothers being forced back to work earlier than they may feel ready and leaving very young infants in care they may not be comfortable with. It really shouldn't be about politics - too bad the country is run by politicians.
