I have absolutely no idea about your field,but in my line of work, volunteer work is the best way to get 'in'. You build relationship with people, & then when a job opens, they choose you who has proven yourself trustworthy over someone who they dont know. Could you possibly volunteer for a charity organisation or something? Or ask to do unpaid work experience to get some working hours behind you? It's tough 😩 sorry.

Its bookkeeping etc . I might just have to give a few not for profit places a call. Have tried accountants etc but all are to busy until aftee the new financial year to have someone volunteer

Are you a registered BAS agent or bookkeeper? Do you have any friends who have small businesses that you could do work for? With end of financial year fast coming up I think you might find this time of year tricky.

No, not bas registered. I have for 6 months completed the books for a friends business but she recently sold so therefore no more work. I am currently working in my old field of work until i can get some work in this area again.
Sorry, i am brisbane based

It would be so much work if you also work full time. I feel for you, i can barely keep house and work full time let alone complete business paperwork

Id be looking for a sole trader and start there. Build your brand this way. Sole trader tradies are your best bet as they may not have time or expertise or time to do their tax. I know alot of very wealthy sole traders with busy wives reluctantly doing their bookwork. So might be a way to go to start. Xx

Thank you for your advice, it was my way of thinking looking for sole traders etc

Same thing is happening to me atm. Ive just finished a Tafe course in Aged care and I'm doing work experience in an awful place. I applied for jobs while doing the course and even emailed places about work experience but they only want experienced people. The interesting thing is, most of the carers in this horrible place are really bad carers. I have to stick out the work experience because this is the only way I'm going to get a good job at the end. I was told the industry is ALWAYS wanted staff but ive not found that at all.
Maybe something like an internship or work experience would be the way to go. I would email every organisation in your field asking for any work experience...that's what ive done. I emailed several different organisations with my resume attached asking if they have any work.
