Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Opinion -

SCHOOL leavers who are try­ing to get a job face an up­hill battle un­less they know some­one.

I have come to this con­clu­sion af­ter watch­ing my daugh­ter ap­ply for many jobs on­line; it's a face­less ex­er­cise.

If you do try to ap­ply you are told to ap­ply on­line and then re­ceive no feed­back what­so­ever un­less you get an in­ter­view.

Just one of the prospec­tive em­ploy­ers out of dozens and dozens had the cour­tesy to send a text say­ing the role had been filled. Name and ad­dress sup­plied.
