10 Tips for Your New Job

No matter your education or experience background, the advice for starting work is always the same. Here are 10 tips to help you succeed in any workplace...

Writing a Targeted Resume

Cookie-cutter resumes are a thing of the past. To stand out from the crowd, it’s important your resume answers the recruiter’s major question; 'How will I benefit from employing this person?'

jobactive Eligibility

ELIGIBILITY AT A GLANCE

The jobactive program is designed to help you move from income support payments into paid employment. You may be eligible for jobactive services if you receive payments such as:

  • JobSeeker
  • Youth Allowance
  • Parenting
  • Any other payment that has mutual obligation requirements

Mutual obligations are certain tasks and activities you have to complete in return for your payment. These might include looking for work, studying, training or attending appointments with employment services providers.

Services Australia will assess your circumstances and eligibility to access the jobactive program. If you are eligible, they will refer you to a jobactive provider.

Are there other ways to access jobactive?

FURTHER SUPPORT

If you aren’t on any of the income support payments listed above, or you’re receiving income support but don’t have mutual obligations, you may be able to volunteer for jobactive services if you: 

  • are not working or studying full-time, and 
  • have the right to work in Australia. 

You can find more information about how to apply for jobactive services as a volunteer jobseeker by clicking this link

“After all the personal and medical barriers I was going through, it’s great to have people that understand and help me. The last time I worked was over 20 years ago due to jail and other barriers. Now I am raising my 2 sons and I am able to go to volunteer to get some skills.” Troy Grogan said.

THE PROCESS

Once you’re connected to Sarina Russo Job Access, we’ll contact you to set up your first appointment.
