What is the best way to go about geting a job?
Okay, I have no experience in many useful things, I have a Diploma of Arts which is great to have but doesn't make me attractive to employers... If I get a job interview I'm either too nervous, too "myself", or come off too uptight and distracted because I'm trying not to be either of the two former. The thing is, I don't want any of the jobs I apply for, I just need the money. Hence, when they ask "why do you want this job?" I don't know what to say. It's hard to get work doing what I love - theatre - and it's even harder to find paying jobs in that area. So until I get a decent acting job, I have to rely on Centrelink for money, who in turn want me applying for at least 10 jobs a fortnight. That is hard to do because there's just not enough jobs to apply for! And around and around it goes... So, I'll end my rant now, and hand the reigns over to you, whoever is reading this.
