Job chances ?look good
HAVING gone the distance, life is definitely looking up for some of the jobseekers featured in Wednesday's Coffs Coast Advocate. In our page three story the six unemployed people were preparing to set out on a '7-Day Employment Marathon' armed with 2000 flyers to distribute to business houses across the city. "We visited nearly every shop and business between Bunnings North and Bunnings South, as well as in Toormina and Sawtell," one of the jobseekers, John Dwyer, said. "The response was fantastic, so good, in fact, some of us now have interviews to look forward to." Mr Dwyer said he has four interviews scheduled for the next few days. "One is in the retail sector, another is in the transport area, and the other two are for sales commission-based jobs," Mr Dwyer said. "I believe David Blake and Maureen Green also scored some good leads, so hopefully a job might not be too far away." Mr Dwyer said the support of Guys and Dolls Hairdressing and the Coffs Coast Advocate had really made a difference. "When we knocked on doors people already knew a bit about us, and our new haircuts certainly meant we made a good first impression."
