More than 1,500 Australians are vying for the coveted job hunting coach position in Queensland, with the latest recruiting round set to start today.
The job hunting coaches position is the second highest-paid in the country, according to the ABS, with some $1.4 million being paid out for the position last year.
But the jobs are tough to find in Queensland and those who do end up taking them have no experience or qualifications, according the Queensland Government.
There are around 1,800 job hunting jobs in Queensland.
There is a strong job market in Queensland for those who can go out and apply, said Queensland Job Agency director of recruitment Craig Wilson.
“We’ve had to go out in the bush and go out with people to look for jobs,” he said.
“We can find people from all walks of life, but we’re looking for people with some experience and qualifications, and we’ve got some people who have had some training or experience.”
“The first thing we ask is that you show the job hunting skills.”
We’ve got people with no experience and no qualifications, but they have some training and experience.
Craig Wilson, Queensland Job agency directorFor the job seekers looking to find a job in Queensland’s mining and iron ore sector, the first thing they need to do is get a job.
“The best thing to do when you’re looking is to go and see the job centre in Townsville,” said Mr Wilson.
“If you’re in the area, just go and go there and find the job you’re interested in, that’s the most important thing.”
Once you’ve found the job, you’re then able to come out to the mine, work and be able to go in there and talk to the people and talk about your experience.
“Then you can go back and do your application and you’ll get the job.”
Job hunting in the Queensland mining and ore sector is a lucrative industry and the majority of people seeking a job are from overseas.
“In terms of the people that are coming in, we have about 80 per cent of people that come in from overseas that have a degree in a mining industry,” Mr Wilson said.
For those that don’t, the best advice is to take the Queensland job hunting experience and work hard.
If you can’t get the mining job you want, you can always go out to work and find a different kind of work, he said, adding that there are more than 300 mining jobs in the state.
“When you’ve got someone who’s got some experience, then they can go into another job and be a part of that community,” Mr Williams said.AFL CEO Gillon McLachlan says the AFL is open to all forms of job hunting While there are no hard and fast rules for the job hunters job, there are some things that should be considered.
“It’s important that you have the right experience and qualification in terms of being able to look at a job that you might be interested in,” Mr McLachlin said.
He said a good job hunting recruiter should be able and willing to show you what they are looking for in a job, and that includes looking at a specific job.
There are a number of things to look out for, such as what they want to see and how they want it, he added.
The Queensland Government says there are around 800 job hunting coaching positions available in the State.
Job hunting coaches are the most expensive jobs in Australia, but if they are willing to apply, they will earn a decent wage, according Mr Wilson, who has worked with job hunting teams in Australia.
“You’ve got to look to see what you can do to get a good return on your investment,” he told ABC Radio Brisbane.
The Queensland Job Bureau said job hunting has been growing in the past two years.
“There is more demand for job hunting as the mining boom has come to an end,” said Job Agency Director of Recruitment Craig Wilson in a statement.
“Job hunting has continued to grow across the state, with employers in Queensland increasing their recruitment efforts in recent months.”
The job seekers have a choice to make, and there are a range of reasons they may want to pursue a career in the mining and oil sector.
“Some people might be looking to get involved in a certain industry or business and they would like to get that experience and knowledge and have a job,” Mr McMillan said.
Some people may want a more stable career and they can do so with the help of a job hunting team.
“Sometimes you might need to go away and do something with your life, and so you may want some stability and a steady job to do that,” he added, with a similar statement to what Mr Wilson has to say.
