THINGS TO DO from the BEARS Team

Holidays are here…Best not waste them!

Some things to do

·         Turned 16? How about going for your Learner’s Permit. Or even your Boat Licence, Jet Ski and First Aid Certificate.

·         17? About time to go for your P’s. And let’s not forget about the complimentary RACQ membership. You should also look into completing an RSA certificate or adding to your sport coaching or umpiring. Looking for some Brownie points? How about helping out your Drama or Music teacher…it’s also great experience for later in life.

·         18 or older? Time to start saving for that first car. Make sure to get it checked for Road Worthy by RACQ or a certified Mechanic, NOT a neighbourhood friend. Holidays are a great time to look into a defensive driving or a modelling course, particularly for those of us who are interested in sports. It’s a great chance to model some new sporting gear and get paid!

Part time work L - where to look!

·         QPAC is always in need of Ushers and Part Time Admin staff. This could be the job that starts your career in Creative Arts and Theatre. Check out their website for more details.

·         UNI Students. This is the perfect time to start planning Christmas Work:

o   RESOURCE companies are currently looking for uni students who are interest in some paid work experience. Check out their website for more details.

·         Overseas and Interstate travellers will be coming through in large numbers during the Christmas Break so it is a great time to look at getting some work experience with a resort or hotel along the coast. Some key areas to look at would be – Cairns, Townsville, Mackay and Gladstone. What about a cruise ship job?

How is your resume looking? Have you got all your latest results, licences and other successes? If you want to get it checked over, just email it in to the BEARS Team at ASAP.

If you get your mid-semester results back and start wondering if you are on the right track or not, perhaps it is time to arrange an appointment with TED or VICKI. Appointments can be made by telephoning (07) 3210 0277.
