Workshop: How to Successfully Navigate the Employment Landscape in 2013
Wrap up - Melbourne Workshop February 8 2013
In partnership with Selection Partners, Adage.com.au - a Job Board and Online Community for Experienced Workers aged 45 plus, hosted a workshop in Melbourne exploring various tactics to help you find a job in the current market.
The room was full of professionals who had been successful in their previous roles. Finding themselves back in the job market, they needed to now learn “how to be successful in finding a new job!” The recruitment landscape has changed significantly in the past 5 years, which for many of the participants was the last time they looked for a new role.

Mature Age Apprenticeships
The Australian Government has launched many initiatives to encourage mature age workers to re-enter the workforce as a mature age apprentice.
Australian Apprenticeships are the best way to combine training and employment and they can lead to a nationally recognised qualification. Australian Apprenticeships are available to anyone of working age and do not require any entry qualifications. You can be re-entering the workforce or simply wishing to change careers.
Australian Apprenticeships are available in a variety of certificate levels in more than 500 occupations across Australia, in traditional trades, as well as a diverse range of emerging careers in most sectors of business and industry.
The Support for Adult Australian Apprentices payment initiative provides additional financial support to eligible Australian Apprentices or their employer where the Australian Apprentice is aged 25 or over and is completing an Australian Apprenticeship at the Certificate III or IV level in an occupation outcome that is regarded as a skills shortage area.
