New jobs at the Department of Employment and Labour! Get all the details here.



The Department of Employment and Labour has announced that it will be hiring 15 new employees in the upcoming year. If you’re looking to take your career in a new direction, these are some great opportunities to get you started! Check out the full list of open positions here!


How to apply

The first step in applying for a new job with us is to head over to our careers page by clicking here. From there, you can find out about specific job opportunities, as well as instructions on how to apply for open positions. 


The application process will vary depending on what position you're interested in, but we've prepared some basic tips that can be helpful no matter what kind of role you're looking for:


A) Make sure your resume reflects your skills and experience related to the position. While there are many different types of resumes, make sure yours stands out from other applicants'.


We recommend using an up-to-date version of Word or Google Docs so it's easy to format properly and ensure your content is easy to read. Remember, resumes are often scanned before being read fully, so make sure yours stands out with a professional appearance.


You should also include relevant keywords from the job description in your resume's title or summary section (i.e., Entry Level Graphic Designer).


This way, if someone reviewing applications isn't familiar with graphic design terminology they'll still be able to easily identify your qualifications based on context clues alone.


Your cover letter can provide more detail about how you're qualified for a particular role, but don't forget that you can use that space to highlight any particularly impressive accomplishments or experiences.


If you're not sure what kind of information would be helpful, reach out to people who work in similar fields for advice—they might have some suggestions for things that would help distinguish you from other candidates.


A) Prepare answers to common interview questions: Interviewing is one of those things that seems intimidating until you've done it enough times—and even then, it can feel like there's always something new to learn.


But we've got some tips that will help no matter what stage you're at: First off, know what questions you're likely going to get asked ahead of time.


What are you going to do?

Enrolment officer is a high-paying job within itself, but you can also make commission by selling courses on behalf of other companies. Even better: it's 100% commission, which means that you can get up to 30k in commission for a single sale (on average), depending on your company's policies and incentives.


They don't call it enrolment officer for nothing! To be an enrolment officer, you have to work well under pressure, be resilient to failure and have excellent written communication skills. Sounds like a perfect role for me! So let's get started!


First I need to find out more about my potential employer. What do they offer? What are their values? Where do they fit into my life plan? There are so many questions... Luckily there's plenty of information online!


I'll start with their website and social media accounts, then I'll search for reviews from former employees online. That should give me enough information to decide whether or not I want to apply for one of these new positions.


If I decide yes, then next comes writing a cover letter and CV... hmm... Aha! The recruitment department has already posted some sample applications online - what a relief! Now I just need to tailor them slightly so they're specific to each position.


This was easier than I thought. Next step is finding out when interviews will take place and booking time off work accordingly... Oh no! This could take weeks?! It looks like there aren't any upcoming interviews until next month. Guess I'd better keep looking while waiting for news back from them...


How are the jobs paid?

Some were full-time, some part-time, others contractors - both casual and permanent. Their pay varied depending on experience, qualifications and so on - some paid a lot more than others. In one case they even had a job that paid in 'swag' (product).


Each job comes with different responsibilities and it's not just about coding or writing but also marketing yourself on social media, creating your portfolio (your website or digital brochure) as well as designing business cards to show potential clients/employers you mean business...well...like literally!


They're not looking for someone who has been around the block but rather someone who is willing to learn, has enthusiasm and will be a team player. It's important that applicants understand what they're applying for before filling out an application form because we want them focused on their skillset, where they can add value, how long they've been doing what they do etc.


Make sure you are able to talk confidently about your work history when completing an application form; if there are gaps don't be afraid to explain why or provide evidence of what you have been doing instead of working during those periods; try highlighting things like volunteering which may give insight into other areas you could apply your skillsets in. 


Also make sure you read up on our organization and get familiar with our mission statement, values and goals because knowing these will help you tailor your responses to questions asked in an interview. And remember:


The best way to get hired is by first making connections via social media channels such as LinkedIn. You never know who might know someone else who works at our organization or knows someone else interested in hiring you. Word of mouth goes a long way!

Where can you find more information?

Employees in most US states are protected by a system called unemployment insurance. This program provides financial support to individuals out of work through no fault of their own.


For example, if you're fired, quit or laid off, you may be eligible for partial unemployment benefits while you look for new employment (the length depends on state regulations). To apply, visit your local unemployment office or call an employee hotline.


The State Labor and Workforce Development Agency is responsible for overseeing these programs; check their website for contact information.


Unemployment assistance is funded by payroll taxes from employers who must also meet eligibility requirements set forth by federal law. As with other forms of compensation, employees are expected to pay back what they receive when they return to work—with interest.


Don't forget that taxes will be withheld from any unemployment checks you receive as well. If you have questions about how to file your tax returns, please consult a professional accountant.
