Looking for work 

Getting a job is a great way for you to make new friends and become more independent.

Before you start looking for work there's a few things you should think about which will help you find a job which best suits you:

  • What do you like to do and what are you good at?
  • What would you not want to do - even if you were being paid
  • Do you want to work before or after school, or on weekends?
  • How would you travel to work - by public transport, bicycle, car or walking?

Your parents, your school and NSW Industrial Relations can all help you to find out what is and is not allowed to happen at work and what to do if you think something at work is unfair.

This website explains things about work which adults might expect you to know, like 'employment contract' or 'award'.

Check out the info on the left so when you find the right job, you'll be sure to know the deal!
