My First Job
My First Job is an SYC initiative that recognises the changing landscape for young people seeking their first ‘real’ job. As employers (Government included) increasingly opt for employees who have at least two years’ experience, it has become increasingly difficult for young people to actually get those two years’ experience, particularly in their chosen field or career.
My First Job aims to establish supports for young people in their transition from learning to working. It advocates for greater awareness of the difficulties young people face in gaining entry level employment and of the impact of youth unemployment on Australia’s economic health.
