Shannae turned down for jobs because of sport
PLAY sport or have a job?
This was the choice 14-year-old Shannae Saltner was asked to make after a number of companies turned her down for casual work.
Turning 15 in September Shannae said she was ``annoyed'' at the fact she wasn't able to do both.
``I was quite upset when I was told by a number of managers that they couldn't give me a job because I played too much sport,'' she said.
``I love my soccer and certainly will not give it up for a job, I only play soccer Wednesday night, I train Thursday and play for two hours on a Saturday.
``I attached a soccer draw with highlighted times for when I played with my resume and when I called the managers they told me I played too much sport.''
She said she was available to work through the week, and throughout the whole weekend except for two hours on a Saturday.
Shannae said she wanted to work and to be able to have something to do on the weekend, while earning a little bit of pocket money.
``I am motivated and I don't want to decide between the two, because I know my sport will win,'' Shannae said.
