Gladstone single mum skills up working for the dole
AFTER leaving school in year 10 to look after her son, Casey Goodman has acquired plenty of skills that would make her suitable to many jobs.
Casey's skills include being a quick learner and a hard worker. She is easy going and has great customer service.
MAX Solutions co-ordinator Jose Sibley said there had been a push to sign more businesses for the Work for the Dole program, which did not cost them a cent.
"The benefits are huge for organisations as well as job seekers," Ms Sibley said.
"Organisations that host activities can get a helping hand from job seekers while assisting them with moving back into work.
"We can tailor Work for the Dole host programs to suit the organisation.
"We can work with other community organisations to set up joint activities...
"The opportunities are endless."
