I will leave my every single tie to this one land I was born into and be a koolie jetting rich people around from night spot to night spot.
My dreams of becoming a buff beach bum, thwarted by this sudden realisation - I am not all that I am, I am not. I am.. not. am I?
I need more and I seek it at your one stop shop, all thing nice and you pay now!
I love those shops. They make me feel evolved.
Anyhoo, on the way to over there, with your over here, and their over their.. I'll go this way.

It is completely and totally dependent on what's out there. Living in Australia, you should count yourself very lucky because the Australian economy has been spared a good deal of what's going on in the world because of mineral trading and that sort of thing.
I'm from an area of the U.S. where most counties have official unemployment rates of upwards of fifteen percent. I hate to break it to you, but not everybody can just pick up and move, either. Moving takes a lot of money, more money than people like to admit, and than most people are going to have if they're out of work.
2nd When calling a company if they ask you to send in your resume tell them you would rather drop it off in person, this shows enthusiasm and also gives you a chance to stick out from the crowd and will ensure they remember you.
Computers scan pages from top to bottom looking for relevant keywords. A keyword summary at the top of your page can help get your resume noticed. It is useful to make your resume more efficient when it comes to electronic retrieval. A short summary loaded with keywords will push your resume to the top of the search findings. This is ideal for scannable resumes, online resumes, job banks and online job applications.
Keywords are selected by a human reviewer and rated in terms of importance. They will define mandatory words and preferred words. The tracker will scan resumes for these words and each time it locates one it is a hit. Based on the number of hits your resume gets it will be ranked in the search results. The employer will then be able to locate the resumes that based on keywords are most suited to the position. If your resume doesn't appear in the top ten then you'll be lucky to get a look in.
Keyword rich resumes are essential for job seekers. The more words and phrases you can cover in your resume the better your chances are of finding a job. A keyword summary at the beginning of your resume is a good way to include words not found in your content. Be sure to cover all possibilities such as job titles, industry terminology, skills, experience and qualifications that you think will be valuable to your potential employer. Try to use words that will also appeal to the human reader too. This is a list that goes at the top of the page, computers scan from top to bottom so you will be getting hits straight away. It is for computer registration only so you just need to write down all the words you have come up with.
Load your resume with keywords and phrases to ensure your ranked high in the search results. Back up your keyword summary with words and phrases in your qualifications, skills, strengths and employment history. Remember it is a human that will be picking the relevant words but it will be the computer that decides whether your resume is a match with the job description.

My condolences dude,
Ive seen your posts and you come across as quite intelligent and witty, would you ever consider sales or customer service?
Sales jobs are quite easy to get and once you get over the stigma attached to such jobs they can be very rewarding.
I apologise if I come across as a know it all prick and your right that things are easier the younger you are but there is always something out there dude its just a matter of finding it.
