Why You Should Employ These People
By Jobstar

Employers often ignore the very best applicants for jobs. They are not invisible; they are there ready and willing to work with the skills and experience that is required.

  • Over 50’s who are fit and healthy: Tradespeople, Accountants, Sales, Farmers, IT, Real Estate, Legal and more. They contribute skills and experience, reliability, strong work ethic and communication skills.
  • New Australians and their descendants: Because applicants do not have an Anglo-Saxon names this does not reflect on their suitability for the job. Check them out.
  • Disabled persons: With every disability comes an ability – the job may be suitable for persons with a disability. There is new technology to enable communication with all employees. Access may be a simple matter to install.
  • Young people: An enthusiastic young person willing to learn can be a great bonus for any company, prepared to mould themselves into the operations of your company whilst learning skills at the same time.
  • Women: The days of women being only homemakers are over. They are there: looking for jobs. Choosing suitable applicants from both males and females, even breaking the glass ceiling is in the best interests of all employers.
