Bendigo Senior Secondary College has launched a free app for young people and students looking for work.
MYJOB features templates for cover letters, resumes, tips on preparing for interviews, information on how to get a tax file number, advice on becoming work ready and a jobs board.
The school won $10,000 in prize money at the Victorian Education Excellence Awards in 2011 in the Outstanding Education Support Team category and decided to create an app that would benefit students.
The app is the result of hard work and enthusiasm from school staff and local app designers.
‘We wanted to create an app that would empower students to take charge of their career and job search,’ designer Dave Hanson said.
MYJOB is available from the iTunes App store and Google Play.
The app aims make the transition from school to work easier and give students the knowledge and confidence to achieve their goals.
