Jobseekers must be registered to display ads or contact job-seekers and registration is very quick and easy. Employers can also display their company logo and have their company featured. The level of information displayed is entirely up to the employer and they have control of how they would like their vacancies applied for.

The WorkSafe SmartMove Certificate has been developed for students and new young workers educating them about the potential dangers, rights and responsibilities that exist within the workplace.

You will need to register with the website and log in before attempting the SmartMove Certificate, as progress, results and achieved certificates are saved.

The General Module introduces important facts about safety laws and common hazards, and needs to be completed before you can access the Industry Modules. Once you have completed the General Module, you can then select an Industry Module that best suits your future or current work placement, or your area of interest. Each of the Industry Modules contain more detailed information on the main hazards specific to each industry.

WorkSafe SmartMove will generate a downloadable and printable certificate when you successfully complete ONE Industry Module quiz. The Industry Module quizzes also contains questions on issues that were covered in the General Module. If a teacher/trainer wishes to integrate the SmartMove Certificate into the Passport Program, it is recommended that the Certificate isn't attempted until Lessons 1 to 4 of the Passport Program are completed. Students may struggle to complete the Certificate successfully without some prior WHS knowledge.

How to Dress For a Job Interview

Whether we like it or not, first impressions are important. During interviews, in particular, first impressions are everything.

Your appearance is the first thing people notice about you, and it can take as little as a tenth of a second for the interviewer to form an initial opinion about your suitability for the job.

So, if first impressions are largely defined by the choice of clothes, you need to make sure your attire is nothing less than perfect. With the tips and suggestions on this webpage, you can be sure to tick all the boxes for a successful first impression!
