The Western Australian Community Resource Network (WACRN) is comprised of over 100 rural, remote and regional Community Resource Centres (CRCs). The centres are not-for-profit organisations that are independently owned and operated by their local community.
CRCs provide access to government and community services and information, and undertake community, business and economic development activities.
The WACRN is supported by the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development with funding from the State government’s Royalties for Regions program.
Your wardrobe tells its own story. You’ve been selected for an interview based on your skills and experience – but how you dress and present yourself can convey a great deal about your perceived character, values, work ethic and viability as a future employee.
There are more than 100 departments and agencies (collectively referred to as ‘agencies’) in the Western Australian public sector, ranging in size from just a few people in a single office to thousands of employees across the state. For a list of departments and agencies, please see the ‘Departments and agencies’ page on the wa.gov.au website.
While many of these people are employed in typical government roles—such as teachers, police, fire fighters, nurses, engineers and accountants—you may be surprised to learn that the public sector also employs people in a wide variety of positions including project managers, cleaners, gardeners and veterinarians.
Service Skills Australia is a not-for-profit, independent organisation, which is one of 11 Industry Skills Councils funded by the Australian Government Department of Industry, Innovation, Climate Change, Science, Research and Tertiary Education (DIICCSRTE) to support skills development for our industries.

Going for a job interview can be nerve wracking for anyone. You’ve got to make sure that you dress appropriately, arrive on time – or just a few minutes beforehand – and have a few copies of your resume printed out to take with you. Sometimes you’ll also need copies of your qualifications.
For ex-offenders, there’s an added level of stress as you may have to answer questions about past convictions. It might seem particularly challenging to leave a positive impression in your interviewer’s mind.
If you’re an ex-offender, the key to having a great job interview experience is to ensure you’re prepared in every way possible. This website has some useful tips on how you can prepare yourself for your next interview.
While there are as many different possible interview questions as there are interviewers, it always helps to be ready for anything. Which is why we've taken the time to prepare this list of 100 potential interview questions.
Will you face them all? We pray no interviewer would be that cruel.
Will you face a few? Probably.
Will you be well-served by being ready even if you're not asked these exact questions? Absolutely.
