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!

Year 13 is brought to you by the people who have spent too many years being told what to do, when to do it, and how it should be done.
When we were kids, we were asked “What do you want to do when you grow up?” Most of us said something along the lines of “Play for the Wallabies, marry Baby Spice and be a trillionaire”. But lives change, ambitions change, the Wallabies stopped winning and sh*t got real.
We’ve broken things down and sorted it all out so you can find anything you need to know about jobs, studying, gap years, travelling, apprenticeships, money and discounts. The best part is that there are absolutely no rules.
There’s no right or wrong way…whatever you choose, just make sure it’s worth your while. Take ship tonnes of photos, get out there, balls up, have fun, give everything and anything a go and learn from your mistakes.
Create a dick drawing app; we don’t even care, because you have got the rest of your life to make up for it.
Year 13 is the first year of the rest of your life. ENJOY IT!

The solutions to the issues portrayed in the five minute video are contained in a comprehensive policy document, called Empowered Communities and Living Change. This is a promotional and motivational video to raise the awareness of our people in the Kimberley to the issues we face.
Many of our families are caught in a cycle of poverty and despair and have been stereotyped as not having the ability to break this cycle and live a better life. All families have a key role to play in breaking this cycle for themselves and need to hear what is happening and be empowered to achieve change.
There is no issue of racism – as the message is for Aboriginal people, by Aboriginal people – only a narrow minded person who does not fully understand our strategy would call it racism. The children will learn to know better if they are taught, don’t underestimate their ability to help themselves. The real issue of racism come from people who have low expectations of Aboriginal people and who do not believe they have the ability to achieve any better than what they have. This type of thinking only perpetuating the poverty lifestyle many of our people experience which is evidenced by the high incarceration rate in the Kimberley, high levels of FASD and other key indicators. Our children can be powerful motivators to change their lives, if supported and educated.
You are entitled to your opinion, but as an Elder in the East Kimberley with an extensive and dispersed family –with issues from grief to drugs, I think I am well placed to know what is working, when you have over 60 years living here, working with young people, burying their families, then perhaps you will be well placed to know what is the wrong and right way to proceed.
The traditional culture is a positive motivating force for change but even this is being undermined by the increasing prevalence of alcohol, drugs and other negative influences even on remote communities. The enhancement of culture and other positive social norms and values are a key part of our strategy to help families break the cycle of poverty but it is also imperative that our people learn to live and survive in two worlds.
There are many programs, Aboriginal Education officers, parents groups and community programs that make the white ideals into Aboriginal understanding, - there are Aboriginal schools which are successful in working in both world, perhaps you should attend one and see just how much our children do know and learn. They are our future and we need to work with them and their families to walk in both worlds with confidence and to enjoy the same standard of living everyone else takes for granted.
