Success for job hunters

MORE than half the participants in a back-to-work program have found jobs ahead of their graduation.

The 14-week Venturing Forward course was designed for women wishing to re-enter the workforce or who were unemployed.

Nine women graduated with either a Certificate II in Hospitality or Certificate III in Community Services at a ceremony at the new Recruitment Queensland offices in Ipswich City Square.

RQ managing director Alison McGrath said she would love to hear from prospective employers to secure work for the remaining eight women.

Applications are now open for entry into the latest round of the program.
