Jobs go crazy
CASSIE Hetherton was out of work for four years and has just found a position through the Chronicle's Jobs 4 Us initiative.
Now, she is living life to the full and loving her new role with the Bayaroma Cafe on the Esplanade, in Hervey Bay.
This week, the Chronicle compiled and published a regional record 188 jobs in its Tuesday edition. More jobs will be listed next Tuesday.
Collaborating employment agencies and government departments report the affect on jobseekers has been profound.
"It's been fantastic, we have had over a couple of hundred responses to positions in the Chronicle," said Community Solutions assistant manager Peter Meier, who helped place Cassie.
"People walk in with the page out of the paper with jobs highlighted. As with Cassie, they did not realise how many jobs were out there until they saw them listed in the Chronicle.
"Jobs 4 Us helps answer anybody who says there is no work out there."
