Dell finds work in 24-hours
DELL Mihinui couldn’t believe it.
The Biloela resident had left her previous cleaning job and lobbed into the Epic Employment office in late August.
Only 24 hours later, Dell got a call from the job agency to let her know a cleaning service needed someone.
“I was just ecstatic – happy as,” Dell said.
She said friends had suggested she try Epic, but she had planned to register with agencies in Gladstone.
Dell moved to Biloela from Sydney a year ago.
She has family that lives in the area, her sister and her family, who were happy she had found a job so quickly.
Dell encouraged those unemployed to visit Epic and see if they could beat her record of finding a job in two days.
International business Epic Employment Services provides a wide range of employment opportunities to help fight raising unemployment, according to Karen Bader, coordinator at Epic’s Biloela office in Callide Street.
The Brisbane-based business had been chosen by the Federal Government to be a part of its new $4 billion program Job Services Australia.
“This provides employment opportunities to the rising numbers of people who are finding themselves unemployed,” Karen said.
The company is also involved in getting people with a disability or a barrier to employment back inwork.
“People of all ages, cultural backgrounds and situations are eligible to seek help from Epic Employment Services in finding a job,” she said.
Epic has 26 offices in Australia and New Zealand, with 22 of those in Queensland.
Epic Employment Services has over 20 years of experience in employment and has always remained a free, not-for-profit organisation aimed at placing people in the community.
