About Get Your First Job

Hello, I would love to tell you all about the origins of get your first job, where we aim to go and what we want to do for people looking for a job.


So if you have a few short minutes, and curious mind then I invite you to read on.


Mr. Lee

The Beginning

Our Team started the journey by wanting to equip and to train freelancers in the task of getting a job. We had an intention to run courses on succeeding in job applications.


However although we have worked with many employees locally and hundreds of freelancers online, we wanted to understand more about the thoughts and life of freelancers.

The First Book

We decided the best way to find out about the thoughts of freelancers was to compile stories of how freelancers go their first job. It was an eye opener reading about the struggles and the mind set of freelancers.


Then the decision was made to produce more publications for the purpose of supporting freelancers by showcasing the experiences of others.

Print and National Library

We spent hours learning and collating stories, and finally became successful in producing the first 4 books in the series and getting the books into the National Library of Australia.


We managed to sell a few copies on Amazon, but realised that we could do more and provide more value for job seekers as a whole.

Get Your First Job Website

After a few discussions, we decided that in order to get things moving we must also build a platform for people to share their story, for both employers/hirers and employee/freelancers.


This was then the birth of the Words of Wisdom Section and Job Seeker Stories

The Future

Up until now, we still have the original goal to produce valuable resources to help people in their job seeking journey. Get your first job continues to produce new books, and engages in both employers and recruiters to make the website a place for stories to encourage and to equip.


We plan to continue to produce more as resources and time allow.

Our Sponsors

Today, behind the scenes, the people who make it all possible are the people who purchase our books, and the people who sponsor a post through the Words or Wisdom section.


It is these people who ensure we continue to support us and allow us to engage our worldwide freelancing team to create and maintain getyourfirstjob.com.au
