The Business Council of Australia has launched a new resource called ‘Being Work Ready: A Guide to What Employers Want,’ which specifically targets young jobseekers.

This resource is designed to improve young people’s understanding of what work readiness involves, and how to better prepare for their transition into the labour force.

A copy of the guide was sent to every high school in Australia, as well as Federal and State and Territory Education Ministers, with the aim of using it to better prepare students for entry into the labour market.

An electronic version of ‘Being Work Ready’ is available at
