How long does it take to get an employer profile or ad approved?

Can I “bump” my ad back to the top of the listings?

Yes, if your ad has expired, edit the ad and resubmit it for approval. Once approved, it will reappear at the top of the list until another ad is posted.

How do I repost an advertisement?

Log into the Jobs Board, select the ad you want to repost, duplicate it, make any changes, and save the ad. It will then be reviewed and approved.

How do I edit or delete my ad?

Login to your account, visit your Job Postings and edit or delete the ad as needed.

Work Experience (Australia only)

Does work experience have to be paid?

Not necessarily. To quote the Fair Work Ombudsman - 

“Unpaid work can include work trials, volunteer work, work experience and internships. It also includes a vocational placement as defined under the Fair Work Act 2009. Unpaid work is lawful if it is a genuine work experience, vocational placement or volunteering arrangement.”

Work experience undertaken as part of College PLT is a vocational placement and as such can be unpaid.

The College does not recommend or endorse any positions, nor does it check the position for compliance with the Fair Work Act or any state award legislation or the Work Experience Rules. It is up to the student and the prospective supervisor to satisfy themselves in this regard.

Where can I find more information about providing work experience for the Practical Legal Training program?

As part of their Practical Legal Training course at The College of Law, students are required to complete up to 75 days of work experience supervised by a suitably accredited practitioner.
