Application to Hardie Grant

It's a long shot, but I thought I'd try just sending my CV to an organisation that looks promising (book & magazine publishing), with HR in Melbourne: http://hardiegrant.com.au/magazines/careers
They do state on their website, under Careers, 'We welcome your enquiries'. I'll take them at their word and let you know if I hear from them at all. I stumbled on this website researching the publisher of a children's book in a series I'd quite like to try my hand at writing for. But I didn't tell them that.


  1. I've also shot my CV off to State Library of Victoria, where I believe changes are afoot and timing might be right for a little paid work opportunity. They can only say no. Or ignore my request!

  2. SLV said no:
    'State Library of Victoria advertises positions through various mediums [sic!!] as they become available, The Age, The Australian, SEEK and institutional notice boards' and advised me to keep an eye for notices on their website http://www.slv.vic.gov.au/
    Oh well!
