Unemployed father of five to his last $ 90 after being rejected for 1000 jobs, is standing on the side of a road with a sign in the last ditch bid to find work
- Chad Pallett, 29, has applied more than 700 jobs in the last two months
- Father of five gave up stop-in-fly-out work on Mount Isa to be closer to his family
- He did not secure any work, so he handed out improvised characters that asked for work
An unemployed father of five has done everything to find a job after he has left the mining industry to be closer to his family.
Chad Pallett, 29, needs a cardboard sign with the words & # 39; work needed & # 39; detained and his mobile number written on it after being rejected for more than 850 jobs in and around Ipswich, Queensland in the past two months.
He has been desperate for a job since he gave up fly-in-fly mining on Mount Isa.

Mr Pallett needs a cardboard sign with the words & # 39; work needed & # 39; held on the side of a road
& # 39; When I started applying, I did 380 jobs in one day … I applied for 480 jobs a few days later & # 39 ;, he told Daily Mail Australia.
Mr. Pallett then went and issued his resume to every company that would consider him, but he still didn't hear back.
& # 39; I am looking for anything and everything – basically everything from cleaning toilets to tap operation. I specialize in mining, but unfortunately I no longer wanted to mining because I wanted to be with my family & he said.
He then resorted to extreme measures. He placed improvised plates, with discarded wood and laminated chipboard pieces, to ask for work.
& # 39; I put 15 signs through Ipswich with the text & # 39; & # 39; work needed & # 39; & # 39; and I also wrote my number. I was just sitting home one evening, stressed out, I didn't know what to do, I decided I had to take a risk, & he said.
& # 39; It is stressful because I have $ 90, without work I have no money to feed my family. & # 39;
His wife Shalyn Pallett, with whom he has four children, went back to Mount Isa in the hope of finding work.

Mr Pallet has a nine-year-old son from a previous relationship.
Being a Aboriginal Australian, Mrs Pallett has access to the indigenous employment program that helps Aboriginal people secure work.
The whole family was planning to go back to Mount Isa with her, but they didn't have enough money to make the trip, Mr. Pallett said.
He now has to look after the four children himself while finding it difficult to find a job.
& # 39; One of us must be given a job so that we can support these children and give them a good Christmas, & # 39; he said.
