What skills are needed in Cairns?

Hi there, I'm 46, have over 25 years administrative experience, and I have recently completed a Certificate III in business. I am a hard worker, always willing to go the extra mile. However, here in Cairns, I cannot get a job! I have applied for countless administrative positions, many I could do easily, but hardly ever hear from the employers, let alone interviews. I will take anything, and accept the award wage, but I can't get anything at all.

Are there any courses I can do that will get me a job here in Cairns? Obviously trades are not for me, as I am 46, female, and not really technically minded.

Are there any skill shortages here in Cairns that I can train for? Is there anything I could learn which will put me in good stead with getting a job. I am desperate. Please help.
