Student canoes 14km with Duke of Ed, still no closer to Macca’s job

“They said it would look really good on my resume.”

A young student by the name of Ashley (18) is considering legal action against the Duke of Edinburgh Award after failing to get any job interviews despite a Bronze Duke of Ed on her CV.

“I only did it because they said it would look good on my resume,” she explains. “Turns out it’s completely useless. That, and half the group ended up in tears”.

Reports indicate that girls canoeing at the front of the boat became highly distressed when they turned around to find their partner, “not paddling at all.”

Today, Ashley is determined to get a minimum-wage job despite this set back and has explained that while she is only available one afternoon a week, that she’d make a great employee.

It’s not all bad news though, one recent Duke of Ed survivor named Rebecca (18) easily obtained an interview with her local Coles:

“I kept trying to tell them I had civic competence but they didn’t even know what it meant. Can you believe it?” Rebecca is yet to hear back.

Ashley and her canoe partner have since reconciled their differences, “We both got a cold and had a day off school. It was great.”
