Tough search made harder

I am registered with Centrelink as a "voluntary" jobseeker and was in turn registered by them with a local job agency. After providing them with my details and a copy of my resume, I was told they would get back to me in a couple of weeks but they didn't. Three months later, I was sent a notice of an appointment with them. I rang to re-schedule it but was told I did not need to come in at all and was wished "good luck". Only job seekers on "New Start" and the accredited government funding interest these agencies. One wonders why they put on the sham? We need agencies which help all unemployed even if it is only a matter of help and advice.
