Top tips to get a job in Australia

You’ve got the visa – Now you need the job! But where do you start?

  • Get yourself a Working Holiday Package in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne or Cairns.
  • With an airport transfer, accommodation, help setting up a tax file number, bank account, CV help, 12 months access to an online job search and job offices throughout Australia for some face-to-face advice, you have all the essentials for an easy start.
  • Think about your skills. Everybody would like to be the cool bartender in the hippest cafe but what else can you do?
  • Work on getting as much experience as possible before you leave, polish up your CV, the more preparation you do beforehand, the quicker you can get going.
  • And if you do have bar experience, remember that in Australia you need to have an "RSA certificate". Our team in Australia can help you with that.
  • Make each job interview count. Be on time, do some research and be prepared to convince your future employee that you are the person they need.
  • Try something new. There are many opportunities out there if you are willing to give them a chance – ever thought about being a water slide tester?
  • Plan your time. Think about how much time you want to work and how much time you want to play. This is your Down Under experience - Make the most of it.
  • Have some backup cash. It’s no fun arriving in Australia and feeling stressed about getting a job from Day one.

No worries mate - you’ll be living and working like a local in no time.
