  1. Hi Everyone I'm a single, 25 year old female- I arrive in Perth at the beginning of December on a whv and have a few questions...! -How easy is it to pick up work? I have a marketing degree and PR/marketing background with a ton of office experience, so ideally I'd be looking to pick up similar work. Otherwise Ive been a bar manager, waitress, shop assistant, kitchen assistant... pretty much anything hospitality! So happy to do that too in the short term. My questions is, will I find work fairly quickly if I put in the usual hard work and procativity? would love to hear about anyones experiences! -On a similar note, I have an STCW95 (basic sea-fearing qualification) and a little experience stewardessing on yachts... does anyone know if there is any likelyhood of picking up work on boats? Be that tourist boats, dive boats, anything really... -How long should I book my first hostel for.. is two weeks about right? I'd be keen to get into a house/flat share pretty soon... - Can anyone reccomend a great hostel that helps you find work (i.e job boards and good contacts) and is NOT a party hostel? (I backpacked Austrlia when I was 18, so its a case of been there done that, now I'm feeling old and prefer to have active days and chilled out nights), but also not expensive? do share your experiences. -Finally, which neighbourhoods do you reccomend for a flat/house share? If I can afford it I'd love to be near the beach! I hear Freemantle and Subiaco are nice, any thoughts? Thankyou so much for any help, I'm super keen to hear from anyone doing the WHV in Perth
  2. Hi there! I'm in the process of finalising a move to Melbourne at rather short notice. I am looking for a room ideally with garage or off street parking. Granny flat would be perfect. Rather concerned at logging on to websites that ask for my "orientation" as a lead question for accomodation sharing! 50 year old male, married, two kids in UK. Family will follow after school exams finish in July next year. This has been so sudden we have not been able to plan ahead at all. So if anyone hears of anything please let me know. Non smoker, happy to pitch in around the house, used to kids/dogs etc. I'm a retailer and will travel quite extensively around Aus as well as the Far East on occassion( should that be near East I wonder?), so not going to be around all the time. Need someone for my motorbike if i bring it over, or if I buy one locally. Consider myself quite house trained ( read nagged)!! References available as company director.
