Hi all,

 

I'm flying to Sydney on September 2nd to start my one year working holiday. Does anyone have any tips on finding jobs? I thought Sydney would be the best place to start but I have friends in Melbourne so I may move down there if it's easier to find work. I have good experience in Law, Hospitality and retail, but i'm really not fussed what work I do, would happily work in bars, shops, construction, regional etc. My main concern is finding a job quickly as I only have limited funds!

 

Staying in a central hostel for the first week or two (probably should book that), but after that i will be looking to move into the suburbs and get a houseshare or apartment if I find work in Sydney.

 

If anyone is in Sydney or Melbourne from September then let me know, would be good to hear your thoughts and discuss all things Australia!

Do your RSA (Responsible Service of Alcohol) course not long after you arrive, search on www.seek.com.au for jobs, or just keep a look out in pubs and cafes as they sometimes put signs up when they want staff, book that hostel, see where you get work before 'moving out to the suburbs' as you may want to stay close to the CBD anyway.

You find jobs in much the same way as you would in UK. Websites, newspapers, adverts in windows..

 

I shouldn't think there is really any difference in finding work in Sydney versus Melbourne.
