How to find Jobs in Australia

Updated on March 14, 2013

Have you just arrived in Australia and searching for part time jobs?During my stay in Australia, I have come across many people who were frustrated for not getting jobs. Its very difficult to survive in such country without jobs.

If you are studying and searching for any part time jobs like: customer service executive , pizza maker, sandwich maker, hungry jacks, Mc Donalds etc. then I will show you the way you need to apply for this type of jobs.

Step 1: Make a Resume

Once you decide to work, the first thing you need to do is to create a well informative resume. Your resume should have information like: your working experience, reference from where you have worked before, your current contact details.

Step 2: Apply for the jobs through mentioned means

  • Classified Ads in Newspaper:

Once in a week the newspaper is having a big section of jobs vacant in the city. Go through the list and note down the jobs you are interested in. And personally give them a call and talk to them saying that you are interested for the job. They will ask you to send your resume or will call you for the interview.

  • Register in Various Job Agencies:

There is a big list of job agencies in Australia. Personally go to that agencies, fill out the details they require. They will give you a call when they get any position vacant for the particular job.

  • Drop your resume at individual shops

Always carry a hard copy of resume with you. Whenever you pass through any shop where you are interested to work, give out you resume to the manager of that shop. They will go through it and give you a call if they are interested to hire you.

  • Give a copy of your resume to your friends or relatives, who are working

Reference is very important in getting jobs in Australia. So if your friend can pass on your resume to his/her manager, there are more chances for you to get job there.

  • Search Gumtree Website

Gumtree is very popular Classified ad website in Australia. There is a section in it, where you can find lots of Jobs. There will be contact number mentioned. Give them a call and arrange an interview.

Step 3: Follow Up

Follow up is very important to succeed in your aim of getting job. If suppose you give a call to an owner of a shop, and he tell you to send your resume. Then don't wait for him to give you a call. You yourself has to call him to know the status of you application. And if suppose he tells you to call next day, do it without fail. By this way only you can fulfill your aim of getting job in short duration.
