Hey Everyone

I would really appreciate any advice available regarding finding work in Oz?

My friend and I are spending 5-6 months over there next year (mainly NSW, Victoria and Queensland ) and we are little concerned about finding work. I have lots of experience within Customer Service and admin BUT I have no bar or reastaurant experience whereas my friend is in the opposite position - will either situation hinder our individual searches for work???

Are we worrying over nothing ???


Many Thanks

I dont think that will cause too many problems. There are plenty of opportunities around the place for travellers to get work. For example, you will always be able to get call centre work... My advice would be not to worry too much.

If you want to work in a bar, you must have an RSA certificate (Responsible Serving of Alcohol) and it would also help to have completed a bar course. My daughter has just done both here in Melbourne cost $360AUD see
