Hi guys, I've been in Melbourne for a week now and can't find any work, feeling pretty down at the mo and would love any advice you can give about where to look for a full time job for a few months.
Please email me on -snip-
Thanks
Jess

Hey! Have you thought about maybe going to a working hostel around victoria somewhere? I've found one that looks nice http://www.emeraldbackpackers.com.au/ and I don't think it's too far out of melbourne. Also, you could maybe send your cv to agencies or go to a hostel with a job club, like all nations or hotel bakpak...although I'm not sure how good they would be.

I've not actually been to aus yet - planning on flying in to melbourne in april - so I'm sorry I can't be more help!!

plz let me know if you manage to find something though cos I'm quite worried about finding work when I get there!! :)
