Heya, im goin 1st september, ive paid for membership to a company that helps you find work, only £20 but i did this through the ozintro thing cus im starting with them. How easy is it to find bar work? Im feeling really calm about everythin because of how excited i am, and its worryin me that when i get out there its gonna be a lot harder than i think it is. my plan was just to walk down the beach and ask in every bar, los, really wanna do bar/waitressing work in a bar/resturant on the beach or busy are type thing, cus im guessing thats gonna be a great way to meet people. dont wanna do any office work though, id even just sell deck chairs on the beach! hehe....CANT WAIT! only 4 weeks left at work! get in! xxxxx

To work in a bar in Aussie you'll have to have completed a certificate of RSA (responsible serving of alcohol). I think this can be done in a day and is around $100 (check that though, I'm not sure of the finer points!). Once you've got that under your belt though you'll be set to walk down that beach and find your job :) Bars/restaurants are always hiring and love to take travellers on. Have fun and good luck!
