Hey,

Don't worry on that front, I'm currently in Sydney & can tell you there's as many jobs here as there is Irish folk (& that's a lot) You won't struggle to pick up work in cities like Sydney & Brisbane, then anywhere rural there's always things like fruitpicking.....;)

All depends on what work you'd actually like to do, bar & other hospitality work you'll have no problem......

Good luck & get yourself over to Oz ;)

Hi,

before finding my current job (my real job qualification in multimedia) I had to find a job just to make money. I didn't have any experience in bar work etc.

So I applied in different bars, cafe, restaurant and i finally found a job in a deli/cafe as a counter staff, preparing sandwiches and plates for client orders. When there is a will there is a way! Without any experience if you are self motivated and fast learner you can find.

My main problems was that I am french and they were afraid that I couldn't understand, but you are irish so english won't be a problem for you.

Just take your resume, motivation and go into cafes, restaurant etc. Tell that you have experience(even if it not true) that you are fast learner etc. They will give you a try day, take that chance to show you can do it!

Best of luck
