Hi,

I've been living in Australia for 8 months now. Like most of us I had to start by looking for job to make some money. so I went to resto, cafe, shops etc. as well as I applied online on different website.

Finally after 2 weeks I got an Interview and got my job.

Well, I thought It could be a good idea to leave here a list of websites that I used to find a job:
http://www.monster.com.au
http://www.gumtree.com.au
http://www.jobsearch.gov.au
http://www.jobsites.com.au/
http://www.ctra.com.au
http://www.jobnet.com.au
http://www.bridgeconsulting.com.au
http://www.frontlineretail.com.au
http://www.workoz.com
http://www.search4jobs.com.au
http://www.natrec.com.au

Feel free to add any additional website ;-)
I hope this is useful!

Best of luck to everybody

[ Edit: Removing link to make sure this isn't a promo. ]

MY CAREER

That's a pity that all links have been removed from my post. I thought that was more practical to just click on a link.

I don't really understand that obsession of wanting to remove links in case it is promotion :-S

It was not, is from my own experience. However even if it was promotion, look at the number of websites it can't be bad as it is really useful information.

Well all the websites that I gave are free websites where you can pick job ads and apply to try getting a job.

Just a not the last post (about mycareer) looks more like a promotion if you go in that sense : the url doesn't appear it is a link of keywords in caps letter...

Well hope the list that I gave will help people ;-)

Enjoy your stay in Oz

I saw your post before it was edited, and only one link was actually hyperlinked - all the others appear as now, with just the url but no hyperlink.

really ??

I took time to put links of each of them!! I'm very unlucky, I wrote two times the post, the first time my internet connection crashed and lost the message and then I did it a gain and published and I saw that it was not automotic links, so I put hyperlinks of each of them.

I didn't see that it didn't work!!

Best to use the preview option - I tend to on most posts to make sure it reads ok.

I don't really understand that obsession of wanting to remove links in case it is promotion :-S

Even with the strict rules in place, every day, there's at least a dozen clearly and obviously promotional posts (e.g.plain spam) being made, plus half again as many which appear to be on the edge, until you go look into the posting history of the member in question, and see that no, they're not "on the edge" after all, but clearly promotional as well.
It sucks that we tend to not give newer members the benefit of the doubt, but when you're a very directed target for spammers like that, I do believe it's the right policy. Even people working for 'respected' companies like, say, Nomads (to name one recent example), come here to pretend to be just a regular traveller and promote their products. Experience has thus taught us to treat all unsolicited links (e.g. not directly in reply to a question) with suspicion, and to be better safe than sorry. (We also do this in order to not leave links around that others could go and point to and say "hey, but you allow that!")

Of course, because the policy is as strict as it is, most people never see most of the (attempted) spamming going on, as the posts in question are removed very swiftly. This might make our "obsession" seem unwarranted. Yet if the policy were different, we feel the forum would quickly be overrun with those promotional posts (because the more they're posted, the more chance there'd be of some being allowed through!), thus destroying any of the value it currently has to everyone who comes here to ask questions.

The more you participate in the forum, the more moderators will see that promotional activities aren't your goal, and they'll quickly grow a lot more lenient in what they allow. Meanwhile the forum remains as uncluttered and clean as possible for the vast majority of travellers to participate in. :)
