If you are looking for an Australian company, you will need to learn how to find a job in the Australian way! Keep in mind that all contacts with employers should be about what you can do for them and not what they can do for you.

Here are some really useful tips.

Apply online

Search the “Professions” section at the employers’ or industrial sites to find vacancies. Many of these websites allow you to submit online.

Do not rely solely on advertised vacancies, many jobs are employed internally or among other networks. Keep in mind that some companies include vacancies for various reasons, such as formalities, to create a recruitment database or to view tax and other expenses.

Start off small..small can lead to big!

Apply for an internship Yes Even if you are not paid – this will give you the opportunity to get a “local work experience” and the employer’s admiration – you will need to convince your employer that you have excellent skills and that you are full of energy and commitment to work for the company

Consider creating  to accept the contract as an independent employee

Accept casual work

Networking and social connections

  • Be social!
  • Australians are social people, who join and merge by joining different groups / events
  • Participate in local community events and build social connections such as a local sports club or local public speaking club such as Toastmasters
  • Participate in professional activities organized by professional bodies to interview other professionals such as seminars, workshops or meetings such as ACS, CPA, Engineers Australia and other organizations
  • Join our multicultural community International Friends Australia. We run regular social events including an English chat club where you can practice your English and meet new people

Apply in person

  • Many informal or part-time jobs are not always advertised in hospitality establishments or smaller retail outlets
  • Introduce yourself professionally and appropriately to the work you want to do
  • Go to work and ask to speak to the manager
  • Find out the name of the hiring manager + contact details
  • Get your CV + cover letter – Read more about how to create your Australian CV and cover letter
  • Choose the right time: Avoid appearing during busy business hours, like restaurants busy with mealtimes, and retailers can experience difficulties at lunch time on weekdays and late night shopping nights.
  • Always show your confidence and motivation: If there is no work available, ask if you can leave your contact details in case something appears and ask if they know other work you might be looking for. You do not know your luck!
  • Apart from large companies, approach small companies and businesses – many of them are quite open to employ those who just started or international students like your local computer shop or local tax agent in your neighborhood and do not forget that small businesses often give you more opportunities to learn and grow!
  • Add contact details to the database manager / mailing list and follow-up – not only once but several times in different ways!
  • Contact community centers and let them know that you are available for certain hours to contribute your skills – yes, even if it means unpaid community service. In this way you can get a “local experience”

Building a database / mailing list of companies

Search and register e-mail addresses and first name of human resources manager – Search the company’s sites or contact the company directly for information

Create a spreadsheet to record all details of the employer including follow-up information and so on

Refer to this job listings spreadsheet

Create an email script that works to find a job

Add an attractive line to the topic such as “A qualified IT technician / technician is looking for work”

If you’re sending to a list of companies, add your email address in the “To” section and copy all company email addresses to BCC so that others can not see everyone’s email address

If you are sending one person, only one person, make sure you specify the person’s name if you know “Dear Manager”

Send email to the same companies (database / mailing list) every 3 weeks where some may not see your email the first time you send the message or the hiring manager may not need someone to work the first or second time you send

Make sure you are on time – that means you arrive early, ie ahead of schedule, and do not arrive late, this is Australia, people must be on schedule!

Dress professionally

Speak with confidence and clarity

Tell the hiring manager that you will be happy to have a trial period of a few days or hours to be able to confirm whether you have the skills

Make sure you have searched for company information before the interview

Be prepared to ask questions about the situation

Do not bring coffee or food in your hand!

Be prepared to greet the hiring manager by their name and shake their hand

Have you found a job yet?

never give up. If you never give up, and if you exercise patience, perseverance and perseverance, you will be successful!

Do not forget – once you have found an employer willing to take care of you, contact our registered immigration specialists and provide contact details for your employer so that we can assess your company’s eligibility and provide all employer-sponsored visa options.

Job search information is still more useful …

What if they asked you for a local work experience? Find ways to create your own working experience! For example. Volunteer work or create work for yourself

Send private message directly to the Recruitment Manager!

Advertise yourself as an independent freelancer If you have a skill (such as a website design or computer maintenance)

Create business cards, website, or business name

For skilled permanent residency visas, you may be able to get extra points if you have one year local experience rather than a professional year course

Once you get a job, build a good relationship with the employer – try to consider their point of view and business needs

Simple, casual function can lead to super function as well as care and permanent residence!
