Focus on the prize for part time jobs leading to full time sponsorship

In the last 5 years 700,000 Australian jobs have been created, driving Australia’s unemployment rate below 5 per cent. Australia’s unemployment rate is lower than any of the major advanced economies in the world. Strong growth in the number of new part-time jobs helped to keep Australia’s unemployment rate steady in January 2013 that has key advantages for international students to help support their living expenses while studying in Australia.

One of the advantages of being an international student in Australia is that you can receive permission to work on your student visa up to 40 hours per fortnight while you study. You can work up to 40 hours per fortnight while your course is in session and full time on your holiday periods. However, you cannot start work until you have commenced your course in Australia. If you’re bringing your family with you, your dependents can also work up to 40  per fortnight once you have started your course in Australia. If you have started a course at the Masters or Doctorate level however, your dependents may work unlimited hours. If you or your dependents work in excess of these restrictions, your visas may be subject to cancellation.

Additional to working while on a student visa there are temporary and permanent work visas available for Australia depending on your qualifications, work experience and meeting visa requirements criteria.

Need help finding a part time job whilst studying in Australia.  All our students are from all types of backgrounds and not everyone is the same when it comes to job hunting. Most students will struggle to find work if they do not have the right tools and strategy. A common error that students make when hunting for a job is they send or print out 50 resumes and just send them off or drop them off hoping for a positive result. Other tactics in most cases need to be implemented when hunting for a part time job. A strategy behind job hunting needs to be implemented. Think of job hunting like an actual full time job in itself.

Staying positive with good charisma always attracts employers. A tips or strategy to try is offering your skill to work a couple of days for unpaid work with the employer to prove you can impress  the employer to actually employ which may lead to a sponsorship. Social media job hunting with LinkedIn and facebook are also tools for good results for some of our students. This is just one of many examples strategies that you can learn from us.
