How to find jobs in Australia:
Australian Employers use a variety of recruitment methods to fill vacancies. It is important you adapt a variety of job search strategies. According to the recent data, 56% of Australian employers advertise vacancies on the internet or newspapers. Other methods include word of mouth, being approached directly by job seekers, social media and networking. Be proactive and adapt to modern recruitment processes. Many employers use technology to research candidates online, conduct video/Skype interviews or simulate work environments. Employers may post vacancies on internal organisation websites, make sure you check those regularly for newly advertised positions.
Résumé & cover letters:
Make sure you match each application to the specific job you are applying for. A generic Resume might not be suitable for each position. Make sure your résumé is current and highlights your transferable skills. Ensure it looks and reads well and above all, make sure spelling, punctuation and grammar is perfect.
How to prepare for your job interview:
Do your research, learn about the organisation and the industry it is operating in, call or visit the organisation, ask questions to properly understand the job. Use modern technology and resources such as Google. When attending interviews, wear appropriate clothes and have a tidy appearance. Follow up on your application as this is your opportunity to make a good first impression and to demonstrate an understanding of the job.
Regional strengths may help determine your next move.
There are also various differences among Australia’s six states and two territories that can greatly influence your choice of area in which to seek work in the country. Whenever possible, try not to limit your search to one area. Employers in remote and regional areas are more likely to struggle to recruit hence your chances of getting a job may be better.
Seek a job in the most appropriate region of Australia.
One may opt to move to Western Australia, for example, with its capital of Perth, a city on the banks of the Swan River combining a Mediterranean style climate with major cultural and artistic venues.
Alternatively, the Northern Territory may be your destination, or one could head to South Australia. Here, one can find Adelaide, which is widely regarded as the country’s wine and festival capital. Queensland, meanwhile, offers Brisbane, with a population growing faster than any other city in the country. A sub tropical climate has also made tourism a key sector here.
Many others emigrating to Australia, however, can’t possibly ignore the country’s largest city, Sydney in New South Wales. It’s here where many of the nation’s defining landmarks, like Syndey Opera House and Sydney Harbour, can be found.
Tasmania has the capital Hobart, which is home to the testing blue water sailing classic, the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race. Melbourne in Victoria, meanwhile, has some of the country’s finest cafes and restaurants. The Nation’s Capital in the Australian Capital Territory, though, is Canberra, being the location of national institutions as well as Federal Parliament.
When to apply for the Australian Visa
