How to Apply for the Best Jobs in Australia

Life is good when you can get paid while on vacation! Working holidays abroad, in a way, can provide this opportunity. They allow you to travel the world, meet interesting people, develop your professional skills AND earn an income to support living expenses during your time abroad. Wow!

So, how can you apply for a dream job in Australia—one of the most beautiful and friendly places in the world—and turn your daydream of a working holiday into a reality?

Dream Jobs in Australia

First, get to know where the real opportunities lie.

The job market Down Under, like in many other places around the world, can be a competitive space. Find out what industries are in need and consider applying for positions that are in high demand by Aussie employers.

Hint: there is currently an unprecedented staffing shortage of hospitality workers in Australia.

The Australian hospitality and tourism industry saw an exit of many local resort workers that were attracted to the promise of jobs within the relatively recent oil and gas industry boom. This shift in the Australian employment market has created the perfect opportunity for you to snatch up an amazing job in an incredible location.

Second, understand your job search options.

Sure you can go direct and apply for a job on your own; but think about it. Why would an employer choose you—a foreigner separated from them by many miles and a massive time difference—when they can find a qualified local candidate through a reputable staffing agency? To be blunt, they’re unlikely to spend their busy schedules managing a direct conversation with you.

Hint: consider alternatives to traditional job search methods and channels.

Did you know you can find and apply for working holiday jobs in Australia through a cultural exchange organization?  Alliance Abroad Group’s Work Experience Australia program, for example, provides a streamlined path to paid hospitality positions with guaranteed job placement arranged before arrival. Better still, they will walk you through the job matching and interview process, assist you in obtaining work visa documentation, and help you find safe and affordable housing. Alliance Abroad Group’s direct relationships with luxury resorts and popular tourist destinations in Australia could be your ticket to landing a dream job there.

Finally, show your enthusiasm to stand out from the crowd.

Best Jobs in Australia

The best jobs in Australia call for the best candidates, right? To Aussie employers, personality and enthusiasm counts for a lot! During the application and interview process, be creative and demonstrate how you can provide value to their organization. If you choose to apply for a hospitality position, fine-tune your resume so that any applicable experience and transferable skills—like customer service, time management, and resourcefulness—are clearly highlighted.

With the right strategy in place and determination to seize an opportunity of a lifetime, your chances to land a dream job in Australia are very good.

Good luck!

    • Hey there Lili,

      Please take a look at the program eligibility requirements. If you meet these requirements and have at least one year of hospitality experience, you should be good to go. After you fill out an application and pay the deposit, our team will work with you to match you with the right employer and position. If you are eligible for the program but we can’t find you a position, you will get your $500 back.

      I hope this helps. Good luck!
