WORKING IN AUSTRALIA
Working in Australia is a real and fruitful opportunity, but you need to be well-informed in order to embark on this experience in the best way possible.
Australia’s labour market is thriving and growing – Australia is the only country that has never entered an economic recession in the last 26 years! Its unemployment rate is among the lowest in the world – only 5.7% (compared to 11% in Italy). Salaries are high and there are job offers in every professional field.
However, your chances of working in the Australian market depend on several factors such as your English level, the visa you choose, your previous professional experience and your studies.
HOW TO LOOK FOR (AND FIND) A JOB IN AUSTRALIA
Before you start looking for a job, you will need to prepare a CV for Australia by adapting the European CV format to what is commonly used down under. It will also be good to write a cover letter, which is a presentation letter in which to display your most significant experiences, your education and the skills you have acquired so far.
Once your CV is ready, you can throw yourself headlong into the job search! If you have a professional profile, you can start using LinkedIn, or start from the most popular online portals to get an idea of the most wanted positions, the most popular skills and average wages.
However, the best way to make yourself known in Australia is by handing out your CV. So, make some prints, go out with your best smile and deliver your resume by going directly to the shops and/or offices that interest you. You’ll see that direct contact always pays off in Australia!
Visa – A suitable visa is required to work in Australia. The law prohibits working with a tourist visa. Even if you find someone willing to pay you illegally, you may be deported from the country and may not be able to return to Australia. There are other visas that allow you to work regularly in Australia, even for a limited period.

Tax File Number – As soon as you arrive at your destination, it is essential to request a Tax File Number, a sort of Australian tax code that is indispensable for you to be able to work legally in Australia. You can request it online, and your GO STUDY advisor will do it for you for free to Australia.
Salaries – Australia, as you know, is an expensive country. However, while it is true that the cost of living here is much higher than in Europe and Latin America, salaries are also higher. Just think, Australia is one of the highest paid countries in the world! For example, an employee earns an average of €3,000 per month (about $4,400 AUD), so you can live comfortably without giving up anything.
