It’s essential to have a job for most international students while studying in Australia to manage their finances efficiently. Having income in Australian dollars is necessary and exciting for international students. There are other perks to working while studying, such as understanding the Australian work culture and learning all the required soft skills while gaining experience to make it through to the eventual goal of getting permanent residency.
The Student visa (Subclass 500) allows you to work for forty hours per fortnight. The government determines the working hours to enable students to balance work and studies. However, during official holidays, working hours are unrestricted for the students. During holidays, you can take several jobs and save extra money.
A local bank account is essential, and you also have to apply for a Tax File Number (TFN). You should know your employment rights and avoid employers who offer to pay cash in hand or pay nothing during the trial work period, as both these arrangements are illegal. As of 1st July 2021, the National Minimum Wage is $20.33 per hour or $772.60 per week.
Skilled and qualified carpenters never go out of demand in Australia. If you know how to use complex tools, have experience working on renovation projects, and are willing to learn, it won't be challenging to find an employer who offers you a job as a carpenter.
The country is filled with highly skilled and experienced carpenters. Still, as the carpenter occupation is listed on the Medium and Long-term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL), you can migrate to Australia and get a carpenter's job. You should apply for Certificate III in Carpentry and learn all the essential skills that will make you a better carpenter on the job.
Australia has one of the lowest unemployment rates globally. International students have several seasonal casual work opportunities as it hosts international sports and cultural events throughout the year. Getting a job in Australia depends on your strength, interest, experience, and relevant work experience. Following are the common areas of employment for international students:
You must develop skills that can get you hired faster than others. It’s essential to stand out from the crowd with additional skills like piano playing, graphic design, and more.
If you own a car and have a valid driving license, you can register with Uber. You can work during the hours of your convenience and make extra income. You can also join food delivery companies like Menulog, Deliveroo or DoorDash. For jobs in other areas like retail, tourism, marketing, administration, or more, you should create a profile on websites like JoraIndeedSeek, and other similar websites and let employers find you. Being active on online portals like Gumtree or Linked can also help you find a job of your choice. You can also use social media and your university’s CareerHub portal to get employment.
