Hi All! My name is Jamie, I am a carpenter from St. Albans, England and I am flying to Perth on March 7th on a working holiday visa. Looking to settle in Perth for a while and get some casual work, any advice on the best way to start out?!... Are there agencies for casual work seekers? Is it better to walk CV's around to different businesses? Is fruit picking a good option in WA? Would anyone likely put a level 3 carpenter to good use even without tools? Any advice would be very much appreciated! Many thanks Jamie
Hello Perth Poms, Quick query regarding the employability of a professional on a working holiday visa. As you all are probably aware, a working holiday visa restricts the visa holder to 6 months of work with an employer. Would this restriction reduce my chances of employability in my particular field? (Structural/Civil Engineering). Has anyone on this forum gained 6 months (or longer) experience in their field of expertise whilst on a WHV? Can employers potentially extend this 6 months period if need be? If so, could this potentially lead to sponsorship of a permanent visa? Thanks in advance. Craig.
Guest posted a topic in News & ChatHi Everyone, I was hoping to go on a working holiday to Perth next year but decided what am I waiting for and have decided to go in November, I'm 20 years old and I'll be going on my own as friends are at uni and others have bailed but I want to go really bad. Its four months away, I'm a little nervous to be going over and traveling on my own, as well as finding a job. I'm thinking of doing farm work for the first few months? Any tips? Thanks, Yaz :ssign19:
