Most student visas allow you to work for up to 40 hours every two weeks while your course is in session, and unrestricted hours during any scheduled course break, but before you undertake any paid work you need to make sure your visa allows you to work. Find out more at the Department of Immigration and Border Protection website.

Australia has a wide range of industries and many have part time employment opportunities, including:
Retail – supermarkets, department and clothing stores.
Hospitality – cafes, bars and restaurants.
Tourism – hotels, motels and backpackers.
Agricultural – farming and fruit-picking.
Sales and telemarketing.
Administration or Clerical roles.
If you have existing qualifications and/or professional work experience, you may be able to secure casual or part time work in your field.

Everyone working in Australia, including international students or those on working holiday visas, have basic rights at work. These rights protect entitlement to:
A minimum wage.
Challenge of unfair dismissal from the job
Leave, breaks and rest periods.
A healthy and safe work environment.
Most employers in Australia are covered by an ‘award’, which sets minimum wages and conditions for a type of job or industry. To find out more about your work rights visit the Australian Government’s Fair Work Ombudsman’s website or call them on 13 13 94. https://www.fairwork.gov.au/
In Australia, employers (your boss) must also do all they can to make sure your job does not hurt you or make you sick. This law is called work health and safety (WHS) or occupational health and safety (OHS).
The law also says your boss must have insurance for you in case you are hurt at work. This is called workers’ compensation. If you are hurt or get sick at work, the insurance may pay for your medical treatment and for your wages until you can work again.
This covers all workers in Australia, even if you are on a temporary visa. Visit Safe Work Australia for more information or to download the latest checklist.
You will also need to get a tax file number to work in Australia. Visit the Australian Taxation Office website to find out more information on getting a tax file number, as well as information about paying taxes in Australia.
How to write a resume and cover letter
A resume is a written record of your education, skills and experience. It offers a summary of your work history.A CV (or curriculum vitae) is similar, but tends to be longer and more detailed.In Australia, both terms are often used, and we will refer simply to resumes on this page.A cover letter accompanies your application. It should be short and specific, highlighting your selling points in relation to the job you are applying for.
Your resume and cover letter is your first chance to convince an employer that you are the right person for the job.
Before you begin writing your resume, think about your work history and note your achievements and skills.The layout of your resume should be neat, simple and easy to read. Aim for 3–5 pages, depending on how long you have been in the workforce. Use headings and dot points.
Employers will be looking for:
education and training levels

If you need help with formatting, resume templates are included with some word processors (such as Microsoft Word) and are available online.
Job and career websites may also provide templates, examples and advice.
Your cover letter is an important component of your application and should:
introduce you to the employer
identify the position you are applying for
convey your enthusiasm for the position
highlight the stand-out qualities that make you a great candidate
inspire the reader to continue reading your application (cover letters are not a summary of your resume).
It only needs to be 1 page and should be addressed personally to the employer or contact for the job.
All cover letters should be tailored to suit that particular job.Look at examples of cover letters. goo.gl/Eh6Bxr
Some jobs will ask you to meet particular requirements or selection criteria. Selection criteria may also be known as core or key capabilities.Your responses should demonstrate, with relevant examples, that you have the required experience, skills and abilities to do the job. Be succinct and use dot points where appropriate.
Tips for job interviews
An interview is often the final step in securing the job you want.The best way to overcome any nerves leading up to a job interview is to be properly prepared.
Before the interview
Go to the interview knowing as much as possible about the company.
Do some research beforehand so you know what they do and what they stand for.
Visit their website or read their most recent company report, and any recent media releases.
Prepare scenarios that highlight your previous achievements and link them to the position’s attributes. However, don’t repeat yourself too much in the interview if you have already done this in your written application.
Identify 3 or 4 personal strengths which you think will set you apart from other candidates—anything from being calm in a crisis to being able to multi-task and meet multiple deadlines.
Review your resume and make copies for the interview.
Get a good night’s sleep so you are well-rested and focused.
Arrive on time—get there no more than 15 minutes before the interview but with enough time to gather your thoughts and relax.
For most positions, formal office attire (like a suit and tie for men, and pants or a skirt suit for women) is usually the safest option. However, it may be more appropriate to wear a smart casual outfit for a labouring position.
Make sure your clothes are clean, neat and ironed without loose threads or missing buttons.
Avoid distractions like loud ties (such as those featuring cartoon characters), strong fragrances and too much jewellery.
Try on your outfit before the interview to ensure it sits well and is comfortable.
During the interview
Believe you are the right person for the job—be confident but not over-confident.
Listen carefully to questions and answer them honestly and competently. If you don’t understand the question make sure you ask for it to be repeated or clarified so you can answer correctly.
Avoid ‘yes’ or ‘no’ responses. Go into detail but don’t provide lengthy, meaningless responses. Manage your time—responses should be around 2 minutes each.
Incorporate your personal strengths into the interview.
Ask 2 or 3 questions at the end of the interview and reiterate your strengths and your enthusiasm for the job.
complain about previous employers or make negative comments
discuss politics, religion, race or marital status
talk about family problems
complain about how hard it is to find work or the number of interviews you have had.
After the interview
Send a brief letter/email to the employer (or call them) to thank them for the opportunity to apply for the position.
Ask for feedback on how you can improve for your next interview.
Be good natured and genuine when seeking feedback and not resentful if you missed out.
Use any feedback to improve your application and interview performance.
There are plenty of ways to find work that suits you, including:
Newspapers and online job sites.
Some institutions provide job notice-boards on campus and online. Contact your institution’s international student support staff to find out what options your institution offers.
Register your details at a recruitment firm; many of them help place people in casual or short-term work.
