1. Understand your Work Rights in Australia :

 

As a student, to protect yourself and your rights, here are the things you need to be aware of before stepping into the Australian job market.

 

    • Working Hours :
  •  

According to the Department of Home Affairs, if you are holding a Student visa subclass 500, “you can only work up to 40 hours in a fortnight. A fortnight means the period of 14 days starting on a Monday.”. This includes all the types of employment, including full-time, part-time, casual, internship, contractor or volunteer.

 

    • Salary :
  •  

Australia is well-known for the highest pay rate for employees. Lawfully, you will receive the minimum wage with a specific occupation or industry.

If an employer is paying you under the minimum rate, it could mean that you are being underpaid. Depending on the situation, please search for the relevant solution and negotiate with the employer if possible.

If you are taking an unpaid job, see more details here.

 

    • Tax :
  •  

To work in Australia, you may need to get a Tax File Number (TFN). It’s free to apply for TFN online by yourself on the Australian Taxation Office’s website.

You don’t have to get a TFN, but without one, you will need to pay more tax, which means your employer will need to deduct higher taxes from salary or wages. If you earn more than $18,200 per year, you will need to file your taxes. The financial year lasts from 1st July (current year) to 30th June (next year) in Australia.

Be careful if you receive cash for your work. Even though paying by cash is more convenient, you may be underpaid because the employer doesn’t want to pay tax for you.

 

    • Super :

 

Super, or superannuation, is money set aside during your working life for when you retire. For most people, super begins when you start work and your employer starts paying a portion of your salary or wages into a super fund for you. You can only claim your super back when you retire, or turn 65 years old, or leave Australia permanently.

In most cases, your super will be registered and paid by your employer.

Get to know more about super via the ATO.

 

    • ABN :
  •  

If you’re working as a contractor, you will need to have an Australian Business Number (ABN). An ABN is a number that identifies your business. It doesn’t replace your tax file number (TFN). It’s free to apply for an ABN by yourself.

 

2. Research the Basics:

 

    • Culture
  •  

“When in Rome, do as the Romans do”. Even though in Australia, people tend to respect each other’s culture and tradition, we still may make mistakes because we lack cultural and traditional understanding of others’ cultures, especially Australian culture.

Therefore, doing research about the culture is crucial to avoid any misleading information or miscommunication when communicating with Aussie or other people.

 

    • Job Market :
  •  

Understanding the type of industry, positions, roles and skills can be your very first step of getting to know about the Australian job market. The more you explore, the more likely that you realize where you would fit in the job market.

Additionally, some insights into the job market could be an advantage for your future job application and job interview.

 

3. Search for Your Desired Position :

 

    • Platforms :
  •  

Job sites like Linkedin, Indeed, Seek, Jora, Adecco or Morgan Consulting are the popular sites for job seekers.

Facebook Jobs and Facebook Groups are also well-known among users, especially Asian. Besides, you can look for opportunities in the specific business such as Uber, Uber Eats, DiDi, Deliveroo, or become a Freelancer on Fiverr.

And don’t forget your school’s career hub/job board – this is the ideal place to find available on-campus positions or from high-quality employers.

 

    • Job Description :
  •  

Normally, there are four main sections of the job description: Value, Accountabilities, Key Selection Criteria and Qualifications. In your application, you should address all four sections and articulate how you fulfil each of these, using examples to illustrate your points.

 

4. Prepare a tailored CV and a Cover Letter :

 

    • Tips to prepare a CV/Resume :
  •  
      • Don’t include your profile picture or your visa status in the CV unless it’s required in the description.
  •  
      • Prioritize the skills that you have and demonstrate them via specific examples instead of listing them out and “grade 5 stars” for them. For instance, if you have good problem-solving skills, describe it through a situation where you apply it and mention the results/achievement if possible so the recruiter could assess your skills more correctly.
  •  
      • In the work experience section, don’t assume that employers have heard of your overseas employer in your previous experience. Include a sentence in your resume explaining the business’s functions.
  •  
      • Include Referees section, who can help refer you to future employers, but remember to ask for their permission first.
  •  

    • Tips to prepare a Cover Letter :
  •  

Here is the good and bad example of a Cover Letter:

5. Prepare for your interview :

 

After following up on the job application with your relevant email, you can be chosen as one of the candidates to receive an email or a call from the recruiter for an interview round. Congratulations!

In Australia, people tend to favour and also suggest the STAR approach for an interview response to ensure your answers will have a good structure, contain relevant key elements, and finish strong. Remember to state your STAR answers in the past tense :

 

  • S – Situation: Where and when the relevant experience happens.0
  • T – Task: What are the required tasks in this experience.
  • A – Action: What action did you do in this circumstance.
  • R – Result: How your action benefits the situation and what was the final results/achievements.

 

 

6. Follow up on your interview :

 

You may want to send an email to find out when the recruiter plans to make their decision. This can help you follow up if you have not heard anything since the interview.

If you are right for the job, the recruiter may wish to speak to your Referees – who can validate your credentials. Ideally, you should have at least two people ready to speak professionally and positively about you in a relatively occupational sense. Remember not to choose your friends.

1. Types of student accommodation

  • On-Campus housing

Another term for on-campus housing is dormitory, which means that you will live together with other students in the university’s accommodation. Nowadays, many universities have developed a range of different residential options on-campus for the student to choose. The common option is a private apartment with shared kitchens, bathrooms and lounges.

One of the main benefits of living on campus is being just a short walk away from your classes, together with easy access to university services and facilities. Usually, bills are covered so you don’t have to worry about paying the bills on-time. However, some dormitories have strict policies that may limit you from gathering friends or organizing home party. And the fees may vary drastically from University to University,

  • Off-Campus hostel

Hostel and guest house accommodation options happen to be the hot choice for newcomers, first-year students and for those who exchange to Australia just for a short-term.

Living in a hostel is a cheaper option for students. It is more flexible in term of location or

One pitfall of the hostel is that you will have to share all amenities such as bathrooms and kitchen with other people.

  • Homestay

Homestay is when you live with a local family in their home. It usually includes a furnished room and meals, and access to cooking and laundry facilities. Bathroom, living and dining areas are shared spaces. A homestay is a good choice for international students who wish to learn and imbibe Australian culture.

One disadvantage of homestay is privacy. As you live with a family, you may feel it uncomfortable with calling friends over or partying at home.

  • Renting

If you look for living independently, you can rent or ‘lease’ a property by yourself or with friends. Many options like share-house, private apartment, studio, … for you to choose.

However, rental accommodation can be expensive and complex since you are responsible for organising the tenancy, connection to utilities, depositing bond, paying monthly rent and ongoing bills. Moreover, you may be bound to a fixed-term contract which is usually from six months to one year term.

4. Know your rights

  • Lease agreement

 

The lease agreement is a legal contract between tenants and landlords. It is very important that you understand the content of the agreement as it can be very difficult to end your tenancy before the lease end date.

 

  • Bonds

 

A bond is a payment made at the start of your lease as a security deposit, in case of property damage, and is usually equal to a month’s rent. You and the accommodation provider or agent must complete a bond lodgment form from the Residential Tenancy Bond Authority (RTBA). This form must be lodged by your accommodation provider, with your bond money within 10 business days, for which you’ll receive official confirmation from the RTBA in the mail.

 

  • Condition report

 

The condition report is important because it can be used as evidence if there is a dispute about who should pay for cleaning or damage, particularly at the end of a tenancy.

 

  • Repairs and maintenance

 

All repairs are the landlord or accommodation providers responsibility, but if the tenant or resident caused the damage, the landlord or provider can ask them to arrange or pay for repairs.

 

  • Ending a lease

 

You can end your tenancy agreement during the fixed term for certain legally specified reasons :

    • Undue hardship
    • The premises become uninhabitable
    • Breach (or repeated breach) of an agreement by the landlord

If you are not eligible for the legally specified reasons, you can consider:

    • Transferring your tenancy to someone else
    • Breaking your tenancy agreement (you may have to pay the break fee)

  • Need more advice or help
