Applying for jobs
A lot of jobs will be posted online, so get to know the websites that can offer up opportunities. Sites such as seek.com.au and careerone.com.au are a good place to start, and more short-term casual positions can be found on gumtree.com.au.
Many casual or part-time jobs in smaller hospitality or retail outlets won’t always be advertised online. Sometimes a sign in the window saying “Staff wanted” is all the advertising they do, which is a great opportunity for you to show up in person with your resumé and make a good impression.
Here are a few tips:
- Don’t be shy: Walk into the business and ask to talk to the manager.
- Have your resumé ready: Take at least two copies of your resumé with your contact details to give to the manager. Even if they don’t have a job available right now, they could phone you later down the track.
- Ask the right questions: If there is a job opportunity, be upfront and ask about the expected hours, the pay rate, a start date and any special requirements (uniform costs, training, who your manager will be).
- Get contact details: Don’t forget to store your new boss’s phone number and email address in your phone.
- Pick the right time: Avoid going into the business during busy hours. For restaurants, forget about meal times, and retailers can get hectic at lunch-time on weekdays and on late-night shopping (Thursday in the suburbs, Friday in the city).
- Always show your eagerness: If no work is available, ask if they know of other businesses that may be looking for work. You never know your luck!
