How Do I Find Employment In Australia?
 

Whilst EJN is not a recruitment agency, we do provide the opportunity to search through environmental job advertisements in the environmental industry.

We also have heaps of free resources about working in the environmental sector on our website and provide a short program of videos to help with resume writing.

Below is some useful information for people from the international community looking to get work in Australia.

It can be very challenging to get employment in Australia, as work visas can be difficult to obtain.

It is highly recommended that you read the immigration website, https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/ to find out how you can get a visa, as this outlines the criteria determining whether you are eligible for a position.

Sometimes foreign nationals have a difficult time securing work in Australia because they are unfamiliar with the application process. Very few employers are interested in generic cover letters sent to many potential employers with a generic resume. You should research each position and company, and tailor your entire application (cover letter, CV and key selection criteria) to the position. If it is requested, you cannot omit the key selection criteria. These are often listed in the job advertisement or position description. It is important to always contact the employer to see if there is a position description. Often, your application will be passed over if it is missing any of these elements. 

It is also very important for foreign nationals to be able to communicate clearly in English. This means either working on your language skills in an academic setting or at the very least, having someone else read your application to ensure that there are no grammatical or spelling errors. It is easy to tell if someone's English skills are not very good, and these applications can also get passed over very quickly.

Once you are certain that your CV is up to Australian Standards and presents a great impression, you can then use job search sites such as EJN to find potential positions.

"My previous resume was crammed and hard to read. Following Kay’s advice in the program, I was able to put all the necessary content in a more structured and presentable way. The duration of the videos makes it very easy to follow. I highly recommend this program to anyone like me looking to improve their resume."
