Letter of reference for getting a job in Australia

Have you had a good relationship with your previous employer?

If the answer is yes, take advantage of it and ask for a job reference! Written references are very often used by employers to assess the different candidates - especially if you have no experience in Australia yet. Letter of reference is often an essential part of your application.

Check below a template of a letter of reference and send it to your former bosses! If you have a Reference letter from your previous employer from your country that is written in your language, simply make your own translation of the letter and attach it to the original.
