Visiting potential employers
Visiting personally your potential employers is the most effective way to get a job. It is important to have ready a well-written curriculum vitae/resume and present it in different places. It is essential to speak directly with the manager of the company/restaurant.
Be aware that you will probably not be successful in the first attempt and do not let this discourage you. It is worth visiting the same place repeatedly and showing that you are really interested in the position.

There are many casual placement agencies in Australia. They assign you a wide variety of work, limited only by your skill level. We recommend you be well prepared for the visit.
