A Guide for the Working Student

As a student, we all know that one of the best ways to retain the knowledge you get from the classroom is to apply it continuously until it becomes a habit, and what better way than to engage in some form of work, preferably in the field you’re currently studying? If you’re thinking the same thing, then you’re not alone: around 48% of Australians currently study and work at the same time. It is not only a means to practice what you’re taught, it’s also a great way to save up and help with your expenses!

We understand that looking for a job can be daunting, especially if you are in a new country or city. So, we have created this guide to help you with your goals, and we not only supplied the resources for you, but we also took the time to review them! Once you get your resume ready, visit these employment websites and get started on your journey:
