Earn Cash, Make Friends, and Travel Australia
Aboriginal legends tell the story of the great Rainbow Snake that winds its way through the waterways of Australia. The story creates a common bond among the first Australians and has wound its way into the hearts of modern citizens. No other nation on earth can boast about being an island and a continent at the same time. The land down under was home to humans over 50,000 years ago. Their descendents share a land of contrasts with descendents of immigrants from Europe, Africa, and Asia.
Australians love the treasure they have in their sandy beaches. Over 85% of them live within 50 miles of the Australian coast. These hospitable people spend their leisure time playing one of their favorite sports, dining at fine food establishments, playing on the beaches, or enjoying a love affair with the Australian arts community.
Australians are not the only ones who enjoy sandy beaches and lively entertainment. Each year, over 100,000 tourists fly in from around the world to see all that the country has to offer them. They dream of days spent splashing in the warm Pacific surf, afternoons looking for kangaroos and koalas, and nights dancing at popular clubs meeting the locals.
Some people come with a small amount of cash dreaming to see the country while working in the hospitality industry. For those few who want something more than a holiday, finding a job is not only possible, but probable if they prepare in advance. The tourism industry in Australia is always looking for dependable employees. High numbers of openings are available in the hospitality industry as well.
Signing on as a bar attendant is the most obvious way to meet the locals. Work is usually also available at one of the local wineries as a wine steward or as a cellar hand. Restaurants offer travelers good food and a good chance at landing a job. If none of these places offers the right career opportunity, job searchers can look at any of the hotels for a job with the room service staff.
For those who want to work in Australia and earn enough money to travel, the first and best advice is to take the Responsible Service of Alcohol course that is required in most Australian states. Experts advise that people should take the course before leaving their countries of origin. This course is required for anyone who will be involved in serving or handling alcoholic beverages. Fortunately the internet makes it easy to prepare for the RSA exam. A number of websites offer preparatory courses. The cost is nominal. Before paying any fees, prospective students should verify that the company providing the training is nationally accredited.
Our company is an Australian based company offering a variety of online courses to potential students in Australia and beyond. Hospitality Net courses are nationally accredited. The RSA course is priced at a reasonable $75 in Australian currency. Upon passing, they are ready for their journey to Australia to live, work, travel, and enjoy.
