Overseas Jobs In Australia

Well, winter has started and is getting pretty cold in Europe and northern America by the fact of the cold weather that many are now experiencing. Some are even having snow in some areas. Sometimes people would like to leave the cold and snow and go somewhere sunny. But money can be an issue for some people, which prevents them from travelling.

The good news is that there is a solution for people who do not mind backpacking and are willing to work along the way at some overseas jobs. We are talking about travelling to Australia and working there. There in Australia will be the sun and warm days. This is a great option to escape the cold and snow, to travel and to see another culture and a beautiful country.

Before your travel down under

One must take the precaution not show up to Australia without it, or else the authorities will not let the traveller into the country. It is illegal to work in Australia during a vacation without the right kind of visa securely fastened in the person’s passport. The working holiday visa allows a person to be in Australia for one year, which is a very good length of time, though one may not wish to stay that long and is not required to do so.

If a person decided to work in Australia for a year, he or she will be required to work for one employer only for six months and then will have to work for a different company every six months, if the person needs to or desires to work the whole time during the stay in Australia. That is the way the visa is set up.

So then perhaps people are probably wondering what kinds of jobs there are available when someone wants to work in Australia during his or her holiday time. There is a lot of work in the Oz area with the farmers who are looking for people to pick fruit and vegetables during the harvest seasons. It is helpful to know that the spring season is from September to November and that the summer season is from December to March if a person desires to be there during the nicest times of Australia’s weather and to work on the farms.

Farming jobs

For those who already speak English, they are really at an advantage of being able to get a job in Australia. They may be able to work in a restaurant or café. There are horse farms that hire temporary workers if they love horses.

For those who have medical experience as a nurse, there certainly often are lots of opportunities to work at a nursing part time in the hospitals or in nursing homes, etc.

There seems to be a lot of administrative and office work available in the main cities of Australia. Perhaps this might be something that someone with those kinds of skills would be interested in during their stay in Australia.

It is even possible to get work at hostels by preparing breakfast, cleaning, serving at the reception counter, etc. In turn, the person may receive free accommodations and a small wage.

Accommodation, hostels or camping?

It is good to make sure that the hostel has some food that can purchase, such as from a café or kiosk, or has a shared kitchen so that one can cook something. It is a good idea also to check to see if the hostel has laundry facilities. Note, that the hostels usually do not provide towels and that the traveller should bring his or her towels.

Perhaps people like the idea of tenting and the real wilderness experience, so this will then create the need for a person to have his her tent. It is important to know that one cannot just pitch the tent anywhere. No, a person is not allowed to pitch a tent along side the road or anywhere on the beach. That is illegal. The tenting traveller will need to stay in a campsite located on a caravan park. Sometimes hostels even have campsites behind their buildings for those who prefer to stay in their tent and it is cheaper than staying in a room in the hostel.

If you a person decides to stay in Australia for six months to a year, it likely would be cheaper to rent a room in a house or an entire house. A hostel would probably cost more over this period, but hostels are suitable for shorter stays.

Find an internship in China

china-shanghaiThe current economic situation and the numerous job opportunities in China make it one of the most attractive countries for students and young graduates. Whether it be in Beijing, Shanghai, and other equally interesting cities, big multinational and national companies are growing exponentially and are seeking foreign talent.

Getting work experience through an internship in China will lead to future opportunities in the Asian market and even in Europe or America.

Why do an internship in China?

China is home to thousands of foreign graduates eager to discover a new culture and a market in full expansion and full of opportunities. Many young graduates stay or return to China after their studies in order to start their careers and enjoy positions of responsibility within small and middle size companies as well as large international groups wishing to establish themselves in Asia. Working in China will give you the opportunity to quickly access higher positions than the you would in your home country.

Getting a first hand experience of the Chinese market through an internship can be a valuable asset for your professional career. In addition to that, with expatriates from around the world, the country becomes a mix of cultures. This multiculturalism will be a great personal benefit, as it will make you more open minded. It’s also a great way to develop your professional network by meeting young people from around the globe.

Legislation in China for internships

As with most countries in Asia, there is no minimum wage in China for a trainee. Some internships are paid, some are not, depending on the company you are working with. In the best case, you can even get an allowance to cover your housing expense or your plane ticket. Other compensations can be applied when you don’t get a proper salary, such as free meals or transportation. However, in any case, this money won’t be declared to the government as internships are officially unpaid.

The process of obtaining a training visa in China

The new Chinese law in July 2013 has made access to internships a lot more complicated for foreign students. The Chinese government gives several reasons for these changes. Among others, trainees are merely employed because they are foreigners, to only bring a Western touch to the Chinese business, not to add real value to the company. Also, China is affected by unemployment as well, so the government wants to push local companies to employ Chinese workers, rather than foreigners.

Previously, the F visa was required to do an internship in China. This visa is now restricted to non-commercial exchanges and visits, including scientific, educational, cultural, sports, and medical reasons, on a temporary basis. Thus, the internship visa no longer exists. As for the Z visa, it is necessary for all foreigners who wish to work in China and get a salary. Thus, it can’t be applied for an internship.

china studies

The best way to legally do an internship in China, and which could also be very rewarding and useful in everyday life or for your personal career, is to enroll in part time Chinese courses. Thus, you can apply for a study visa with a local school or university. The study visa is the X visa, which allows you to do an internship under the supervision of your university / school for a maximum period of six months (X2) or more (X1). Your institution will be able to provide all the documents necessary for the visa X, such as an invitation letter and a letter of acceptance. Another possibility is to get a business visa M, which allows you to stay up to six months.

Required documents:

– An internship contract signed between the company and the university is required to do an internship in China.
– Passport
– The application fee for the visa procedures (about $80)
– Proof of subscription to an international health insurance

Any prospective student interning in China must provide proof of health insurance to obtain a visa. Outside your country, your medical expenses are fully charged to you and it is necessary to be covered by an insurance while you are in China as an intern.
