Here in Noosa we have many amazing students who find a way to balance studying English, working and enjoying the beautiful beaches. Tony is one of these students and he has been generous enough to share his experience with us.
Tony has been in Noosa since March 2017 and on Saturdays he works at the Eumundi Markets, a popular tourist market in the small town of Eumundi. On Sundays he works at the local Noosa Farmers Market in Noosaville where he is responsible for cooking the dumplings and also selling them to customers. He has been working there for one month and likes it because it gives him the opportunity to meet locals and practise his English with them.
If you’re looking for a job in Noosa he recommends writing a really good description of your skills. He recommends asking your friends if they know of any jobs in the area and to also look on a website called Gum Tree. He also believes that local employers are looking for students with work experience who learn really quickly and are hard working.
Tony sent out many resumes and after two months of looking and hard work he found the job that was right for him. He feels that working your first week with the company is very important as they will be watching and judging if you are taking the job seriously as well as making sure that you are the right fit for their company.
