Job Workshop In Action

FullSizeRenderToday we only had one student sign up for the Job workshop but fortunately seven happy job seekers came in to prepare their English resumes so they can enter the job market here in Noosa. Jace Park who has studied Hotel Management back in Korea has completed his resume (which looks and sounds fabulous) and is now ready to start handing it out to as many companies around Noosa as possible – we hope he finds the best job possible!

Claudio was also spotted at The Cooking Company working hard. Many students here are such inspirations, they study hard in the mornings and then rush off to work in the afternoons of evenings and they still get their homework done.

WWOOF and extend your Working Holiday Visa

Sakura Hirokawa came back to say hi and proudly show her 1 year extension Working Holiday Visa.

Sakura proudly shows her immigration papers for her extra year in Australia.

Like many of our students, Sakura combined a mixture of paid work and voluntary work and all in the Noosa area. WWOOF stands for Willing Workers on Organic Farms and these can be quite small farmsteads and garden centres. You need only do 88 days to qualify for the extra year on your visa and it is a wonderful way to become part of a small local community.

Sakura did her voluntary work at Inner Glow Health products at Tewantin whilst working at a local Japanese restaurant in the evenings. She met other young international people at the farm and the work was enjoyable and not hard.

She was happy that she had gained enough English first ,(thank you teachers Lize and Nicola) to feel confident in the work place.
