How to Find a Job in Sydney if You're a Student

The employment market in Sydney can indeed be tough. In many industries, it's highly competitive. So, if you're a recent graduate or you're currently studying at University or TAFE, you're probably wanting to secure a suitable job in your field of study and get ahead in Sydney.


Here are my suggestions on how to find a job in Sydney if you're a student (or graduate):


Get online and research what entry-level student/graduate jobs are available.


Have a look on job websites like Seek.com.au and Indeed.com.au for positions in your field that you can do. Try to avoid applying for jobs that ask for substantial relevant experience. You don't want to be going for jobs that you're not quite yet suitable for because you lack in the right level of experience the employer is after.


Start working on updating and revamping your CV and cover letter.

Cold call employers in your chosen field of study.


Pick up the phone and cold call employers in your area. Ask if you can send them a copy of your resume. Mention that you are about to graduate/have recently graduated and you are looking for a job in your field.


Network online.
